    I think my suit in general maybe too tight. What you think?

    Also which choice of tie? This is for a wedding banquet

    UPDATE 1: added this new black suit. never worn, pants not hemmed yet. This one is looser.

    UPDATE 2: added teal tie

    From a beginner's perspective, I like the first tie.

    I won't comment on the jacket as others here are more qualified to do so. Feel there may be something funky going on with the shoulders but that might be the way you're standing.

    However, will say that trousers are too long and/or worn too low, but this is an easy fix. They may be a bit loose in the lower leg too but until you get them shortened and/or cinch them up on your waist a bit it's difficult to tell.

    Would suggest you leave the bottom button of the jacket undone.

    I mean no offense but...do you have any other ties? Green or blue would look great with that shade of grey especially if it's a summer wedding.

    It's a little wide in the shoulders. It feels tight because you buttoned the bottom button, which you shouldn't do. I like the wider gray tie better.

    Don't button the bottom button, it's adding to the tightness and you're not supposed to button it in general.

    Could be looser, but it's also cut pretty short so perhaps the designer wanted it that way.

    This. Not too tight--unbutton the bottom button. Don't wear the skinny tie. Shoulders of the suit are a bit too wide, but it's fine overall.

    Are you sagging those pants, or is that as high as the trousers go? [​IMG]

    those pants are actually as high as they go. they're low cut pants. The suit was slim and low cut from H&M. My nuts are tight.

    The new suit is much worse since it makes you look like a giant rectangle. Also try to get some more light in your murdertorium. The first suit wasn't too tight. You just had all the buttons buttoned. Suits aren't shaped to do that anymore. That's what the pinching and folding was about.

    Agreed that the black suit is not as nice as the gray; it actually makes you look like you've gained weight. The shoulders on the gray do look a little odd; but I've seen another poster who had a similar problem with his sport coat and was able to get that fixed by his tailor. I think that if you bring it to a good tailor to have a look at it (eg the pant length), it should look fine and, hopefully, your nuts will be more comfortable.

    I like the gray tie the best, followed by the red and then the black. But, no offense, I would personally look for something different as well; I think Spong's suggestions of blue or green would work nicely.

    Even if you unbuttoned the bottom one, it still looks like the jacket is pulling a *little* bit but no big deal. I think you look better with the jacket unbuttoned (just tie your tie a little longer, and use the grey one).

    first jacket is waaaayyyy too long(hence a 3 button.)
    also...PLEASE take your wallet(or whatever it is) out of your front left pant pocket. matter of fact, if it is a wallet, get a new one and get rid of all those receitps/crap/condoms/library cards/etc in the old one. get a slim wallet and carry it in the inside pocket of your jacket. time to ditch the old bulky fording wallet that you also carry $14 in singles in it!

    Grey suit. Black slim tie. Button only the top button.

    Yeah, that black suit is not what you want. Stick with the grey one. And for goodness' sake, quit buttoning the bottom button.
