Hi folks - I'd appreciate some feedback on the fit of this suit. Size is 40R. I was thinking of maybe going with 40L but the tailor throught the coat length was just right with 40R.

One alteration I'm already doing is lengthening coat sleeves of the coat by 1/2 inch or so.

Hard to tell about the length. Need better pics.

Really hard to tell from the pics but it looks short. I would never want to lengthen sleeves on a new jacket. You look like you could use it in an L.

Apart from the sleeves which appear hideously short, these pictures allow no evaluation whatever - rather a waste of everyone's time.

Get someone else to take the photographs in a decent light, full body front/sides/rear, wear tie, shoes etc and then with and without the coat. It does take a little effort.
