    Shoulders too big for you which is very expensive to fix and might not even be possible, the armholes look extremely low which makes it look bad, the jacket barely has any shape to it. You want some curves on your jackets, with the lapels, and the waist area. This one is pretty much just a big box. I would recommend taking a look at some MC threads like the 'recent non-sartorialist looks' one. There you'll get some ideas about how a suit should look. I would return that one if possible.

    Also, you'd benefit from smaller, more shaped tie knots with dimples or something, as well as a shirt collar that has a wider spread so the tips of the collar are hidden under the jackets lapels.


    Thanks for all the detail. I understand the "tailor can't do it" shoulders comment--I've read a lot of the tailoring talk here.

    I don't think the armholes are terribly low at all, but I'll examine.

    The shapelessness is just weird because it's the most form-fitting jacket I've found; I'm wondering if A. it's because my suits have previously not been any good, so by comparison, to me, it's way better (but still not good enough for styleforum,) B. that I'm built like a stick so I have no shape to give it or C. these pictures are all angles/poses that conceal some of the curve. I'll look into it.

    Yeah, this was not my best tie-knotting day. I can do better. the shirt: I need more spread collar shirts. the collar did rest under the lapels when I put it on--see pic 2 for proof that it'll do it. They just didn't stay there, which is probably the fault of the jacket. Putting my hand in my pocket moved my shoulder, which jacked up the lapel area so it didn't cover it anymore.

    tell me you didn't go out in public with the cuffs like that?

    they look good from this angle/distance though. get them hemmed up proper.
