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

    Looks good on you. If you like the bold plaid then keep it - it'd be easy to mix 'n match, too.

    Out of curiosity, do you have fit pics of your other TF suits? It's nice to see that they work on regular people.

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

    Bingo.

    Looks great, beyond the little things already mentioned. Guaranteed to draw attention.

    I had a suit that was very similar in the 70's. I didn't wear it much. I ended up preferring something with a
    less bold pattern to it. But that was my personal preference.

    Keep it if you like a bold pattern and if you are willing and can afford to go out right away and get 2-3 ties, shirts and pocket squares that really go well with it. Without the right accessories a suit like that can easily fail. But when worn properly it can be fun.

    That suit is off the fucking hook. Is that the same as the one in the B&S? I would totally wear that to work. Keep it, shorten the sleeves a little (maybe the jacket length as well) and get down.

    Is it loud?

    Yeah. That is the fucking point. If you can't piss in the weeds with the big dogs, you go home.

    Keep it.

    That's freaking awesome. Pair it with a louder TF shirt and tie and you'll be good to go. I've never seen an OTR suit fit that perfectly. Look at the back. Damn.

    Overall fits very well. Some have already pointed out the length issues which you are aware of.

    Surprised no one has pointed out the front/back balance issue yet (see pic #6, the first side view). When posing for photos, some people stand taller than they naturally do in real life. If you're standing taller than usual, this would exacerbate the balance issue.

    Sleeves are too short.

    Huh?!!

    Looks good. Not quite to my taste, but as everyone one else has said, it looks great OTR.

    All in all I think it looks great. It may look a bit exaggerated all the way around, but that *is* part of the Tom Ford aesthetic. The waist and shoulders in particular are on the fashion forward side of things, but I think you should keep it anyways.
