"Street shots" of Mr. Gandy are usually way better than the fashion ones. I think he knows, too.

This suit appears to be the wrong size, as the belt shows. It's always important to get the right size.

When your pants are cut with a 4" rise as those appear to be, it's hard not to show belt.

Don't wear belt with vest/waistcoat, it looks off.

Frankly, if you are going to wear a 3 piece suit, it shouldn't even have belt loops. If you are going to insist on wearing a belt, the rise needs to be high enough and the vest long enough that the belt and buckle are not visible.

Anyone who does not think that is an amazing fit is probably just sour that they can't pull it off.

Hey Roger, is that an Ashton or Richard cut?
post #269 of 329

^^^ I don't recall, but it is likely neither.  This suit is several years old, and was a much more full cut than what you see here. 20 lb of weight loss made the thing hang on me like a tent, and it wasn't getting worn, so I turned my tailor loose on it - jacket shortened and taken in with some waist suppression, trousers slimmed, vest taken in, etc.  So the end result is not really any given Sameulsohn cut anymore.

 

Mr. D and MrFu - thanks very much.
