looking for feedback on the fit of this suit. I love it but am a little concerned on the shoulders. are they just "strong" or really too big?

Button the coat and ask a friend or family member to take a photo. Front and back.

they are strong and a touch wide but these pictures are terrible to form a judgement from

Shoulders look a mite wide but it's hard to tell with such crappy pictures. Clean your mirror and/or get a better camera and/or fill the (vertical) frame, we don't need to see the bathroom left and right of you. Even with clear pictures, overall fit is impossible to judge when a) the jacket isn't buttoned up properly and b) you have one arm up taking pictures.

It's very hard to tell from those pictures. Also would like to see the jacket buttoned up. But it does look like the shoulders might be a little large.

Yawn, terrible photographs. Have someone take them for you in a decent light and take your hands out of your pockets when they do. Full length views are not, not just shin length.

Then come back, if you must.

Surely there are enough of these threads for people to compare their clothes against others and work out the weak points.

From afar I think the fit's right, but it would be better if you have a closer shot that shows the details of the suit.
