Gee, I don't know... I mean that's so different from normal human proportions it's tough to say. Maybe like this?

It was too easy.

Seriously though, if I were looking for examples I would search for images of "well-dressed" professional athletes, probably football players (QB's, tight ends, linebackers, maybe even a few receivers would probably meet your criteria). I have no idea which, if any, NFL players would be considered "well-dressed" by SF rather than popular standards however.

What makes you say that?

Honestly I don't really understand why fitting a certain body type is so conceptually difficult that someone needs a picture in order to imagine how it could/should work. The fit problems with Gronkowski's suit are the same as the average American male buying OTR at Men's Wearhouse. Jacket too big all around, sleeves too long, pants too baggy and sitting too far below natural waist, too much break, etc. It's not like he's missing a limb and therefore can't follow traditional tailoring concepts.

But fine, since you asked, here's Larry Fitzgerald doing it better:



He's probably at the thinner end of your stated range, but I don't think an extra 5-10 pounds would make such a huge difference as to render this picture useless.

Larry's suit seems to be a little snug around the quads (which i like). I don't know if that look is considered modern or if the suit is simple being complimentary of his physique, but it seems like some of the more traditional folks on this forum might think the pants are too tight

Unfortunately I can't really comment further without exceeding my own knowledge and experience. Whether Larry is doing it "right" or not I can't say. I just know that he is doing it "better".

I read it, and then it loaded. A lot of comedy is timing, and the load time took care of that. I completely cracked up.

But yeah...I wouldn't want to fight the OP.

Just noticed the OP was a Quaker. And I am a Quaker. It would be the most dull fight ever. We'd probably just stare at each other a fume.

EDIT: Back to not wanting to fight him. He's UPenn (Quaker) and I was raised a Quaker (the religion).
