Maybe it appears that way because of his semi-seated/leaned position?

Weird lapel curve?

GQ had an issue a month or two ago where they featured double breasted suits worn by that actor John Cho:

I remember seeing this series and photos and thinking they gave him a jacket that was too short. Forget down to his thumb. That jacket was basically at wrist level.

Magic Johnson needs that article.

That picture is pretty ironic considering this article I just read today: In a new book, Magic Johnson accuses Isiah Thomas of questioning his sexuality http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...x.html?cnn=yes

Like the fucking plague. Just look at the vent recommendations. I notice they forgot to mention that center vents show your rear end when you put your hands in your pockets.... kind of an important detail.

Quoted for rarity, one of the few posts of 1000s where KB didn't do his usual inventory..

Incidentally, Isiah's suit might actually look decent on Magic.

"Belly" would be the technical term, I suppose. This one has it like the Buddha. Double-breasted look fine with a gentle curve:

but the extremely high gorge, combined with the belly, push the peaks nearly out of sight, making for one odd lapel.

And as for Magic Johnson, I think the GQ guide is aimed at regular sizes. What length do you buy at 6'9''?

Bear in mind it will be exaggerated by the way he's bent slightly forward at the waist. I don't think it looks too excessive...
