    Next time check ur standing position.

    I am unsure whether the cutter understands your posture.

    still at early stage?

    +1.

    Both the shirt and the suit look too tight around the waist, particularly at the back, but (perhaps partially as a result of being a bit too tight at the waist) have fabric bunching at the upper back on both the suit jacket and the shirt.

    At least with the shirt you can have the darts adjusted, but it could be more difficult to do something with the jacket, although I'm sure that a good tailor should be able to deal with it.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much is Lee Baron charging for a 2pc suit and shirts at the moment?

    For the shirt - looks like you need another inch in your armhole, 1/2 inch less (or so) across the shoulder, another 1.5 inches in your waist and the sleeves could be longer.

    The jacket sleeves look the right length - I'd put you in a slightly longer jacket. The suit sure could use a good pressing - hard to tell the fit since the whole thing is hanging strangely.

    Sleeve pitch for both shirt and jacket needs to be adjusted. In your natural posture, the materials are bunching up at the back of your arms. Tailors will usually tell you that there is no problem because when you walk, your arms are swinging forward, not staying still by your side. I don't accept that theory, but that is just me.
