Hello Gents,

Just bought a new suit at a good discounted price and I would like to get your opinion on regarding the fit and the coordination. Was not really sure so I just wore orange tie with it:

I find that the front looks good, may be I need to move the top closure button little bit to ease the crease, or exercise more to lose some belly ... :satisfied:




I need to alter collar and both side seams to ease the creases (red circled areas):

def need to fix the collar but cannot tell much else.. you need to release the vents to let everything lay naturally and wear the suit pants with it.. I find when you wear jeans with a jacket sometimes the jacket does not drape naturally. The front is good..you just need to adjust the closing button for a low left shoulder..However it looks like a very good find. Congrats!

I agree, that is a very nice find. Who is the maker?

You need to release the vents and then take photographs.

Thanks for your comments. Yes, I'll release the vents and re take the photo. Any suggestions for shirt and tie combo?

The shirt looks fine. Any white or light blue shirt should work fine, even with a micropattern like what you are wearing (I prefer plain white shirts personally).

You could wear a darker green tie, navy, purple to name a few to start.

It's tough to call in those close up pictures. The front looks pretty good. The back looks too tight though.

Did you get the whole suit or just a jacket?

The whole suit. Are you talking about my upper back or low back? When I wear the jacket, I feel a gentle snug and does not feel the back of the jacket is being pulled. I will take the suit to my tailor and see what he says.
