Would you call it an average look/cut/fit, or do you like it?

Personally, I'd like all my suits to look like this, sans a few with 3 button roll overs. I can't really find faults (is the sleeve length a tad long?). Where can you?

Sleeves are too long.

Collar fit is horrible.

Shoulders are horrible.

Body fit is blobby.

The quarters are closed like a coffin.

And is he Photoshopped onto that lake?

Yeah, unfortunately they didn't go back to Canada for that shot (it was a good series while it lasted..).

I noticed the sleeves, and the upper arms a bit of bunching, but didn't notice a problem with the shoulders (can you point it out to me?).

What' do you mean by blobby buddy fit?

It is a very clean chest with a front dart. And yet, it makes him look tubby. The claustrophobically closed quarters remove all dynamism from the lines of the jacket.

It is unfair to judge because he is wearing RTW costume for a television show, but I would not emulate anything in what I see. His shirt collar is okay...that's about it.

Well, he is overweight like myself. How much can a good tailor hide - really - in a suit, and shirts? There's gotta be a line.

Understood about the costume.
