I like it, the lines on the jacket look very clean, though I'd say the sleeves are a tad too long (or the shirt sleeves a little too short, it's hard to tell) and the same with the trousers.

Didn't you want it tapered in a bit at your sides?

Then again, I'm new here, what do I know

I like the trousers, though they're long. The jacket looks very, very stiff and as others have pointed out, there is zero waist suppression. The extremely closed quarters and the relatively sharp corners at the quarters don't help and leave a lot to be desired, IMHO. That said, the stitching looks pretty nice in the closeups. What's with the horizontal seam between the 1st and 2nd buttonholes on the inside of the jacket front, though?

That is a step in the right direction: fusing is the devil. If it is truly bespoke, then you should correct your sleeve measurements and get working cuffs. The other thing, as has been stated, is the need for more waist supression. Still, not a bad start.

Looks Good Monsieur M.

I like the linning, pants I agree are a little long, everything else can be adjusted after a few wearings....

The boxyness can be because of how you are standing, my brown suit from Mr. D has got all the curves.

If you want to be like Grof R... then remove Mr. D's label, it offends the bourgois in me..

Doubt the way he is standing can make it look that boxy. The skirt is cut almost square across ...

trousers:
too tight in the seat/hips.
shorten the bottoms, too much break.

jacket:
bring in the waist line a little.
the quarters need to be opened.
sleeves are just fine, the shirt sleeves are too short.

vest:
ok

the picture of the collar shows very fine hand work.

What should I say? The suit seems to have the same problems as the last one you´ve ordered and is probably from the same tailor. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=67672 The pants are slightly narrower on the recent one, which is a good thing, IMO.

Overall it seems a nice garment that requires some attention to detail. After all, you are paying for detail work when you pay for bespoke.

If the fellow makes another suit for you in the future, you might request a separate pocket to be cut for your pen. The lining is certainly rather unusual. However, the big detail that troubles me is the apparent seam where none belongs.

What is that, anyway?

full canvas:
evidently the amount of cloth was too short to allow the facing to be cut in one piece. vest facings are normally cut that way. it would not bother me.
