    Hi!
    I am about to buy my first suit. I yesterday went to the store, tried different fits on for an hour, and came out with this Boss suit. I really couldn't decide between this one, with a more classic fit, and another "Hugo" suit with a more slim fit. Now, being home with my new suit, I've started to wonder about the size, if it might be too big. What do you think?

    The main problem I had with the "Hugo" one, was that the pants were very tight.

    The reason for buying this particular brand is that I can get a good discount through my relatives.

    I would say this is pretty damn good for a beginner, jacket fits very nicely as well as the pants.

    It's obvious that you are wrong.
    That jacket does not fit in the chest and waist at all.

    Also the picture is really bad so judging anything would be difficult.

    Jacket is also short, or that he is wearing his pants really low.

    Sleeve length and shoulder are good.

    Any back pictures?

    How much is the suit? If it's under $300, it's perfect.

    Too much pull when buttoned. Otherwise perfect. Close, but no cigar.
    Perhaps try another suit with buttons a bit higher up or a 3 roll 2.

    I don't think the suit length is too long. We have to remember, this guy looks like he's young. Let him wear a young man's suit.

    I touch less pull in the waist, and the pants are a bit strange, they seem to be drooping. Maybe he's wearing them like a pair of jeans too low waisted?

    Weird pulling in the front. Take the label off the left sleeve. Shoulder and arm length OK.
    The pants look weird but that might be your stance.

    Can't really say for the rest, I'm not there yet.

    Thanks for your critique! In the end, I went for the more slimmer one!

    I only see one picture posted but the pulling at the waist needs to be addressed and pull up your pants. Start doing squats and wear your pants in a way to accentuate your ass not drown it out.

    Otherwise, it's good =)
