I'm afraid not all of these are well done. Some of 'em are not even medium rare..

Could not agree more.

 

Especially that god awful pink seersucker...and all of them that are cut so tight. It looks terrible.

All of those are too tight around the chest.

I think these guys are always featured on the Articles of Style website. In general, all those Article of Style people, particularly the guy in the first two pictures, look atrocious in their clothing. He tries so hard to show off his frame but it makes him look like a woman. Slim waist and a jacket that shows his ass.

In general, I think the last few pages have highlighted an exceptional amount of terrible, really terrible sartorial choices which have been executed poorly as well. There is a line that I thought was well defined between classic menswear and costuming. Many of these pictures zoomed past that line quite some time ago...

Time for rectification.

i would say avoid DB at all costs. not flattering with many body types. i would recommend 2 button classic suits. notch lapel and slim fit. they can be used for all occasions and events work/ formal. just my thoughts...

I wonder if they said this about Nutter/Sexton's designs back in the 70's? FWIW, you guys did ask for modern/contemporary double breasted suits.
