    Does this suit jacket fit?

    I just got my first suit from Knot standard. and it's definitely snug, which I was expecting everything seems tailored my only concern is the white of my shirt showing below my waist button. Is this a sign that the suit is pulling too tight.

    No. The waist is far too tight.

    I agree. That looks quite a bit too snug. If it were just tailored aggressively at the waist, you might be able to get away with it (in a too-trendy #menswear look), but it's too tight throughout the torso, which is why the bottom is spread so far and the lapels look bowed. Hopefully they can let it out a bit.

    I'm just going to come out and say that it looks ridiculous. They need to do a remake. The jacket looks about two sizes two small.

    EDIT: The pants also look bad.

    If you see an "X" when you're buttoned up and standing it means it's too tight.

    Waist it too tight, jacket looks too short, buttoning position it too high, lapels are bowing, lots of shirt showing under the button. I wonder how it looks in the back. I'll bet that there is a crease above the vent.

    Here are some examples of better fit:

    The sleeve length is actually the least bad thing about the fit here.

    The jacket looks a full size too small on you in the shoulders and sleeves, and two sizes too small in the waist. Length-wise, the sleeves are only slightly too short but the torso is way too short. That, combined with the extremely high button stance, makes it look like you're wearing a woman's suit jacket to be honest.

    Sleeve length is absolutely perfect for my tastes. When a jacket's sleeves don't reveal any shirt cuff it looks like you're wearing a size too big or were too cheap to tailor them.
