This reminds me of the Star Trek episode where the Enterprise's computer becomes evil, and Spock tells it to compute pi to the last digit in order to keep it distracted while they attempted to subvert it.

Your trapezius and arms muscles are over developed as compared to your deloids thus giving you a greater angle from your neck to your deltoid. This is what is causing the shoulders to fit so poorly. The waist supression only accentuates this as it forces the shoulder of the suit to it's maximum extension, exacerbating the fact that there is nothing there to provide support to the sleeve of the jacket. This may also not be a fault of your workout regimen, your body may just be built that way, I don't know for sure but the current fit of this suit makes you look that way.

Lets examine the TF model you constantly point too (which indicates you want to look like him, despite your protests to the contrary, but I digress...)

Note here that on the right shoulder of his suit you see the exact same crinkle problem that your suit seems to be experiencing, albeit to a lesser degree. My theory is that this is because Daniel Craig has a similarly overdeveolped trapzius relative to his deltoids, although less so than you.

Note on the photograph on the right he clearly has a large angle from the ouside curve of his deltoid to the top of his trapezius. Clearly the shoulder of the suit is to fault for the crinkle in the shoulders not Daniel Craig's physique. Thus I conclude that you sir, are simply not built for TF. No amount of tailoring will make you fit into that line, short of having, as someone said, "massive shoulder pads inserted into the shoulder. However this would completely destroy the TF look you are going for. I think the following picture of Craig has him in a particularly well fitted jacket

Note the softer more rounded shoulder perfectly complements his body type, granted this is from the Layer Cake premire when he was less bulky and more lean, but as you can see the shoulder fits very well. TF is more suited (please forgive the pun) to someone like Chuck Liddell, with very broad shoulders yet a small angle between outside curve of deltoid and top of trapezius. Observe:


In conclusion, the suit does not fit well, and will not fit well short of genetic alterations on your part or "TF style" destroying shoulder pads. Of course if you don't care that your $3.5k suit doesn't fit and just want to be able to tell girls at the holiday parties that you're wearing Tom Ford then you're fine. However with the waist supression of the coat giving you Huge Hips/Ass Syndrome, you will look absurd

Having nothing better to do today, I printed out this thread and the other one and walked in to the Tom Ford shop on Madison. There was a good looking woman in the reception area and I said here, I think you will find what people are saying about you on the internet interesting. She looked at me like I was nuts and started to ask me questions. I was too embarrassed and told her to just read the articles, and left.

I wonder what will happen next.

I like The Prisoner episode where Number Six destroys an evil omniscient computer with a one word question: Why?

On another note, my fiancee has been watching my Prisoner and Danger Man DVDs and now has a crush on the 1960s Patrick McGoohan. What do I do? She even wants me to buy this, because I can't afford to have Rubinacci copy Matt's.

If you think it involves you getting laid, you are sadly mistaken.

Not for nothing but those new pics of Daniel Craig you just posted were from Casino Royale. TF didn't dress Craig in that movie, thus those are not TF suits.

More obviously, the jacket 'opening' is too wide, showing too much shirt. Combined with the wide, pointed shoulders, it looks like the jacket is being pulled apart from the sides.

Could it be DC was just standing very erect?
