    Needs the chest taken in and waist suppression, so both of those areas need to be taken in as much as possible. I also want to say that the shoulders look too large to me as well, and there's nothing you can do about that. Can't tell anything about the arms since there's no side profile shot, but yeah, the definitely need to be shortened. Those arm holes look awfully deep, but again, nothing you can fix, though.

    If he still has an opportunity to return & exchange for a smaller size, that would probably fix most of the issues that you're telling him to tailor. When I was training for SuitSupply, they basically told us that if tailoring cost is greater than $75, they need to either pick a different size or a different cut. I think that's a good rule of thumb, no matter where you shop.

    @Matchbook
    I had that suspicion about the shoulders, but the next size down felt awfully tight at the time. @CJMichaelRay
    Unfortunately it's too late in the game for that, but it wasn't a terribly expensive jacket, and it did well enough in a high school setting. I'll take it to the tailor and consider that rule of thumb.

    Thank you both for the thoughts, I'll keep all that in mind when I'm looking for my next one.

    EDIT: here's a quick side pic.

    It was ridiculous, but I wasn't there long enough to take advantage of it and I don't think I can talk about it on here haha

    To put it vaguely, we had to wear their stuff from head to toe (aside from watches, bracelets, and underwear), so they made sure to encourage us to always be wearing their clothes.

    I guess that makes sense. Maybe I'll go work there for a little bit, stock up on all things Suitsupply, then quit. (Mwaha hahaha, my evil plan is complete)
