Court reactions to it aside, it's more than the suit sleeves. The jacket might be slightly long. The pants are much too tight and probably a little long. The belt possibly is too tight. The tie is too narrow; maybe he's stuck with that for the most part, but the color and pattern could be bolder, to draw attention away from his size. Also, for the same reason, he'd do better with a patterned shirt or possibly (if not too "Mafia") a striped suit. Compare with some other outfits he's wearing, where his poor physical fitness is downplayed.
