    Since you asked. Notice that the stripes aren't anywhere near in alignment, that the shoulder and chest area are loose , that the jacket gapes in the front where it should not, and the odd patterned "V" on the inside of his left sleeve. Terrible extra fabric in the sleeve head, I could go on. it's all very well for ready made but one would think someone pushing custom would have a better idea. No wonder he is bent over like Cornelius. Now all this technical stuff pales in comparison to how infrequent this suit style is seen in the USA. Most Americans wont wear this because of its trash bag roominess.

    My comments are both sincere and accurate. If anyone degrades anyone, it is the wearer of that, that, that...suit who degrades himself. He offends me with it sir, and he owes me an apology.

    The Germans, who are obsessed with getting that line perfectly vertical all the way up and down have a way of dealing with it, but I don't think it would work with a belly of that size; by straightening the shoulder, which would eliminate some of the leaning, you throw some of the excess to the side instead of the front, where it is needed. I think stripes should be avoided for this type of figure for this very reason.

    And yet you are right about both, the obsession and better to avoid stripes (or any dominant pattern)! [​IMG]

    Oh, I thought we were determining how many extra suits Anderson and Sheppard's newest Spokes Geek was going to sell or if he would actually hurt the business in spite of his winning personality.[​IMG]

    If you go to FNB's site and find the pics of Two-Ton Teplitz you'll see him wearing the vest for that suit and he looks completely normal.

    He might be Italian, his balls are very English.

    But again, what makes you think the wearer wouldn't look much worse in another suit? Imagine him in an A&S suit with all it's negligently draping folds?

    I think also that because I simply do not care about mens' bodies that I must be part of that small percentage that is in no way gay. There are those that are happily gay, those that aren't and a large proportion that live in a state of denial in the middle ground.[​IMG]


    I don't want to have sex with trees or paintings and for some reason I can emit aesthetic judgments about them, in fact if I couldn't I'd be in denial, like a lot of dudes (like you) are about being unable to emit any judgment about a man's physical appearance.
