    AJ is spot on here. 2-button suits with a lower button stance create a nice deep V in the front that serves at least 2 purposes: it accentuates most males' natural V-shape from shoulders to waist (even if a person's isn't terribly pronounced) and it shows more of the shirt/tie.


    3-button looks like you stepped off the set of Frasier in 1995. Or like you're a local weatherman.


    EDIT: @Vovan, haha it will do you well. Just focus on slim fit, lower button stance. Shoulders need to fit and it needs to be long enough. From there, most things can be worked on by a tailor.

    Happy to help out. Hopefully my advice is good. This is definitely the best way for everyone to learn about fit and what issues to look for.

    OK, I took some pics with the grey suit. Aside the pant that are a little too long, do you see anything else that is off?





    And another set:

    Pretty good. Yes - hem the pants, but also shorten the sleeves.

    Oh yeah, sleeves are too long - I forgot to say that. All of the suits I find have long sleeves.

    Is the upper button in the right place (height)?

    Yes - just above your natural waist is normal. By being 2 button instead of 3 button, the button stance is lower than before.

    Much better! This is definitely a workable suit for you.


    These are things I notice that would take this suit from its current state to perfect fit so merely things to bring up with your tailor/for you to think about:


    - Sleeves need to be shortened

    - Pants need to be hemmed (maybe go for an angled hem where it is longer in the back)

    - Slight pitch issues

    - Excess material across the back (not a tough fix)

    - Issue at the top of the thigh on the pants. Not sure the exact cause as it could be a few things.


    Again those are just things to think about and to weigh cost vs benefit.


    The next step for you is getting yourself some slim fit dress shirts.

    Vovan, hey hey. Looking good, slick. Everything that I see can be fixed by a tailor, with the possible exception of the tightness around the bottom.

    Thanks, guys! I'm off to my tailor :-)


    @AJ, slim shirts are definitely next thing on my list.


    @bruschetta, thanks! What tightness are you talking about? pants or jacket?
