It's linen and from H&M. I haven't had it tailored at all and wanted to know what you guys think should be done, if anything at all.

Thanks.

Is it pinned at the back or is that just the waist suppression?

It looks a little tight around the waist from those angles, can you take a side shot of the suit on as well?

General observations: jacket is too short, too much waist suppression, pants look decent, suit is too wrinkled.

Agreed. That jacket looks very short and look how opened up the vent is.

It's not your size - Exchange it if new, onsell if second-hand.

Jacket too small all-round (too short by at least 4-6 inches, buttons too high, too tight), and trousers looking too short although maybe you can lengthen them.

Terrible when you find something nice, but which is outside the boundaries of being "alterable". Know the feeling myself...

slim and fitted is one thing... but that jacket is way too short - look how high the pockets are, the bottom is so open I can see your belt and tie, and it's far far above your hands. It's also too tight, the single vent is bursting open becuase it's too slim and it's too high (short) so it sits on your ass.

Consider - Longer, less waist suppression, double vents.

Your arse also bulges out. You need double vents my friend.

Can I fix the problem if I shorten the vent?
