Too much of everything for me.

Belly vs No Belly, when does a suit benefit?

It is more like a style option. Either one is better than the other depends on one's liking.

However I found Mr. C example above is really ugly.

Why?

Part of that is the fabric. The checked pattern gives you way more information about his torso than most people would need.

Still A&S sometimes will overdo the lapel belly a bit. I've got a few suits that sometimes look great, and other times bug me. Whether that is pressing, weather, my posture, the state of my body fat, or what I have no idea.

Is this Simon Cromptom?

 

Why he always looks bad, nerdy and ridiculous and his attires are all unprofessionally fitted?

 

His low gorge  look pretty bad on him ( as always he commisions/shills)

 

On the contrary, the jacket on the manekin is top.

People says I never post good examples, but is simply because nowadays I hardly see a good example but all the contrary.

 

Here I found this great example of a Japanese tailor.

While below the breast pocket the jacket looks great, there's something weird going on about the shoulders/neck area. Either he has massive lats or, well, I dunno. The lap of the back of the collar seems to come down from high on the back of his neck rather than just coming forward; it makes the top of the lapels look off because they aren't laying near his shoulders but rather on his collarbone.

It's almost like the back of his jacket is riding up on his shirt or something, but it looks intentional...

I think he got a flannel DB suit from A&S. He doesn't look like Jack Armstrong in that either, but the plain cloth makes his shoulders much less obvious.

Yeesh, my shoulders are similar.

Simon has very sloped shoulders. IMO, his Edward Sexton DB suits him better than the AS cut:
