You are beyond annoying.

That makes no difference whatever.

That probably will make MTM / bespoke necessary for you since your are training your body out of the standard proportions used for the suit patterns of manufacturers.

Indeed, i have found a few brands a can work around with just a few alterations, but MTM is the best choice to get the best fit.

Sunglasses could stand to be a little bigger, with more bling. Would make it more pimptastic

Excuse me, with all due respect.

The new modern cut of Levi's 501 (straight leg) got STUCK on my calves!

When I buy Italian jeans with the classical cut they fit.

speaking about standard proportioned men is quite over the top; we all know how Greek statues look like and that was 3.000 years ago. What is getting promoted here ("fashion" industry)? chickens? anorexic two legged aliens?

That is why the ancient Greeks and Romans opted for Togas ...

Seriously: If someone specifically trains body parts, e.g. arms to become more muscular than average joe, then it is a question of time until when suit patterns made for average joe will no longer do the trick. It seems that he has reached that limit with his Polo Ralph Lauren suit, which are not super skinny (I own one myself and I am certainly not at risk of anorexia).

What on earth is a "grampa" suit?

3000 years ago Greek statues looked like this.

 


I'm guessing you mean classic greek statuary. If so you must certainly understand that it was an idealized image of man. That isn't to say that there were no men who looked fit and muscular in Greece, however you can't possibly believe that all Greeks went around looking like that. If you are a remarkable physical specimen then good on you, I have nothing but admiration for that. However, much like being very fat and very tall and thin, there comes a point when you must accept that most OTR clothing, which is usually made to fit the most general of body types, is not going to be right for you.
