    Not a tailor but I will give a view. The jacket is quite a clean cut so not too bad in many respects as you say. However the big issue is that it is about 1.5 or even 2 inches shorter than a classic length and, as a result, the buttoning point is a little higher than it should be to flatter you best. Many SF posters (well, one or two predictable curmudgeons) will tell you to burn the suit because of this issue, but you just need to decide if you like or can tolerate the length as it cannot be altered. Your jacket length is also precisely the same as many 'modern fit' off the rack suits, so you will not stand out unduly.

    Cannot really see the trousers to comment, but it does not look as though they hang very cleanly.

    Thank you Aloysius16 for that feedback. For the jacket length I have asked them a modern fit. I'm quite happy with it but this was maybe not the best choice. For the buttoning point I asked them to lowered it, but they where pretty sure about the positionning and because it's my first suit I listened to them.

    Otherwise here are some pictures of the trousers. I'm travelling so I don't have any proper shoes, so I have take my sneakers. Any feedbacks is more than welcome again.

    ATTN: all **TAILORS**, I've been trying for months to figure out what the cause of the following issue is, to no avail from various shirtmakers all telling me something different -

    - "it's the midsection, too wide"
    - "it's the shoulder slope"
    - "it's the chest too tight"
    - "it's normal"

    Can someone please help me figure out what the **actual** cause of the following issue is? Attached are pictures of my actual shirt, and below it are other users with similar issues. The issue I'm having is **diagonal lines downwards in the midsection, appears to start from the nipples and extend downwards toward the waistline**. Please advise what the actual fix for this is? Is it the slope of the shoulders?

    Here are similar users with the same issues.

    Thanks
