He added functional jacket sleeves buttons and loosened the pants. i think the sleeves can be a bit shorter. I might go back to ask him to fix it. But what do you think needs to be fixed?

Your shirt sleeves look too long/big.

To your preference, but I would take the shirt sleeve up to where the jacket sleeve is now, then the jacket 1/4" above that. Also, do a forum search on "jacket sleeve", "shirt sleeve" and "wrist bone" and you'll find lots of discussion as to where people like their sleeves to hang. You can also trawl through pages of the What Are You Wearing Right Now thread and see lots of examples of what various people do and see what you like.

My preference as well.
I'm wondering why an "expert" tailor would put working buttonholes at this sleeve length and whether this could be fixed without going into the shoulders. Looks like a nice suit, Purple Label?
