    Klobber nailed it on the head. TF is hard to rock but when you can... you look like Spoo

    Tom Ford seems to favour those with plenty of height and a build on the slim side. It's a great cut, but unrelenting. I remember him stating on an interview that he isn't for everyman. Only for those who 'take care of themselves' so that Ford might take care of their style - and wallets.

    I do take care of myself. That is not synonymous with "slim," yet i see how the confusion can arise. In fact, many equate "slim" with not taking care of yourself but be that as it may, height is definitely not on my side. I had commented to a friend that the suit made me feel like Napoleon! :D
    Do y'all prefer this Canali fit on me: [​IMG]
    Mind you this is a regular. I of course, would be a short.

    Dustin is a very soft shoulder, Isaia's most "Kitonesque" model. Quite different from this TF.

    Thank you much.


    Both the dustin and the Canali have a "softer shoulder." Do y'all agree that is the better silhouette for me?

    Compared to the TF, it might be a better fit (pic is a bit blurry to tell). But how about trying other brands also, just to be thorough.

    Better - yes. I also think the notch lapels work better for you. I would also suggest R may be better than S although would need a full body shot from shoes to head.

    I will make a lukewarm suggestion here - why not give Oxxford and some other US or British makers a day in court? You want a suit that is well structured yet relaxed in its proportionality along the midsection. Canali is closer to working, but check out Oxxford and Hickey Freeman before taking the plunge.

    Another shot of the Canali:[​IMG]
    Isaia:[​IMG]



    Yes sir. Thank you. In fact, all i wear now is oxxford. I had them made about 3 yrs ago and have since dropped a significant amount of body fat and replaced it with muscle :) (or less fat, depending on how you look at it :tounge:) As such, my tailor and i have been tweaking the suits but i think she is at the end of the line and it's time for some new ones.

    Isaia is nice. A little pinchy on the waist but has potential particularly if you continue slimming down (or get tailor to let out around the waist since there is usually an inch or so of fabric to let).

    Right now though - Canali fits you best by far. Isaia has potential to fit but would need some work letting out or you working out and losing excess spare tire :).

    If you are on a major weight loss spree, why not hold out for a bit until you hit your targets? Once target hit, get some suits. For now make do with slightly awkward fitting suits you already have.

    Looks best so far. I think this length may suit you, but I need a full-body shot to tell for sure.

    I think the Isaia works better... not sure where you see it being too tight in the waist as his hand is in the air.
