New MTM Suit, Need Some Opinions

I just got my MTM suit from indochino.com and was generally pleased with the cut and quality. Let me know what you guys think about the fit of the jacket. I was thinking about taking it into my local tailor to get some little alterations and would like to know if there is any area that I should consider.
Apparently indochino reimburses you for $25 of the alteration fee.


The two main areas I was thinking about getting altered were the shoulders and the hips. I think the shoulder pads are a little to big and creates an distorted shoulder line. Also, do you guys think I should get the hips taken in too?


Sorry for the wrinkles, but it came right out of the box and haven't had time to get it pressed.

If the shoulders don't fit, you should return it. Havin the shoulders altered by a local tailor will just ruin the whole thing. There are a bit too much material at the back. You need to take better pics for us to comment further.

it looks like it might be pulling alittle in the front. Teh back seems to have excess fabric but it probably could be fixed.

I don't know if it's just the bad picture or what but the waist supression is giving you an hour glass silhouette. Shoulders look decent to me although they don't have much life. I agree the back could be cleaned up a bit, especially near your underarms. You'll get more help with better pics. Obviously you just need to stand further away from the camera. Get it pressed too. It would be good to see the hips and the side view for the vents.

Yeah, way to much waist supression. What is it with waist supression, people seem to way overdo it. Less is more in this area IMHO.

Here are some new pictures. I think there might be some extra waist suppression looking at the front view. Any ideas on how to get rid of it? Should I ask the tailor to let out the waist or bring in the hips or both?

Seems fine from the front, the back does have a bit too much fabric. Are the pants too long? I can't really tell if they're pooling or if it's the shoes.

Shoulders do not look right and too much waist suppression makes the lower part/quarters look like a skirt.

looks good from the side!!!!
shoulders are way to wide
waist is pulle din to far.
is this another mtm on line company?
don't these tailors questions the measurments?
there is way too much suppression.
don't wate your time trying to fix this. just let the waist a little.
and start over with a smaller point to point and less padding in the shoulders.
