Fine, I will say it. Shorter pants.

Now, give Master Sensei twenty pushups!!!!! Just kidding. <---Your stance suggests you are a kung fu master.

If you are in America, your pants will still look better than 99% of the population so I wouldn't worry too much about it. But next time you order from them, show up wearing those pants and your next suit will probably fit better.

Overall, very good fit.

yea.. u have a full break.. i'm more a medium break.. personal preference

back doesn't look 'right' and you're front right (or my left) looks odd with the supression. The back pic confirms that it's the construction.

Otherwise, it looks great... seriously have the back/front right adjusted..you see all those waves? It's screwing everything up [from being really good].

Nice shoes... good luck

some will say shorter jacket sleeves

some will say shorter trousers

I agree with both.

I don't like the break on the pants. Too much break for my taste.

From the back, it looks like the right shoulder is more angular than the left...could just be the way you stand, but maybe something could be done about it.

Lots of ripples in the back too.

The cut makes the skirt look a tad more flared than I would like, but that might be a matter of personal taste.

Looks like you are turning your wrists to show cuff. Maybe the sleeves could be shortened 1/4".

From the side, it looks like the left vent is "off" somehow.

i would prefer your sleeves to be a tad shorter.

i would also say that your side vents seem very long as well.

otherwise - extremely good fit, especially on the arm pitch and arm taper!

I say it looks great,
but as said above,
sometimes too much break looks bad when moving

Not bad, not bad at all.

The trouser break, jacket length, sleeve length are overall fairly good. There are subtle differences in preference, as have been posted.

It's very well balanced also.

Any closeup of the fabric? Is it solid or patterned?

I think the button stance is a little high. An inch or a half?

From the back, the pants look like the right length, but I'd agree that they're long in front. Maybe they could be hemmed at an angle?

Looks good, I wouldn't touch the proportions, especially since you like your break that way.

Can you stand more naturally though? Plus that mirror behind you gave you what at first appeared to be a crazy double chin.

edit: kngrimm is right, the back is funky and the vent could use some work. Still, it's nothing showstopping and I still like the proportions. Don't shorten.

I am surprised that only one person has mentioned this - the back needs work. It is pulling on the right hand side; the left hand side also needs adjusting (a little too much fabric at the left back shoulder area). I would not have accepted the garment with the back like this. Button stance is fine, pants can be shortened by a little under half an inch.

Generally I like it although could do with minor tweaking.

It definitely looks good on (your) left side. The pants, look a long and hence little sloppy. One of my pet peeves unfortunately. No one will notice the rest of the suit if the pants are the correct length. I think its a psychological thing.
