    While there's an argument that the tie doesn't need to reach the belt of low rise trousers, this one should absolutely be tied longer. You're kinda swimming in that suit. Old dog is probably on the extreme loose end of the range I'd consider wearing a suit.

    I like the fabric and the jacket seems to fit quite nicely around the shoulders so your fit isn't totally off. Your trousers are pretty big though and I thing it would flatter you more to have a slimmer (without being skinny) pair. Also, the tie needs to be longer.

    Shoes look nice as well. Big fan of that model.

    I don't know how much of this is the photo vs. the actual fit, but you look quite a bit heavier in this photo than the one you posted in MC Casual.

    Photographic evidence to support Van Veen's excellent point. That suit is doing your physique no favors.

    What hurts more than the fit is the slouch. I think if you were standing up straight it'd look a bit better.

    Flusser could include these pics in a new edition to his book so as to demonstrate the importance of fit and proportion. The pics could also be used in an Atkins ad ("I lost 40 pounds in two months"). The difference is striking.

    A bit, not a whole lot. I am down to a true 33" waist on a 6' frame.

    I think it's a combination of the angle of the shot, the stance and the suit trousers. The width of those trousers combines with the other two factors to add pounds and make your legs look short and stumpy - which they aren't.
