    I saw this picture a few moments ago and think it might be the single worst fit of any formal wear I have ever seen. Granted, LD isn't exactly a style icon, but come on!

    Some people don't pay so much attention to the fit of their clothes like the StleForum crowd. Event called for a tux. He gets one in his size and calls it a day. He dresses casual and in my oppinion, people his age focus more on comfort.
    Steve Jobs wears dad jeans. High profile people aren't dressing to impress and their hobby isn't clothing.
    I'm sure if you went up to Larry David and showed him the benefits of a fitted suit, he'd like the way he looks in it, but you'd have to force your way to show him because I doubt that's where his mind is at.

    He's worried about the platic packaging on GPS devices right now.

    He's anything but a style icon. In fact he prides himself on looking as 'casual' as possible. [​IMG]

    He's an old rich guy, who cares?

    What were you expecting from someone who wears long sleeve polos and halfzip sweaters 364 days a year?

    He has such an awkward physique I doubt anything fits well on him.

    He seems to love that late 80's, relaxed Armani fit on his formal wear and any jackets.

    When my parents got me my first tuxedo in the late 80s, they stressed that it should fit closely. I guess this is what they were trying to avoid.

    [​IMG] Can someone give me the blow-by-blow of what exactly is wrong with his tux ? 1) His left leg seems to be the proper length, but there is pooling of his right leg? 2) I think the tux shouders are way past his natural shoulders. His left almost looks like a shoulder pad. 3) His left arm is bunching up like crazy at the elbow. His right arm sleeve seems very baggy. 4) Divoting on the upper right arm sleeve? Sleeve length seems right. He left the button button undone. Am I even close ?
