Has to be satirizing 2010 #menswear. I refuse to accept this is not a joke.
You should probably just steer clear of Italy?
What do you recommend for his body type and odd look. I hate his suits as well but I've grown accustomed to that being his look. He's consistent and never waivers.
Not sure. The super close cut doesn’t help - especially the chest. His vibe is also a problem...he just doesn’t seem to wear it well, but it’s hard for me to pinpoint the root cause...?

I'm not sure why his look is off but honestly he would look better in a leather jacket, jeans, and boots.

To my eye, this guy NEVER looks good in his clothes. Just always something way off...ALWAYS...
It is odd for a guy who makes his living commenting on classic menswear.

that suit looks like one of those schmatas people post here with the title “comment on my online made to measure suit”.

It's really weird. He works with amazing tailors too, so it's hard for me to make sense of his appearance...

I can't exactly put my finger on it, but he doesn't look like a real person in those clothes. As an aside, the woman struck me as looking ridiculous, but maybe that's just a bias of mine.
He has a very abnormal posture where his legs bend forwards like a dinosaur. Makes it impossible for any tailored clothing to drape nicely. He'll probably look better in casualwear.

Those photos are terribly inaccurate, if these are the are the 246 and 248 swatches. The light grey (246) is MUCH lighter than shown. If one has to be a DB, I'd say the darker grey, though both would look good.
