    Can someone post pictures (their own, or collections of pictures of others who look good) of proper fitting suits?

    I see the HOF thread but I just don't feel I can trust it, especially with people posting comments saying this and that is off etc. And not only that, there was a thread here the other day where someone (where this guy had a cut out section of his shirt cuff for a watch) posted a pic of his new suit and I thought it looked horrible and I was really surprised when some members said it looked good. I really hope they had no idea what they are talking about, this bothers me cause a suit to me is not cheap, I don't want to buy one and get it all wrong.

    So it would be great if you guys can show me what a proper fitting suit is suppose to look like.

    first do a search on "fit" and study what a well fitting suit should look like. then look through the many threads on here with pictures (WAYWRN, Sartorialist Looks, Non-Sartorialist Looks etc) and make your own decision on what that is.

    as a forum people will have different opinions on whats great and whats not. the information you need is all available. do a little digging and studying.

    Not me.

    It seems difficult to evaluate the fit of this given the pose, but I don't see anything particularly well fitting here.

    The cleanest fits I've seen posted on SF are by jefferyd:

    It's not black, it's grey, and the wall behind it is white. But since I know what white balance is I have no real excuse.

    I would also add Phat Guido to the list as well...

    And Nii for a broader build fit.

    I've always liked PandArt's fits.

    I think the light grey DB posted above is as close to a perfect fit as you're going to find.

    It's pulling at the waist.
