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.

Court reactions aside? Hell, that's the ONLY sartorial concern this guy should have -- not "what the guys at SF will think". For anyone on trial for anything connected to mob activity, I think cultivating the appearance of not knowing or caring much about clothing is probably a damn good idea... (from his perspective, of course -- as one of "The People", I think he should dress like the goodfella scum that he is and face the Puccini).

Must say I'm learning stuff from this MIC guy!

So "poor physical fitness" indicates a better image than, say, "fat as a f'ing house"?

And remember to always have a tie dimple...

You have a point, but decent fit alone won't get a person labelled stylish (or "too stylish"). His clothes look of very average make, nothing that would make him appear to have more money than retired legitimate police officers normally do. Maybe he could leave the sleeves too long to help give an "appearance of not knowing or caring much about clothing." But be nice to average Joe viewers and fix the rest, which they do notice in aggregate.

Yo, dude. You can't be that ... Don't you realize that the guy is going to prison for the rest of his life ... which will probably be rather short because he's gonna get wacked by one or more of the hundreds he helped put there. Do you really think he gives a damn what Average Joe Viewiers think of the clothes he's wearing? He's walking dead.
