^My guess would be, "Hey, how about buying this overpriced sportcoat, but based only on seeing it from the back on a rather unflattering model, having photographed what I can only hope it not his 'good side.'"

In that case, it looks like a very Banana-Republicized (i.e. toned down with loss of meaning, and without any originality) treatment of a Tom Ford ad. Ads reflect the clothes, I suppose.
