    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!

    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.

    Sleeve length could be ever so slightly short I guess.

    As has been said; not a classic suit, but good for what it is.

    Becuase you're slim and its a very narrow suit, if its too long it will look odd. part of making something slimmer is also making it fit very close and the length is part of that.

    As others have said, it's fine for the "look" you're going for.

    In my opinion, though, the waist is far too suppressed. The jacket is too short, and the pants are too tapered. Besides lacking aesthetic balance, I'd imagine this is an uncomfortable, constricting suit.

    Do you want to tell us precisely what bothers you so about the jacket sleeve length?

    What is your complaint about the shirt sleeve length and what is your complain about the jacket sleeve length?

    suit good, shoes - not so much. all wrong for those trews. u might have to go for a wider lower leg if it's a foot size/proportion issue
    well done
