Thoughts on a new suit?

Just picked up this suit on eBay last month and got it tailored by Maria at Golden Needle Tailoring here in Chicago. I think she did an awesome job but wanted to get your thoughts on the final fit. I'm 6'4" 220ish and was debating between a 44L or a 46L and went with the 44L.

The tie and pocket square didn't come out so well in the pic but the tie was silver and the ps was grayish/pink. And forgive me for needing some Static Guard on the pants. It was barely above zero on Christmas Eve.

From what I can see it does look good. You're about the same size as me except &'m 10-15lbs heavier & opted to stay with the 46L.

The collar is pulling away from your neck, but often this can just be an artifact of not putting on the jacket correctly. Recheck this.

Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

Thanks. I bulked up to about 250 earlier this summer and was wearing a 46L at the time so wasn't sure about fitting into a 44L. I've been steadily been cutting back since I ended up not liking being so big. Weighed in at 216 on NYE.

Thanks, Vox, just noticed that as well so I'll check it the next time I wear it.
