If shoulders don't fit, it's not worth it. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the jacket looks like it may be too long also.

The way to get pants to fit properly is to either have them made for you, or buy the pants that fit you closest to ideal then take it to a good tailor and have him/her fix the other areas. It also doesn't hurt to be in great shape.

The suit couldn't possibly have looked good in the store.

Guess I haven't learned enough to catch all this stuff in real life situations.

It did, at Saks, have all the tell-tale signs that the fit was not perfect, but the pictures honestly make it look 10x worst than it really is.

But anyway, I appreciate the help, fellas. Thanks for the tip on the pants, musicguy. Will lurk some more and try to get this right.

Happy holidays to you all.
