Hard to tell without a closer shot but appears to be a good looking suit to me.

Yes, it's a EU/IT46.
I've got a gray wool/linen London model, which fits great after some proper tailoring. I love the lower button stance on the London, as I feel most other suits at SS have a too high button stance. I wonder why they don't sell more of them? At the moment they only have a plain navy London available.
It would need to be let out at the waist. If you lengthen the sleeves will the space between the end and the buttons look wonky? Is this a R or L?
It's an R, and regarding the arm, I'm not sure to be honest. I'm thinking of lengthening it almost 2-3cm, and that could make it look very odd. Of course I could add another button, but still...
Why do you think it needs to be let out in the waist? I have the body of a tennis payer, and have a very prominent seat. My lower back is very, very deep, which causes most jackets to hang like a tent. I haven't cut the threads in the back yet, which might make the back look a little different.
Look at the profile shot, the back isn't hanging straight. Could be that the waist is too tight pulling above the vents.
Went today and tried on the light grey soho, great fit. So very tempted even though I really should probably be getting single-breasted right now.
It's that or MTM since they've few interesting charcoal/mid-grey fabrics this season and I'm looking out for a nailshead. Their only birdseye OTR suits are in the Sienna which I'm not a fan of.
Yea, that's a common issue on most garments for me. I usually chalk it up to the deep curvature of my lower back, http://cdn.styleforum.net/3/3d/3df90dda_DSC_3788.jpeg . Personally I would rather consider Removing what I believed was excess cloth there, but you think I should let it out instead? I really don't know much about this, so if you think so I'll propose that to my tailor.
You have lordosis, which can be corrected through stretching & exercise. I think this would be a better long term fix & allow you to achieve a better fit OTR in the future. Just my 2c though!
I must admit it does seem a close fit. I guess I'll have to work a bit harder on the Roman chair at the gym from now on, and be a bit more conscious about it. Thanks! Do you have any suggestion as to how to make the jacket fit better now as well perhaps?
I just received my London suit today in a cardboard coffin. I was really excited to try it on, so I did. First impressions - the fabric quality is outstanding. This is my first half-canvassed suit and I like it. The dress-shirt I ordered as well - great quality in the construction; and it's a real slim-fit. Not too slim, and not baggy. Just right.
However, when I tried on the suit, I noticed the sleeves were too long and that broke my heart because now I'll have to return this. When I began to take off the suit, I noticed another problem... The stitching on the sleeves was shoddy. By paying sub-$500 for a suit, I would expect better stitching. This was a problem on both sleeves (last picture).
The minimally padded and structured shoulders were great. Other than the sleeves, can anyone help me pin-point exactly what's wrong with the suit? Please forgive me on the badly tied tie.
Don't know about the stitching. Never noticed that on any of my Suitsupply suits. Anyway, it is very hard to see that those sleeves are too long. But the pockets seem to be misaligned ? Overall, the fit isn't as bad as you think.
The sleeves look ok to me. Maybe they could come up slightly, but there is plenty of room before you run into issues with the buttonholes
Anyone had a chance to go to the store in Atlanta?
One of your arms is showing shirt cuff and you think that the jacket sleeve is too long? hmm
I wonder if the misalignment is due to his lower right shoulder.
I haven't noticed any construction issues in my 2 suits and 2 jackets. When you mass produce something is bound to get through QC from time to time.
