That jacket looks like one of those unstructured Borrelli Linosa/Sorrento coats that Vox loves. In his love for them, he's also described how they can be a very difficult fit. See here:
I think that's what going on. The styling of that outfit is perfectly nice, but he just doesn't have the right build for that type of coat. I've actually noticed that about a number of his outfits. His styling, while not to my taste, is fine, but he's not choosing the right cut for his body, particularly those aggressively cut double-breasted suits.
He's short and muscular. He has broad shoulders and a narrow waist. He's got thick arms and legs. He's going to be a very difficult fit and just won't look great in a lot of types of cuts. I don't mean this as an insult. It's just a reality. I'm embarrassingly short and rather stocky myself, and I'm a very difficult fit too. I spent several years wearing ill-fitting coats, because I liked the looks of certain coats. It took me a few years of experimenting to realize that I need to find a cut that is appropriate for my body type.
He's got a good sense of style, because he puts together nice outfits. However, the cuts often just don't work on his body type.
No acridsheep stamp of approval?
@zbromer - thank you for that lengthy feedback! That is precisely what I'm having trouble with. 99% of the time when I'm at my tailors, I'm trying to imitate a certain style that, gathering from some people's responses, don't complement my build. I feel I'm still in the very beginnings of my "sartorial journey" and trying out different things.
Have you got any examples of better silhouettes/better fitting suits on someone of my build? or yours for that matter - you described your build closely similar to mine. It's something I'm completely aware of yet not so sure how to fix. I'm just going with trial and error.....lots of trial and error.
