    Hey SF!

    Got my first suit done. I feel there's problem with my shirt sleeve length as well as the jacket sleeve length. For the pants, I wanted no break but it seems like there's still one. Constructive feedback greatly appreciated!

    looks good, for the look you're going for... otherwise I think it's 1-2 inches too short in the jacket body. pant break is fine.

    Yeah, looks good for a slim "modern" suit. Stand up straight!

    What problem do you think there is? They look about right to me.

    Dreadful looking high fashion garment. This will last five minutes in fashion and will then be replaced by some other figment of a manufacturers imagination designed to generate sales.

    Can you not take it back?

    you can't delete a post.

    Also this suit fails the 'rule of thumb' and is very short, it falls at wrists, and thats like 3 inches at minimum of shortness.

    Otherwise it looks decent.

    You may need a longer jacket and fuller pants.

    +1 and sleeve length is fine. Hard to say anything more; you really have to stand up straight.

    Sorry about the slouching guys! gonna retake some photos. I'm still really bothered about the jacket sleeve length! Suit doesn't look as good as it is on the photos. Jacket length was intently shorter.
