Wrinkles in crotch have nothing to do with cut. He was probably sitting down or something before the picture was taken.

I hate wrinkles, especially in wool, but it's inevitable that during the day at some point your clothing will wrinkle little bit. Some cloth releases wrinkles sooner than others, but when you spend a day in your clothing, it gets some wrinkles.

I...does not get wrinkles in my suits~ :nest:

They're as fresh as if I never wore them.

Actually, I hang my pants on a hanger when I get into my office and I work with no pants on. :lol:

Thanks for your feedback. 

Clag has mentioned that I go with a Formosa from NWMA. I believe I will pull the trigger if I can sell this Zegna. 

I didn't realize that my suits were slim fitting. Then again, I like fitted stuff. But with getting married and getting older, I am no longer the slim man that I used to be. 

 

Sorry man, I didn't intend to come across as being mean. The suit that the guy from BNTailors is wearing is a (too) exaggerated version of a cut that I think would work well on you. Not only the extended shoulders, but also the very open quarters. Though they may not be to everyone's taste, they do help to visually break up the hip area. In contrast, the Zegna suit you posted had closed quarters which only emphasise the width of the hip area. Conversely, if you'd go for a slightly higher lapel roll, the extra fabric up top may help to appear your chest a bit wider.

From what I've seen from Formosa, their silhouette may indeed fit the bill. And they're lovely anyway!

 

To me, slim fit doesn't necessarily mean good fit. I think a good fit should emphasise the positve aspects of the wearer's body, while visually correcting the not so positive ones.

I quite sure they will say so. lol8[1].gif

About the suit that you will sell, the shoulders looked good, I respect what you said about the color but fit was very nice.

I wished that more people told me about my fit issue. Clags was the only one. Thumbs up but no feedback made me think the suits fit fine.

I think the critiques have evolved from "does it fit and do the colors/patterns/textures work" to achieving an optimal aethestic.

We were all so focused on the combinations that we neglected the fit. As I said earlier, building a good wardrobe is a long process.

I have the same issue - the big head makes the shoulders look smaller, so the shape is important to balance.

This suit doesn't look great; Claggy's is much nicer in fit.  Over-surpressing the waist makes the chest bow, and causes that pulling around the middle, and looks like it's someone else's suit.  Slim fit isn't about being slim, it's a trendy thing like skinny lapels etc.  With a more classic cut that fits you comfortably and is shaped to you, you will never lose.  But what makes the shoulders on that guy look prominent is the marked roping - see how high up the sleeveheads are sitting.  That's a really great way of making the shoulder look extended without it looking like you're wearing your dad's.  I wish my tailor knew how to do it that well.  There's no chance of finding a roped shoulder where I live, so sooner or later I guess I'll have to get the money for a proper tailor back in Europe. Or visit Korea, apparently.  But you should look out for that as a feature.

 

P.S. Claggy also has a big head, and uneven shoulders.  But then again he's more handsome.  Some we win, some we lose.  Either way, he's got his local tailor working wonders.

The cut is very versatile from what I have seen for example, Ethan Desu is a bigger guy and it looks great on him Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The cuts (Formosa and Liverano-ish) actually look similar or is it my eyes?

I'd say the Formosa is a bit stiffer whereas Liverano/B&T seems a bit more relaxed. Different strokes for different folks, but both are world's better than the wrapped like a sausage shrunken lapel shite they sell at high end department stores.

interesting point, though that fit does not look quite as aggressive. a full pic would be nice.

+1 on roped shoulders for making shoulders look more prominent in a good way. Example: X-post from my fit from today:

I think I got pretty jealous at this guy when my wife asked me when seeing him in person, "Why can't you dress more like him?"
