    Hello guys,
    I have received a MTM suit, and received it yesterday, but I have some doubts about the fit.
    I think that there is excessive fabrics in chest area, and also I should let out some fabric in the waist area.
    What do you think?
    And is it appropriate for BB banks interviews?

    How did that get zero views?

    The fit at the shoulders is okay, and the fit on the rest of the upper torso isn't bad. The sleeves look bad, due to excess sleeve length and wrinkling, which could be a result of storage. Or maybe due to flimsy material. If the suit isn't typical wool, it probably is not appropriate for interviewing (though the color is fine). The fit at the waist and below can't be evaluated with those pictures.

    there is a collar gap, a bit loose everywhere, sleeves too long, lapels pretty narrow. I'm not sure I'd use this as an interview suit, especially not as is.

    The back of the jacket collar looks a little weird. Maybe it's not folded down / adjusted correctly when you took the picture I assume? I think it'll help if you wear a proper collared shirt or the one you plan to wear to your interview and take the picture with the jacket on again.

    better pics here guys
    My main concern are:
    1)Too much waist supression
    2)Really should decrease chest size
    3) Not sure about sleeve length
    Any suggestions appreciated.
    BTW, what do you hink about the tie, is it appropriate here?

    Regards

    To be honest, that's a really bad looking suit for an M2M order. Button stance is way too high, lapels are way too skinny, jacket is too short, the fabric looks like crap (cotton?), and you've got some major creasing below the back of your neck (can be cleaned up by a competent tailor, but shouldn't really be there to begin with). Sleeve length is the least of your problems, but yes, the jacket sleeves need to be shortened half an inch or so.

    That's my first impression on it too - a bad looking MTM suit. It llooks a size bigger for you and you look dwarfed in it.

    you should reduce the chest fabric but not add on the wasit
