    On the money. That's why he should just chill and stop buying all the zegnas, RLBLs etc and wait to get a proper suit from bntailor. They have lovely extended shoulders and make the wearers look like gym rats with massive V

    Cavernous?

    But forreal, I don't get that B&T suit. Is the appeal that it looks like a Liverano suit that 85% fits at something like 50% of the price? I mean, those quarters are too aggressive. Dude might be hunched over, but if he's not, then the suit is making him look hunched over. It might look better if it had three buttons (edit: it does) a higher lapel roll and a bit more drape, but I still think they've pushed some of the style a little too far.

    It might just be suffering from a bit of tension at the waist, of course, and then it would need to be let out a touch.

    I'm with YRR on that suit. Too much shoulder, fronts cut away too much, too much suppression, and pulling enough at the button that it's not even sitting flat!

    Guys, that's the exaggerated version of the cut, dude is the tailor's relative and a walking showroom. Clag's suit looks more toned down.

    suit looks cut perfect to me, but only on that exact body type.

    He definitely has his cuts exaggerated. More than I would wear, but I'm envious of it nonetheless. The cut itself is somehow steezy. I wonder if it is a reaction to the too narrow cuts that are all the rage.

    Mine is yeah, more understated. As are all of tchoy's. As well as the father's and the younger brother's (who cuts the pattern now).

    clags would not not only look like a clown in the other cut, he would likely be very uncomfortable.

    And if Noodles would get something in between those two cuts, he would look da bomb

    Oh dear lawd!!!
    You so mean [​IMG]
    I do have narrow shoulders and a big head. My head is so big that I have a really hard time finding sunglasses that fit my head.
    Thanks for your feedback.
    Clag has mentioned that I go with a Formosa from NWMA. I believe I will pull the trigger if I can sell this Zegna.
    I didn't realize that my suits were slim fitting. Then again, I like fitted stuff. But with getting married and getting older, I am no longer the slim man that I used to be.

    My thoughts on this.
    He seems like a very slim man but for some reason he's got some big broad shoulders.
    I don't like the wrinkles in his crotch area. I don't know why I was looking there but them wrinkles are pronounced.
    It looks like he is lifting his shoulders or something but he got some strange looking shoulders.
    Very thin waist.
