I'm not sure if you've mentioned it before, but what tailor do you use?
Thank you for asking. My tailor is Gianni Lovadina:

He travels to The Netherlands

Since I’ve got my pattern down now I ordered this suit straight to finish with our tailoring shop. The only tweak needed at the final (and only needed) fitting was moving the buttons out by one cm.

Dear @Molvin90,

Welcome to the forum!

I find this fabric quite interesting, thus I have to ask you some details about it: brand, exact composition (100% linen, or linen-mix), weight.

Since this was your first fitting, I am concerned about the alignment of the plaid. To be more specific, the plaid of the PoW has to be matched between the torso and the sleeves, "creating" in a way a continuum. From your fitting pictures - and I am quite certain that it is not a matter of the angle - it seems that this does not exist, however your tailor may be able to fix it. If I were you, I would at least discuss it with him.

I shall be waiting for your answers on the above questions, and I wish you to enjoy your SC in health!

Best,

Dimitris

Good Afternoon,

It’s 100% linen from Harrison and i believe it’s 330g
And about the pattern matching on sleeve, i have already enquired it with the tailor. It wont happen on the actual jacket because he will align the pattern on the jacket when attaching the sleeve

Thank you for your attention!

Personally I think the curve along the side looks a little to dramatic, so I would let out the waist a bit. Of course, this is preference. Also a bit short.

Suit jacket must cover bum!!!
It’s actually already on the right length on the back, seen from the second photo’s glass reflection and the back photo
The tailor told me i have long upper body and hands, thats why the looks short compared to the real proportion
I asked to lengthen the front for 2 cm

Biggest concern I see is how low the jacket collar sits at the center back seam in relation to the shirt collar.
It's a trim jacket and looks good otherwise. Would lengthen the fronts from the top as suggested. It's up the the owner how trim he wants the chest and the button can be lowered as us31 suggested.
So much changes after the 1st fitting and nothing you see in this fitting is permanent at this point.
