How Does This Suit Fit Me?

Hey everyone. First time poster here looking for some feedback on a couple new suits I've recently purchased. I have my own thoughts about the suits but I'm curious to know what you guys think. I'd like to be sure I'm not being too critical. Both of these suits fit the same so I'm posting a pic of one of them.

Thanks for any feedback, positive or negative.

Badly

Not much going for it.

The suit was made to measure.

My right shoulder is low but I think my posture may be off in that picture, which is making it worse.

Welcome to the forum, abq. Like Unbel said, your drop shoulder is causing a lot of the issues. Was that accounted for during the process? Were you measured in person or was it an online job?

Thanks foir the welcome, Murlsquirl.

It was an online order, so all my measurements were submitted. I am pretty confident of their accuracy. The drop shoulder was never accounted for, but I honestly never noticed it until you guys pointed it out. The online process asked for the shape of my shoulders and I chose the sloped option.

I also have a dropped right shoulder (not sure why this happens), albeit not so pronounced as yours. I've had success with asking an alterations tailor to place a bit of padding on that side to even things out a bit.

That said, this coat also looks quite short, which of course cannot be fixed m

The shoulder don't seem to fit well. The sleeves look all twisted. It looks all wrinkly in the back. I'm not digging it.

Thanks for the responses everyone.

The suits were ~$500~ each.

The high button stance and jacket length were my two main concerns. Unfortunately neither of these can be fixed through alterations. I am going to contact the maker about replacements.

Why buy two at once? Seems like such a waste, get your fit locked in first, can't force it.

It really isn't that bad though, but the trousers seem a little loose as well plus a half inch short possibly. Who made this suit, if I may ask?

Thanks for the reply AriG.

I had purchased a suit from this company a year or so ago and it fit. I figured there wouldn't be an issue since my measurements haven't changed.

I'd rather not name the company until I give them a fair chance to resolve the issue. I left a message with my rep this morning so we'll see.
