    I had looked at this jacket several times online and passed. Seeing it makes me kinda regret passing at $70. I was not a fan of wearing with jeans, but really love the look alongside caramel chinos. I think you got a steal.

    @animeking - Just saw you post but thought I would comment on things I see. Honestly I think it looks good overall and I wouldn't really have anything done unless it bugged me or the alterations are free from the tailor.

    When ordering your next batch of shirts, take your watch into consideration for the cuff circumference. I can't tell much else with the shirt. Loose here and there but that helps with movement. Maybe the sleeves are billowy? Personal choice there but I wouldn't worry about it.

    As for the pants while seated, if they don't feel like the thread is about to rip out they should be fine. Even my most generous pants have the pull lines. From the back picture with the jacket on, you may be able to let the seat out to help them drape better. I think this helps with the creases near your butt.

    For the jacket, the sleeves could come up a little to show shirt cuff. I do not know the cause of this but will point it out. Near the jacket breast pocket, the lapels break ever so slightly. I have heard this is a chest issue but it looks like you have room in the chest. I have this on a jacket or two and I let it be but again, if alterations are free, I would see if they could do something. Google research should be able to point to some causes.

    Hello everyone. Got my first two blazers. Both are 40R Slim Fit. I feel like right now the only thing I don't like is the sleeve length on the navy one. Everything else I like, but I know nothing about fit so Advice?

    Photos above. S&M suit I bought a while back. Had to have it tailored twice because first tailor did a poor job with the pants. Think the fit is good now. Feel like the jacket might be slightly short as I have a long torso but I'm not sure. Overall very happy with quality of suit.

    Thoughts on fit?

    @mooseontheloose - yep - this looks good ! Sleeve length is good, nice choice in shirt for some contrast. Shoe color is great. I cant tell - since your holding the cameraphone- if the shoulders are dialed in perfectly or not ? You are roughly 5'10" ? It's a nice looking suit.

    I'm in the market for a new suit and tried out SS/Bonobos for the first time. The salespeople that I talked to at both stores recommended I size down - I'm 5'7", 125, and generally wear 36s, but SS and Bonobos recommended 32 and 34 respectively. My office is fairly conservative, so I'm a little concerned that the sizes they recommended may be too fitted/fashion forward. Would appreciate any advice (sorry for the poor picture quality).

    Bonobos (jacket/pants don't match because they only had a few items in my size in stock):

    So I am trying to upgrade my wardrobe and here are a couple new purchases I picked up on sale. J.Crew unstructured Ludlow blazer in stretch cotton-linen and JCF stretch cotton twill pants. Looking for any comments/suggestions on the fit.

    Also my first attempt at posting pics, so if anyone has tips on taking better pics to show fit please pass those along as well. Thanks.

    Not bad. Sleeves are a little long. If you show a little shirt cuff, it'll look much sharper. From the front the shoulders look a little big, but fine in the side shot. Trousers need a hem and might have a little extra in the seat, but it's hard to tell with the jacket on. The shoes are doing you no favors.

    Would you recommend sizing down on the jacket?

    It's hard to tell where your natural shoulders are. A jacket should fall exactly at your shoulders. How much room do you have in the front when it's buttoned? You have an athletic build so it might be tricky finding a jacket that fits perfectly off the rack. However, if it's a stretch jacket it's meant to be fitted close to the body, but not tight.
