I was browsing through my wedding photos taken almost 2 years ago and thought about sharing some pics of the suit I made. Of course I took some tips from all you folks here before heading to the tailor. Feel free to critique. I'm not exactly built like a model, so forgive my looks...

Very, very sharp, the tie pretty much says it. No offense but you seem to be on the shorter side (about 5'2, 5'3 perhaps?) but the fit of the trousers and shirts not only make you look taller but show off your physique. Carry on dude!!

I think you look about 14 y.o. in the first picture, albeit a stylish 14 y.o.

Asian people get married at 9 sometimes in some countries. JK.

When he's 60 he'll look 30. Asian people have good genes.

Thanks for all the comments.
JFKJean, no offense taken and you are darn close. I'm like a midget
It's already difficult battling with the typical Asian stereotype and with my slight built, finding nice fitting clothes is often a headache. I deliberately asked for a more tapered look. Overall I'm happy with the suit and all, but I'm not so sure about the sleeve lengths. alexei, I'm close to 34 this year. It's terrifying to count the increasing number of laughter lines on my face. acidicboy, here are some pics of the both of us.

You're 34? Jesus.

I like your wife's sash. Not something you see on a lot of wedding gowns.

Love the pictures, and the suit.

Very nice!

Just out of curiousity, how tall are you?
