Your physique isn't the problem. The jacket you posted before was shapeless and unflattering, with odd angles. etc.

If you were to do it over again, slightly wider lapels, a better taper to the waist and chest, with the proper buttoning point, and you jacket would flatter your physique.

I don't see what was so terribly wrong with your first jacket. If you extended the shoulders a bit, it would help a lot. The chest looks fine the way it is. Don't catch SF-syndrome and assume that tighter and narrower always looks better. Also, you can extend the shoulders without making them overtly padded looking.

What's wrong with that physique? It looks perfectly fine or are you hiding a massive beer gut that can only be seen in profile?

I don´t find anything strange on your shape.

Mine is more or less same, 1, 92 meters tall and just 72 kilos. I look great ( words of some posters , not mine ) on my slim suits.

Try some Zileri or slim suit .

Again that picture of DSM fox , looks 4 lines of charlie . I still don´t know what he means .

The easiest way to achieve a "powerful look" is to wear a Glock conspicuously.
