I recently started a project on my blog that involves me taking pictures of random people I see on the street. I then proceed to edit the photos to make their outfits fit better. I tried my best not to alter their body at all. Please take a look and I'd love to hear your opinions on how I can improve on my idea.

I suggest you start with fat chicks.

I think it might be the angle. But I prefer my jackets to be 2-3 inches past my belt.

I should start with fat guys. That's a great advice.

Where can I find photos of fat guys in suits.

Well, according to the SW&D crowd, MC is full of them. So, I'd try WAYWRN.

Yeah this is a lot like the 'get foofed' thread and the upgrade they do in GQ which used to be interesting but you see the same old thing month after month now. Get frumpy schlubby guy, buy him slim cut clothes that actually fit. OK we get the message!

I do like the explanation on the photo though, it gives a strong visual effect on the Dos/Don't.

Not only that but the balance is wrong now. Quite long lapels and damn low button stance IMHO.

Agreed. I dont think its as simple as just hacking off a few inches. Plus I also think you made it way too short. But I guess good idea in concept.
