I'm sitting at a profiled monitor looking at your image. To me it
looks, very much, as expected with regards to the supplied histogram.

Now, what can one do with that information?

Thinking about it, anyone having a color managed working environment
will see the image as one can expect it to look. If you find that the
print looks darker than seen on your monitor, well, then it is
printed darker.

I was in fact referring to the printed image looking darker than the digital image on my monitor - it's hard to take a picture of the printed image and display the comparison online. It's one of those things that just needs to be seen in person, I guess.

I understand that in order to fix the problem I can simply boost the exposure by 0.5EV before sending it in for a print - but then color channels start to clip, the highlights clip, etc., and it wasn't as I intended to display the image. There's got to be a way within Lightroom to use ICC profiles (which I have), but I just don't know how to do it. More research...

If you ask if the image is dark we are talking about personal
preferences and mine is that I would try to brighten up the
highlights and darken the black suit. Contrast has a huge impact on
how we perceive an image.

Maybe I don't understand your question fully, or what you want to
achieve here.
