i've never worn this suit even though the (margiela) SA assured me it looked ok- the fit is just too far out of my tailored comfort zone. but one of parker's recent posts inspired me to embrace the slouch...

The styling of the suit is too aggressive and tailored to be worn sloppy and it looks tight over the hips

I think that looks really good... don't like it with the sneakers though

It's not really about chosing 'slouch', more that the jacket and trousers are both slightly too long for this kind of cut. You can get both fixed fairly easily. Not sure about the fit of the upper part of the trousers as we can't see them very well.

What an odd cut. Aggressive and structured but slouchy at the same time. Leaning toward liking it, but I want to see that fit with boots or casual shoes (not sneakers) before I make a final judgment.

thanks for comments, it is a strange cut: the top half is fairly structured while the trousers are low waisted and fall straight to a wide hem, so they can't really help but be sloppy. i tried to get my tailor to taper them a bit but he refused, saying it was so obviously the intention of the maker that it was pointless trying to alter them.

That's how it's supposed to look.  It looks kinda weird because it needs to be ironed / it's hard to distinguish good sloppy from bad sloppy in shitty pics.

Finally, the perfect cut of suit to wear without a shirt.

I wonder if MMM will overnight it in time for my male stripper gig on saturday.

Still makes me want to see those pants hemmed.

I dig the general concept-- it's close to the way Margiela styles many of its own looks (oops, King Julian beat me to it)

Def try it with derbies/boots. If it still looks weird I'd think about hemming the pants. Also, as per Teger's comment, how's it fit in the back? Are the vents splitting at all? Cause that would mean Game Over Instant Return confused.gif

There are significant issues with the way that jacket fits though, but I know this tends to be a low-priority concern here so I'm not going to go all MC on you guys

I have a feeling I know what you're referring to, but spit it out anyway! I'm curious
