Some good will come out of this thread, even if all it does is make us (well me actually) realize that much of our clothing is too big. I now realize that the suits I thought were good, are in fact way too baggy. The shoulders are spot on, but the cloth then drops straight down each side, with no contouring whatsoever.
Because of all the fuss on this thread, I tried on an Ozwald Boateng jacket yesterday. I wanted to see how the other end of the spectrum looked. In fact it fitted fantastically well, and tapered in all the right places. For the first time ever, I was able to see sunlight between inner arm and trunk. The arms were higher than I'm used to, but felt comfortable.
After all the reading on SF the penny hadn't dropped, until now. Put another way: when wearing an over-sized suit I look like Russian Mafia; with a closer fitting suit I look kinda dainty (cute really).
Just for laughs, here's an example of my over-sizing with an Aero FQHH coat. I sold it and had rebuilt. Wish I had a suit pic to post, but I don't. Laugh away
