Besides the pants having too much break, I can't really comment on the suit per se because of the limited side view. I don't know if it's an "artifact of motion" but the top of the sleeve doesn't look great to me.

Shirt cuffs look too big/long and appear to be both loose and too far down the hand.

WTF is going on with the open shirt? Unlike some here, I'm okay with the suit and no tie look (although I don't think that fits with a 3-piece) but that shirt has at least 1 too many buttons undone.

excluding the fact that too little buttons are buttoned, what about the shoulders/lapels/ waist suppression/ length of coat, shoes, style of lapel, color of suit etc

Here's what I think,

- Pants look too wide on the lower parts, alteration advised.
- Jacket looks very slim and from that photo it looks too small. As does the waistcoat. Need better photos, buttoned jacket.
- Jacket sleeves a tad to tight.
- Shirt sleeves too long and wide (based on the left arm).

Thats what I think. Take a couple of new pics with a buttoned shirt and jacket. It would make it a lot easier.

not a bad look, based on the fact that he's moving his luggage, i'm thinking thats why he has taken his bowtie or necktie off.

Very Tom Ford/YSL esque.

No thoughts on fit, color, presentation . . .

If you're "feeling it" in this get up (as Mr. Ford does), then
to ya from me.

looked like it, then i noticed there is no Satin lapels and 2 buttons so i could be wrong.

The buttons look covered from here.

3-peice, black, formal shirt....kinda looking like he left his bowtie in his luggage.
