@Koala-T, Victor's advice is spot-on. Any other talk about "tapering" should be taken with a grain of salt. With your existing trousers, perhaps "slimlining through the thighs" is more accurate.

 

But I believe Victor is indicating you should start from scratch, and maybe even go bespoke with your next pair of trousers. They should have a high rise and be fitted with suspender buttons instead of belt loops. Minimal taper through the leg, which necessarily means a relatively wide opening at the ankle. 2" cuffs to add weight, so that those wide openings don't flap around your ankles but sit square, elongating the line of the trouser legs. 

 

A slightly more padded and extended shoulder on your jacket will allow your shoulder silhouette to balance the hips better. Avoid a nipped waist, as this combined with your wide hips will cause the jacket's quarters to flare out.

 

Extended shoulders have the effect of elongating the sleeves; if OTR, these may need to be shortened, so check the cuff button positioning and stitching to ensure that you will indeed be able to shorten said sleeves.

a pair of pants to the jacket. they should be loose in the hips and not very much taper to the ankle (I think 20-20,5 cm width at the bottom). pants should be cuffed with a width of 5 cm.
pants must be fully supported by suspenders.

shoes with rounded toe. color black or espresso.

shirt, tie and handkerchief you will pick yourself. I'm sure of it.


I'm sure this option will be very good for your physique. Good luck!

Great advice, where people have been telling him to taper his pants. They need to be loose not to emphasize his hips

 

Yep, Victor's advice all sounds right to me. Structured shoulders and less taper in the pants will help balance out the wide hips. Current fashions are not going to be flattering to his body type, so all the advice about soft shoulders and tapered pants should probably be disregarded.

Would it be rude to suggest some weight loss/body changes (via diet and exercise, not any sort of plastic surgery)?

 

Without wanting to sound like a total jackass, I think that would go much further in cutting a masculine silhouette than any sort of adjustments to a given outfit...

It has been foretold. Everything that has happened will happen again. And then again.

Excellent advice.

 

I would add on the bespoke trousers that @Koala-T should opt for double forward pleats. This will aid not only in comfort but also in silhouette.

I've worn Mandy Moore's pajama bottoms (she's 5'9 or so, so they fit) at a pajama party. She had left them at the host's house at some point (the host was close with the Roddick's).

He was no doubt complimenting you on your hairstyle

Excellent advice @Coxsackie, appreciated the read!

On a related note, I almost slipped in Ryan Adams' vomit at SXSW

Thanks for the thumbs yesterday.  I have mixed feelings about today's pants.  I like the fabric and pattern, but I may have the legs slimmed some.  The cardigan is dark green.  

 

 

More. (Click to show)

I can top that.  Schwarzenegger once hit on my girlfriend in Nordstrom's WHILE MARIA SHRIVER WAS STANDING THERE LOOKING AT HIM
