    Ahaha, good one.
    Let me help you with that. As the title states, I am referring to the actual fit of the suit. Is it the shoulder fit? The divots? I'm curious.
    As for my opinion, I hate the shoulder divots and how they "ride up" when they are a bad fit.

    I'm not a veteran here, but I have noticed that vague threads do clog up the boards.

    But an answer to your question for me, is the gap between the shirt and jacket collar. Just looks shite.

    If I see somebody in a suit that is either too small or too big I wince. It's not difficult to get one that fits properly, nor expensive.

    I don't think the term is being applied correctly. I'm clearly stating what I'm asking for, and that is trying to understand what people hate about ill-fitting suits. Sure, it's vague in the fact that it's not clearly explained what part of the suit I'm referring to... but that is the point, as I am trying to get opinions.
