    I think the shoulder looks too strong on your build.

    Agreed. They're verging on zoot suitish.

    It's a bold check, but sometimes the world needs a bold check. It certainly works better as a three-piece.

    I'm also reminded of that great passage early on in The Crying of Lot 49, where a terribly sensitive used-car salesman buys only sober, natural-shoulder suits with abnormally narrow lapels, in order to appear less like a used-car salesman.

    Sleeves are too long, obviously, but otherwise I think it looks fucking awesome.

    I agree with all that the sleeves are too long by a lot. The body of the coat looks a little too long as others have said as well. Hard to tell exaclty without a full body shot, though.

    The fit of the chest, shoulders, and back especially are terrific.

    Yeah, the sleeves obviously need to be shortened and I do agree that the length is a bit long for me, but those are relatively easy fixes that I would never let dissuade me from a purchase if everything else was great. I have 6 other Tom Ford suits that I had to have the sleeves and jacket length shortened on, but it's much better than having to hassle with other fit issues that I would have with other suits. And, yes, I do agree the pattern is a bit bold, but I think it can be pulled off quite well in the right setting when it's clearly an exquisitely constructed piece of work. For the record, all my other TF suits are more conservative in color and pattern, and all work extremely well in rotation with the rest of my work wardrobe.

    It fits well for what it is, I don't like some elements, for example, sleeves are too tight, the jacket itself seems little tight to me,especially waist. Shoulders are too strong. I am not going to say anything about the peak lapel and pattern. What would be the occasion you are going to wear this suit for?

    Awesome. Hem the sleeves and rock that bitch. Not too much though. You don't want to be the "loud suit guy"

    Looks like something Lebron would wear.

    The shoulders seems big, but don't look like they fit that badly.
    What's the extra sleeve material hanging down bellow the bicep about?

    not to my taste ... but looks well made. interestingly a friend sent me a link of the exact same suit on ebay that he was eyeing. i think it was a different size though.

    you can do a lot with it - wear the pants separately, wear the jacket separately, wear the vest with the jacket etc etc.

    enjoy it.
