Just picked up my MTM suit - Critique the fit, please!

Note:
-Suit is Navy Blue (the lighting and camera man throws off the colour)
-Trouser Pockets are slanted
-No belt was worn as to show trousers (for those wondering
)

Feedback thus far (on the suit itself):
-Add pleats to reduce/prevent flaring of the pockets (on next pants)
-Possible loosen area around thigh (immediately, if possible) to reduce flaring and allow for cleaner lines/fit on the back thighs.

Pants:


Jacket&Pants:


Additional Shots:

looks nice, maybe a bit too much flash in the picture?

Most of the shots were taken at the shop actually with no flash and it was bright outside

The pants look like they're too tight around the waist/hips. You're getting pocket flare just standing still.

The pocket are slanted btw. With that in mind, you still think the waist/hips are tight?

EDIT: Ah, I see it now on the front shot picture..thanks

I think you should have gone with pleats. It looks like the padding in the shoulder extends too far out creating that indentation on the sleeve right below the shoulder. Your pants shouldn't be breaking in the back behind your thighs like they are, not sure what's causing that. If I were you I would point all of these things out to your salesman or whoever you contracted with to make the suit. There are quite a few little things they got wrong, the flaring pockets not least among them. Sometimes, MTM is little better than OTR and this is one of those times.

Mostly the flaring pockets is my issue, otherwise looks good. And I like the shoe selection.

Ok - I'll have the tailor look at the flaring for sure as I didn't notice that in the final fitting.

Shoulder - I did request a padded shoulder for a more "boxy" feel. Next time around, I will most likely get a softer shoulder.

As for the break in the back behind the thighs, I wonder if it's merely how I just put on the trousers and then took a picture - I'll try the trousers on again and be more aware this time around. If it's still there, I will have them check it out again.

Personally, I think this MTM suit fits me far better than any OTR suit. I usually have the issue with a large chest/shoulders (40R, sometimes 38R) accompanied with mine relatively smaller waist (32ish).

Thanks for all the feedback thus far
, keep them coming!

Nice. As many have discussed the pockets are my only "issue." Where'd you go?
