I would be more worried about the gap between the waist coat and trousers. Even with the customary button unfastened you should not be able to see Mr Beckham's shirt.

I'm not sure but it looks a bit like a TF suit.. fantastic looking suit..

and yes, the waist coat should not allow to see the shirt (could be due to movement)

No, it's not the movement. The trousers are cut way too low.

He's the new Thom Browne. Two years ago every other thread was about TB. Now it's TF. Next year it will be someone else. It's sad.

Yeah, based on the suits I looked at when I checked out his store in NYC, they're Tom Ford. He does that larger 5th button thing.

And even more so, because the fit of the suit is at least mediocre...

Ignore the threads that do not interest you.

The point of the thread was about the cuffs - not about tom ford.

OK.

I like the look of 2" cuffs, also on wide fitting trousers. But I would prefer only a slight break. As he is in movement on the pic, I can't really tell how much break there is...

Could have fooled me

The suit fits him pretty terribly, and the cuffs look like every other cuff I've ever seen. Perhaps 1 3/4 inches, which is the standard wider cuff that most people get these days, maybe 2 inches.

That's the style these days... not that I care for it.

But then, I don't feel like all fashion should cleave to the same traditions either.

Based on the left leg - break looks very slight.

Are cuffs more appropriate for a certain body type generally?
