    Shen, you look fine. Some people around here would probably like to be slender, so they make odd comments.

    The overall appearance is what counts. The jacket is what is used to adjust for length balance. Long legs longer jacket, short legs shorter jacket. Waist height, there is an ideal height overall. Some like them way to high while some others like them way to low. There is a ballpark area to play within. Around here some people have the waistline way way to high. Clothing is visual, so in the art category. No amount of talk will make lousy art better. Some pay lots of money and don't know they are caught up in hype. So, some people pay less money and are better dressed (not counting fit, which is a whole nother ballpark).

    I believe he knew it wasn't meant in a derogatory way. Besides, I'm 6'1 170. Not exactly plump.

    Got on the scale and saw 180. 5'9,170 is to much.

    Shen looks fine. The picture with the hand in the pocket is throwing off proportions and confusing people because the buttoned button looks like it should be at the waist, but there's still pant there and it looks 'strange' since it makes him look really 'leggy'.

    That's just how pants with a higher rise look lol.

    And fwiw, I'm 5'10 and 180. I think I look better than when I was 145...

    No, that's not it. It's mostly how far the jacket (and arms!) drop below the crotch (I promise never to say crotch again). I realize that the jacket is entirely in proportion to the rest of the fit and it still looks strange to me. Hence my use of the term.

    155 to 165 would be ideal for me. No bulging stomach.

    Camera level. If lower makes the legs look longer.

    You guys are nuts. FWIW, I think the cut of the jacket looks great on you, Shen. Good stuff.
