These pictures are a bit grainy, but hopefully they're enough to get some constructive feedback:
Thanks in advance! (And no, Dad, I won't cut my hair.) - K

Sleeves are too long, but other than that, it looks OK in a CBD kind of way.

It looks good to me, too.

In the land of more finicky thoughts, I'd raise the buttons a bit, maybe an inch higher- imagine putting the top button where the lapels now cross. Same with the pockets- they are an inch or two lower than I'd put them, which is riding on the hip. It's almost like it is a bit long, but the hem is where your fingers curl so that isn't it. The shoulders and lapels, on the other hand, just look good.

So yeah, I like it. Keep the hair. Don't go CBD, the other CBD, Conservative Business Dress.

looks solid. You could trim the sleeves a bit but they're more then acceptable as is. Body might be an inch long but still, fine.

would like to see a closed jacket picture to see how the chest lies and a back show to see if it needs work.

By "closed jacket" do you mean something different from the second picture? For the back picture, I'll see if I can get someone to snap that photo for me. I was thinking the jacket was a tad long, because I feel I look shorter when I put it on, and I don't think that should happen.

Closed jacket means it would give us a better idea of fit to see the top button done.

The jacket fits you very well, you can shorten the sleeve an inch or so. The pants on the other hands, are big.

Looks good at the shoulders -- the buttoned shot , looks like a good fit w/ room to move --- sleeves a pinch long ---
The side shot appears to me, although I can't get a real good look at it forom the shot, as though you have a bit of roll at the collar ( rear ). I also have fairly square accross shoulders and get this fixed. Getting it done right, where they open up collar and shoulder seams, to tuck in, runs me $45 in my area. But it makes a big difference in appearence from rear. most important -- go to a good tailor and not an alterations place, and never to alterations at a cleaners.

oops, yep that's the one. I didn't see that pic.

a back shot (timer?) will help as well.

basically overall looks solid. A little sleeve shortening and maybe a few other tweeks will get it looking even better.
