Suit Adverts - What's Wrong With This Picture?

Greetings, gentlemen,
Maybe I'm wrong here but this advert for a well-known English gentlemen's tailor seems to put a certain languid "look" above style.
Am I alone in thinking that the DB jacket doesn't fit very well (certainly not a very British Cut)?
By contrast the other model looks as if his jacket will be badly puckered when closed (if it closes at all) and his pants fit oddly, as if he has pulled them down in an effort to make them low-hung.
Any other observations?
Are these fashion adverts - which are meant to impress us - a good topic for a thread?
Beau

Pants way too low on the three piece. You're not supposed to see waist band with the vest on.
