And thus, the reason I've never worn a 3-pc suit -- though you can take out "bespoke" if you like. That said, of course, you can still look a little out of place and uncomfortable in an impeccably tailored suit that costs more than my... well, I don't even own a car. My girlfriend's car, certainly.

 

Honestly, I think three-piece suits look fine on heavier guys -- if the fit is right.

Whoa, if that trouser fly sprezz continues, we just might see skin soon.

Good. Your tailor and I should hang out.

It has to do with the fit, not the cut. Since the waistcoat is a tight-fitting garment, a bad fit is easy to notice. Also, the length has to be just right. Most RTW waistcoats I see are too short.

Really? The issue I tend to see is the combination of pants sitting on the hips worn with a vest, leaving acres of shirt (and belt buckle) on display. If you're wearing a vest, you should be wearing trousers which sit at the waist.

A waistcoat is actually one of the best ways to control a rogue paunch or potbelly.

Imagine how bad he would look if he were wearing his pants below his belly. This is about the tastiest lemonade you can make from those lemons.

Exactly. A properly cut (i.e. sans ultra-low-rise trousers) three-piece suit is probably the absolute best thing a more, ahem, big-boned gentleman can wear.

Waistcoats shouldn't be worn by men with big bellies? What utter, utter nonsense.

Sb - both are an issue. I see plenty of waistcoats that would show shirt no matter the trousers. Your point I well taken though.

Nothing wrong with a thicker waisted man wearing a 3pc though.

I wonder why people like their trousers slung so low on their hips. There must be a reason -- and since it's definitely not more comfortable to do so, I wonder what.

Ignorance and social convention.

Low rise and big balls.

Big bellies are a contributor. Without braces it can be hard to keep your pants up, esp if you have a belly. Also RTW makers can save money on fabric by making lower rise trousers.
