lot of suiting experts over here in SWD, eh. only thing i don't like about SVB's suit is the relative bagginess of the pants. and, as a personal preference, the slightly longishness of the jacket (which is probly the right length)...shoes aren't gunboats anymore, which is good! arms seem short, too Edited by BreezyBirch - 6/12/12 at 11:26pm
TBH I just think the extra thigh material throws the proportions off. SVB is a slim and tall dude. How the seat area looks of the pants does not do his fit justice. Top looks fine aside from the flat tie but I believe that is more of a stylistic point rather than actual outfit critique.
More so, I would like one of the SW&D in-house experts on suiting to tell me and SVB (maybe he knows) why trousers always fall so wrinkled on the shoes. Is it the weight of the fabric more, or just the inseam length? Or pehaps both characteristics are of influence. To add, if you look at the side profile, you may see that the pants actually drape pretty nicely. It seems that always from the front POV, you will notice more how the hem falls on the shoes or slightly off center causing bunching and wrinkling up the shin. I hate that so much, but majority of MC'ers seem to have perfected their individual cut / favorite length.
Circumference (width) or taper of the pants should also effect the way pants fall on shoes as the more extreme tapers require a shorter inseam. ugh
stanley, you know I like your style, but that suit is just kinda wonky. I think some of you guys would be better off checking out the nicer rtw suit brands. there are a bunch (polo, zegna, caruso, etc. for mc style. jil sander, prada, black fleece, etc. for designer) that look good right off the peg without the need for extensive alterations or 7 fittings.
