It might be the slightly higher camera angle playing a bit with perspective, but the top coat buttons look to be a tad lower than usual. I like that since it doesn't quite give the "nipple effect" that I see so many other higher placements have. Same thing with the (seemingly) restrained peaks, not jumping off the shoulder and such nonsense.

Great colors, material, proportions and style regardless. Keep repeating, I'm a long way from looking half that good.

Uncle Will, explaining his cut philosophy: 'My own style is a very personal version of soft tailoring. I acquire cloth from England and have it made up there and in Hong Kong.'

The fit looks good to me. The trouser fabric is only buckling because of the awkward posture (he's leaning back with his lower body to balance the forward lean to look at his watch). I suspect that if he stood normally, it would fall cleanly. The jacket clearly fits well throughout (look at the buttoning point and you can see it couldn't possibly be tighter there, and given that, the fit naturally has to be a little looser to not make the overall jacket silhouette look weird (narrow chest, then having to get bigger across the waist, would be unflattering). I know I like a looser silhouette anyway, so I'm biased, but I do think his fit looks good by any yardstick.

 

On a different note, I have a new summer jacket in a similar colour (and with similar contrasting buttons) to the cardigan, so some of the other colours in the fit have given me some more ideas on how to wear it. I was always thinking about white shirt and pale grey trousers, but it's interesting how well the tan shoes and the very dark ?brown/?green tie go against it.

???

Again, just because something is not shrink-wrapped onto you does not mean it doesn't fit. Will looks better than all but about a half dozen posters on this board.

Horses for courses gents...

I did say not MY cup of tea...

Agree that his fit is fine in my view. Some of us simply don't have the kind of shape that allows for sculptured proportions. Someday I want to start a thread on the link between posters who get a lot of thumbs up because they have great proportions versus those who are less ideal in male body form - all things being equal. Not saying that is what is being suggested here but let's face it, clothes look better on more ideally proportioned people (male and female). The rest of us make due with trying our best to match body shape with a given clothing article.

Also - Will like to keep a LOT of things in his pockets.
