Dear all, I have just bought a new suit (again) and would once again appreciate your opinions on fit. (Trousers are unfinished) Thank you.

Before I comment any further, any chance you have scoliosis?

Why do you ask?
Because it looks like (no offence!) your pelvis is rotated backwards on the 2nd and 5th photos. Also, note the bulge around the lowest jacket button on the 1st photo.

The reason I wanted to clarify is because it might be just a matter of slouchy posture or a restrictive jacket which we can control just fine.

However, if you indeed have scoliosis or other type of abnormal spine curvature, then you might want a tailor to work on MTM jacket.

Hope this helps.

This definitely looks better than the first set of photos you posted. With the trousers being hemmed, it looks like you have a winner.

I think it looks great. The coat needs a little pressing to get rid of the crease on the right front lower. Standing in a suit for a photo for fit is far from easy. Most are hard-wired to get rigid and stand in a posture we likely never have. Put on a comedy channel and do the photos. Most will relax and posture will become normal after a laugh.
