post #12451 of 12824
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.

+1. Carrying some extra weight, or being a bit pear-shaped, certainly makes it more difficult to get well-fitting clothes that look "ideal".

Ethan of The Armoury has touched on this topic a couple of times, both in a couple of posts on SF (see here, for example) and also in his blog.

"Dressing at a larger weight is a lot trickier than skinny guys realize. The proportions that get lauded on smaller builds often need to be disregarded, as trying to achieve that look would be a mistake. Just my opinion as a fat guy, but I always a rate a good big fit higher than a good thin one. once you learn the basics about where your natural waist is and how long to cut your sleeves, most slim guys can throw on a purple label suit and look the business. Gain 30kgs and it's a lot tougher."

I agree. But frankly it is hard for me to stop looking at his clothes
even though he is an interesting and witty conversationalist.
Not always exactly to my taste, but well-fitted and beautifully made.

I know he likes the more comfortable cut but it is not my cup of tea..

I agree on the trousers and have always thought so. Will and I are around the same
age and I have always been relatively " thick", but I wear much trimmer trousers
which do not look too "young" for me.

Will dresses very conspicuously. Not.

Well, he's conspicuous in that he's extremely well put-together, more than just about any other man you'd put on the street. But he's definitely not ostentatious.

Can't imagine why he chose a teal cardigan.

An Eastery pastel with an otherwise earth-toned tweedy outfit stands out for it's incongruity.

As does the pink contrast color shirt in the screenshot I provided. At least in my opinion. There is something off about this man.

still too poor to get sleeves and pants hemmed.

The burnishing on the toes of those loafers is a bit much for me.
