    I agree, but that's not the "fit" I was talking about.

    BTW, did anyone notice the crazy amount of break (?) he has on his suit pants? In those rare shots that show his feet, one can see two big bulges of pants above his shoes.

    Also, the Harvard/Michigan law thing: the super-agent on whom the Ari character is based said the characterization is right on the mark -- except his education credential. The real "Ari" went to a no-name college and was a below-average student, apparently.

    Also, Piven is a huge Yoga enthusiast in real life and obviously keeps fit.

    I'm glad I haven't been smoking the same stuff most of you guys have. I've always thought that Ari looked like shit in nearly every outfit he wore (with the exception of one pinstripe suit that looked to be of the Paul Smith variety). His tie and shirt combinations were especially dreadful and his suits never fit and always slid over his neck with reckless abandon, nearly everything about them except the sleeve length were just wrong.

    I agree. If Vacca (made by attolini?) were making all of those suits, they would fit a lot better, no? Unless he's in-between sizes... Look at what happens to the shoulder in the third photo, that would never happen with my borrelli even if it was buttoned, which Ari's isn't, and I'm assuming attolini would fit in a similar manner. Or take a look at the photo where he's got both hands up in the air like someone is pointing a gun at him, the shoulders of his jacket are a mess. Again, that just doesn't happen with any of my borrelli, and I can't imagine it would happen with attolini. Or maybe he just needs bespoke.... I'm curious what others think.

    Out of all the pics the tux and the high gorge dark pinstripe suit (with the purple pinstripe shirt) are the best looking imho.

    Yep. I've always noticed that. His trousers are always too long. To my eye, his jackets seem to fit well in the shoulders, but his sleeves are usually too long.

    I like that one, but I also like the colors in the 8th and 9th pictures; the purple tie and gray-pinstriped suit looks really good IMO.

    Yep. The suit he wore for his daughter bat-mitzvah is ridiculous though... it has the most gigantic lapels! I wonder who made that one...
