    Hi Yall,

    Could you please help me assess this Tuxedo's jacket length? Seems similar to James Bond's Skyfall. A bit too short or okay?

    I tried to wear a contrasting pants. The red lines mark the bottom hem.

    Thanks.

    Pockets and button stance seems very high as well. Might be the camera angle though?

    (Also, Skyfall was a shawl collar...)

    lapels are huge!
    and not sitting flat on your chest.

    and looks short
    and too much suppression at the waist.
    MTM or RTW?

    not good

    I like the lapels.

    Looks like fit ain't good. More photos for assessment.

    I guess my question now becomes ... how passable is the fit?

    Someone did not grow up in the 70's.

    i have seen worse.
    again.
    rtw or MTM

    needs some work in the back, but not a big deal.
    sleeves a re slightly different.
    and your left hip is a bit high, throwing off the left lower front.

    if you are looking for something super modern and stylish, that will look odd in two years, stay with it.

    it only needs a little work if you don't mind the shorter length
