The shoulders are a little too built up, or perhaps this 38R runs on the large side in the shoulders. It just doesn't sit right on me though it fits right in the chest. So I'm probably returning it. I have 38Rs in inexpensive suits/jackets from others that fit better.
For the price this is a good deal, but fit is everything.

This cotton used to make this suit is a very fine quality as is the make and the finish, unfortunately the trousers are a size too small (waist measures 32" instead of 34") and the sleeves are 1" too short. Light colored cotton , unlike wool, will show the original needle holes when let out therefore tailoring is not an option.

The suit in the picture has hand stiching; the actual suit does not. Not really a big deal, but Sierra should be more careful about its photos. I wear a long, so sleeves always have to be let done; this is a problem with a cotton suit. This will be a good suit from April to September in the Philly region; sharp enough to wear to court, and cool enough for a night out .

It's a great quality Lauren suit with luxurious paisley patterned lining. However the suit I received is not as pictured as it does not have pick stitching on the labels. As others have pointed out, the sleeves seem maybe 1/4 - 1/2 inch short (which I don't mind as my arms are relatively short and no shortening required.) But the waist on the pants are definitely tight. I normally wear 32 waist, but this feels like a 30-31. Overall, a decent purchase for the great price.

The next time you have to attend a summer wedding party give your navy blazer a break and try a cotton suit. You will look good and be able to stand out without looking like Nixon at a beach party.
The suit jacket has some nice details that keep it from looking plain and the flat front slacks keep it modern. The only downside for me was that it needed a lot of attention from my tailor... sleeves, torso, waist, and length, all needed attention... So much so, that I noted it a being "too big" in the rating system. This doesn't mean that ordering a smaller size is the answer; it just means that your tailoring bill will be a little bigger than your other Ralph Lauren items.
