WHOA
The current favored look in suits is feminine. Shorter cut coats, very slender cut pants, knit ties, weaker shoulders, and waist suppression so the hips are presented and the coat back rolls over the trunk junk.
All that is feminine and typically are features women's stylists give on the man's-suit-on-a-lady look.

You're describing the fad and affected styles seen today. Suits worn by the better dressers in MC show that there is a clear distinction in the details that make a garment compliment a man's physique.

...fashion isn't a standard of elegance and good taste, especially nowadays. Current trends make no exception.

You're not necessarily disagreeing with me, but I just want to vent on this.
There's definitely a case to be made that certain tailoring is flattering, but I take issue with the weight placed on this.

1. Suiting comes from sets of clothing traditions and formalities, and didn't just scientifically spring up as the way to flatter one's body. There are many other ways one could construct a flattering silhouette - with Darwinian attraction in mind, or perhaps more intellectual pursuit.

2. Stylistic variation is vast across many of the best tailors in the world. From what I understand, Huntsman, with its strong shoulders and often 1 button cut theoretically would give the most evolutionarily flattering silhouette. Reality? polar opposites can look fantastic is well, because everything is taken into context. "Relaxed" is often seen as an attractive quality, so softer shoulders can contrarily also look great. The point is that society has constructed it's own view of what looks good that cuts across some of the evolutionary peacocking.

I think when clothes fit well, there are much more important design qualities to be discussed than the tiny, often erroneous association of a garment to a gender.

I would go so far as to say that all the tradition was based on availabilty and type of material/assembly before easthetics even came to be considered. Something became flattering simply because it was the "way" of doing things. No one considered there may be better because better was arbitrary.

Also even today, there are large variances across various societies/ethnicities.

I've thought about this. That thing around his neck is most likely to be an undone tie.

I don't care about the current favored look in suits...

I have my own sartorial canons..

I do not pretend they are better than other sartorial canons but they're mine..

I can't pretend I like something because it is fashionable..


Well, with the exception of Vox.

The problem with most of you is your inability to distingush between fashion and style. There are so many things wrong with this look. I can't even start to count them.

Either way, it looks horrible on him or anyone else for that matter. Cardigan with a belt. You must be kidding me.

Help us out here. Is that more or less than the number of typos in your user name?

I disagree...it's hard for me to take someone seriously that cannot spell their own username correctly (unless it was intentional).
