I have just had the side-seams brought in and the sleeve length reduced, but in my opinion now the sleeve look too short!

I don't think you are showing too much cuff, button stance may be a bit lower for my taste but the jacket looks pretty decent from the front, from the side it looks like you are leaning to the wardrobe on the left but doesn't look that bad; maybe a tad to tight on the sides, but I don't think anyone IRL will notice it to be like that and I may be talking complete toss. Good stuff and enjoy

Its really annoying I don't seem to have much luck with tailors, firstly they make my custom made shirt wrong and now a different tailor has made the suit a little too tight.

The whole jacket. It looks like you have 40 shoulders and 34 waist. Excessive waist suppression won't make you look slim, but make you look unbalanced.

I am 42" chest and 34" waist. I would classify myself was being slim, I didn't ask the tailor to make it this tight, I just said I need it taken in and left it for him to decide how much to bring it in by.

Yeah I think it was brought in about 2" each side when really it only needed around 1". The thing it I feel bad if I say I don't like it and make the tailor redo his work.

Does it feel tight? Because imo it doesn't really look too tight. The waist supression is maybe a bit more than would be ideal, but I don't think it looks bad.

Well its feels a little tight to be honest but not too much. The thing is I go from a 42" chest to a 34" waist to a 42" seat, I not sure if this is typical or not?

Looks a little short in the body, and a bit too tight like others have said. Note the stress lines on the chest and back.

the waist suppression is too extreme. Why? 1. the shoulders are a tad wide, which is fine, but the extreme waist overemphasizes them and makes it look a little unbalanced top to bottom. 2. See how your vents are bursting open? clearly too tight across the lower back.

Slim/fitted is good. tight is bad.

otherwise it looks nice. Enjoy!

So should I take it to get it adjusted? Do you think I should increase it be say 0.5" each seam or more?
