Thought you guys would appreciate this. It had 42 repins and was top 'pin' of the day in men's style on Pinterest. If he just had some fuschia and black herringbone in there he'd be set.

Great look if hes 20lbs lighter.  Otherwise he will benefit much more from full cut pants which will balance and anchor with his heavy upper body mass.

 

skinny people can tolerate slim/tapered pants.  grown/fat men needs fuller cut pants for balance.

I don't think he looks that fat, good shape.

not fat by any means, but he is in a good athletic shape.

Fat?  He's like most men today who train consistently -- somewhat muscular.

+ 1, if the way to wear without socks this is the way to do it. But not everyone agrees with me.

the guy is not fat. it's just that the proportions are wonky. wide lapels, big poofed-out necktie, tall collar with long points all make him look big up top ... and the peg leg pants make him look small below. I'm all for a slim suit, but the jacket should also be slim. ie. narrow lapels, narrow sleeves, smaller shirt collar, narrow tie, etc.

Sockless is fine for casual dress. This is a way too formal look for it imo.

God, I wish I could wear a suit cut so close to the body.
For me it would require major surgery.

This is correct, IMHO. If his suit was cut properly, no-one even be commenting negatively on his body shape. That is one of the main purposes of tailoring.

In general I agree with this statement; however, in this particular case I think the cut of the trousers is fine. I agree, though, he needs some socks and slightly longer pants.

great suit, but somehow the silhouette gives an impression of a protruding belly...
