Agreed, but I am talking about that too tight god awful size too small stuff I wore.

For review:

Tight ≠ good fit.

Baggy ≠ good fit.

Properly sized sack coat = good fit, even if one's not a fan of the silhouette.

An Englishman walks into a French men's boutique. The Frenchman is wearing a fashionably cut "modern" coat and trousers, while the Brit's wearing a traditionally cut suit.

The Frenchman sneers and says: "What are you wearing? You've not any sense of fashion at all! Look at how baggy your suit is cut, compared to my modern fit. You look impossibly out of date!"

The Brit, stoically, retorts "Well, monsieur, I can alter the silhouette of my suit, if I care to. But you can't make that suit fit you," and leaves.

There is a middle ground right? Many "traditional" suits are to baggy, imo.

There's a vast expanse of middle ground between "too tight" and "too big".

PG's fit is in no way related to the too tight fits seen here recently.

Trouser drape could be cleaner, but that's heavy nit picking. This looks good and is not tight at all...

I thought I heard someone banging around out there. Figured it was those damned neighbor kids again.
