Ridiculous looking slim fit suits - Page 3

post #31 of 60

What a good thread! 

cpp: one suggestion - you should not wear "slim fit" just because you are lean and slender. I'm probably like you but as tailor I would say that slim things are for womens. You should just get normal to your size. Some slim fitting meanswear are really obsolete and would give the slim men a bad look. 

 

"And to be honest, when you've worn skinnier suits for too long, even a normal "Classic" fit suit will look like a sack on you."

 

I don't agree with you on this point - there are always compromises and a good "half way" can be found on MTM suits without being too slim and tight fitting, with a good sculptureness of the body (don't like the sack fitting too).

Right, is difficult to find this "measure compromise" on ready made suits.

I see where this is going hahahaha....sorry man if I dont dress to your liking because I have a lean body and you dont.

C'mon man, this is getting a bit embarrassing for you. We get it, you are slim and you're calling everyone else fat. Are you done yet?

But again, not knowing what his idea of "good" is, I have no context from which to make a judgment on his taste. All I know is that I don't like this kind of slim suit.

I don't think that looks too bad. It's definitely "fashion forward" but can look good if you've got the frame for it. The buttoning point doesn't look too high, lapels are not tiny and the jacket length is a tad short but not to the point it looks like a kid's jacket. Just a different aesthetic.


By comparison we have this:

Aside from the terrible haircut on that lanky bugger, the jacket buttoning point looks really high in the pic yet the jacket isn't that fitted around the waist and the front is very closed. Add what looks to be skinny, high notch lapels and short trousers and you've got a shitty look.

I agree.  He's young and thin and can pull it off.  It's not a 'business suit,' but for clubbing with his friends, it's fine.

That said....it's all about how you tailor and BUYING THE RIGHT SIZE.

 

I love Thom Browne suits, but would NEVER wear them like he puts those poor models down the runway....have seen a few folks try to wear them like that in public and they look like clowns....

 

hmm, well i actually am gay, and i wanna see a guy in 'skinny tight pants.'   :)

It has been very interesting to see the responses from all of the Style Forum members.

 

Let me be clear what I was referring to, when I started the "Slim Suit" thread.

 

To me, this style suit has the following characteristics:

 

     1. Very narrow lapels

     2. A substantially shorter jacket

     3. A high buttoning point

     4.Jacket fitted so tightly their is extreme pulling , and the front quarters open hideously

     5. Trousers with an extremely short rise, with highly tapered legs

 

This style flatters absolutely no one!!!!!

 

The quicker this ridiculous "FAD" goes away, the better.

 

As far as overweight people wearing this style suit, that is a whole different conversation.

 

The classically styled suit that is tailored correctly to the wearer, will never go out of style.

 

To those individuals who profess to have an interest in mens clothing, and do not understand

this rudimentary fact, need to go back to the basics of mens dressing before they show the

ignorance that has been reflected by some comments.

 

To the poster who suggested I was overweight, and jealous that I would look bad in this style suit...

 

I happen to be 6' 3'', weigh 205 lbs, and in excellent physical shape.

 

My taste level and knowledge in mens clothing would not allow me to dress like a clown in this style suit.

 

Hopefully this makes some people think twice when they look in the mirror.

 

Unfortunately, probably not... Sigh

I tend to think that nobody this skinny looks good in any suit, period. It's the polar opposite of a fat guy in a suit.

I think you defining what you mean by "slim suit" is very helpful to the discussion. It would be equally helpful if you defined "The classically styled suit that is tailored correctly to the wearer, will never go out of style." in a similar way. Such as, what lapel width will never go out of style, what pant rise will never go out of style, etc.

If you happen to be a beefy 6 feet tall guy, wearing a slim fit suit just makes you look silly. The point is, wear a suit that fits your body type and not get all caught up with the trends. Slim fit suits are not for everyone.

Balance looks awful. Likely from a weird, slouched-back "model" posture, which would make the jacket too short in the front, closing the quarters, making the lapels and button stance even higher than they originally were, and pooching out the waistline (which could use some supression as is). Pretty bad when all of that is visible from the front, rather than needing a profile shot.

Is the OP talking about the Thom Browne look?

If this is a "slim fit suit" that the OP refers to than he is just a cranky old man.

 

When I see old guys wearing a sack over each leg it makes me cringe. 

 

Slim fit shows off the male physique and if you have a good physique ain't nothing wrong with that.

Are we really rehashing all this stuff again?

I was waiting for someone to say I agree we could of done a search and brought up thousands of slim hating threads, but OP is 'SPECIAL' as you can see and wants his own thread.

 

sometimes it makes people feel special to make a thread.

What you just described is a suit that is one size too small NOT SLIM suits. You have the wrong name for that like I said many posts ago  knew what you were trying to get that someone is wearing a suit that is one size to small so they can try to fit into it.  Thats not slim fit thats NO FIT!!!!!
