First, I've posted images of my new suit before under another username. An old account I forgot I had which I don't use anymore.

Anyway, I've been able to take som better images of my suit and would like some critique and comments regarding the fit. Personally I think and feel it fits very well, but what do I know


The suit is from Tiger of Sweden which makes rather slim-fitted suits. It's of the rack so no MTM or anything. Jacket sleeves and trousers were made shorter but I think the jacket sleeves length could be 1 cm shorter. Sorry for not showing full body shots. The image showing the back is not the best. I had to turn around to see if I were standing correctly and that made the suits wrinkle a bit. Also if you could comments the placement of the braces.

NEVERMIND THE HAIRCUT or facial expressions












Thanks in advance...

nice
right sleeve could be a little shorter
suspenders work best when the waist is a little larger.
your pants are too tight for the suspenders unless you want them as an accessory.

(suit is OK; could use a some tidying up in a few places, but it's fine. I think the button position and the flow of the skirt below works very well for you. Shirtmaven is spot-on with the braces seeming unnecessary given the waist fit)

Shorten the sleeves. Let out the waist/seat if you;d like to wear braces with it. Otherwise, looks quite good. Oh, and switch up your knot to a four in hand.

Looks nice on you but the sleeve lenght and those wrinkles on the back that also some jackets does on me.

Thanks... I will probably take this to a tailor and get the few alterations done.

Darn, thought I could get away with it

I'm only using the braces as an accessory. Just like the look of braces. The pants holds themselves in place without being too tight. I just wonder whether I look like a douche with braces... Might be a bit too young?

I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think anyone in my circle would mind.

Looks very decent. Sleeves must be shorter though. Also, the sleeve pitch should be set back, but that's a fairly big job (not too bad) but you really want a good tailor for that.

By the way, did I mention the hair? The hair

I have wondered the same thing about braces, I am 30, but I am a banker so I think it could work. Id saw it probably depends on the profession, and where you are wearing the suit. IF you are a banker or in investment management, or an attorney you could pull them off. Working in IT or as an engineer, i think it would be odd.

Okay, I think we've been focusing enough on the hair, haha
Should have put a smiley on top... But a little late for "should have"

I'd have the back of the jacket let out a bit, but that's just me. I don't like the Tom Ford look where the back of the jacket essentially follows the curve of yourspine, but to each his own. I happen to like braces myself, and for me they're also more of an accessory, since the trousers I wear braces with tend to have side tabs. If you're wed to braces I'd have the belt loops taken off by the tailor.

Out of curiosity, do you plan on wearing this to a night club (Sorry, couldn't resist, look at the first page of threads in Men's Clothing for the reference
)
