Hey guys I got some new clothes for xmas I have a skinny/athletic build (big back) so shirts allways don't fit properly and I need a lot of help when it comes to that, I would REALLY appreciate getting comments from everyone and answer my specific questions:

1) Which shirt fits better in the arms the 33 or the 34? (which arm size am I)

2)Does this suit fit in the shoulders or can I go smaller? (i don't like it and I'm returning, it's from
Joesph A Bank, but I had this Zegna suit I have in mind it's smaller in the shoulders and cut so much better

3)Can these Polo Estate Custom fit shirts be tailored in a way to fit me or is the chest too big and If so should I just return them?
4) If they are ok what kind of adjustments should I go in to get done at the tailor?

5)Should I have a spread collar or classic?

6) any other suggestions would be very helpful

Quick thoughts..
Suit is big in shoulders-return/Sleeve 33 seems ok/collar is your preference esp with respect to tie knot, occasion and rest of your ensemble.

Regards.

I think the sleeve lengths are not uniform on both sleeves w.r.t. how much cuff they show (more on your right than on your left).

Secondly, it could be the pictures, but it seems a bit boxy around your waist.

Thirdly, agree with Shikar on the collar thing.

The shirt collar's points look too short.

Maybe the sleeves were just bunched up differently
