A tailor isn't very expensive, and it makes a big difference. Nice suit.

Yeah, gotta get some shoes and all that. This is my first suit and, from what I understand, it's a very nice one. I'll definitely get the suit tailored. It too nice not to.

Get the sleeves taken up for sure, and always keep the top button done but never the bottom!

Shoulders look OK, but think twice about the black shirt.

If this is for your funeral, just buy the jacket and have them leave the bottom half of the casket closed.

I am too sexy for my suit, too sexy for my suit...

Looks nice, I personally agree with Thoreau though.

yes, and yes. It really is a good cut on you

when you go for the sleeves, make sure you wear a shirt that has sleeves the right length. With your arms at your sides the shirt sleeves should rest right around where the base of the thumb is (the bump that starts at the heel of your hand). Most guys wear shirt sleeves too short.

Then, have the tailor measure to shorten the jacket so you have about 1/2 an inch of shirt showing with your arms at your sides. I've had tailors fight me on this but go watch a cary grant film or two and you'll see what I mean.
