    Son, by your words, you strike me as young and immature and that's Ok...you are entitled to your opinions, whatever they may be. The people you are so quick to stereotype as "delusional and have outdated views on men's style(s)" strike me as far more mature and thoughtful, than you come across and they have certainly contributed far more to this forum than you seem to be inclined to do. I suspect that their experience in life and with outfitting themselves exceeds your own. Consider checking your insults at the door or perhaps finding yourself so disillusioned, you need to find yourself another Cyber-sandbox in which to play.

    The problem isn’t as much with the suit as with what is inside it.

    Is there some requirement that new people have to be a**holes during their first few posts that I missed?

    :wtf:

    Well before this thread gets shut down I would like to explain my previous comment with respect to slouching over.

    As evident in this side view it appears that the OP is standing up too straight and practically throwing his shoulders backwards and even arching backwards (perhaps with some forward hip roll.) Since it is a very slim cut suit the effect is to create some significant collar roll, to create an arm line where the pitch of the shoulder is off leading to rippling of the back of the arms, and to even create some rippling along the lower back and along the back of the trousers. If indeed the OP stands this erect usually then the suit is a poor fit. If on the other hand this is a somewhat artificial pose and indeed his natural posture is a bit more slouched forward then I think many of the faults with this suit could be solved simply by assuming a more natural posture.

    This of course is not withstanding the comments regarding a less fitted suit being able to mask the vagaries of ones posture at any given moment including posing for photos that are intended demonstrate the flaws in tailoring. In other words, loosen up the fit and stand more naturally and it would look a lot better.

    Time to apply the twit filter.

    It also wouldn't hurt a bit to open the vent flaps.

    I thought that was supposed to stay closed. It goes hand in hand with leaving the designer label on the sleeve. :D

    Maybe the forum needs a Twit of the Year competition.

    Maybe this thread needs a little comic relief. The following parody is not necessarily based on this specific thread, but is inspired by my idea of a generic "Critique My MTM Suit" thread.

    BLUE SUIT
    (Sung to the tune of the 1934 classic song "Blue Moon," by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart.)

    Blue suit,
    You just arrived in the mail.
    Though you were made just for me,
    I think you might be a fail.

    Blue suit,
    You need to make me look real cute.
    Instead I look like a real hoot.
    I think I may need a re-boot.

    The jacket in the back sure stretches too taut.
    And like Cling-Wrap, the trousers squeeze my poor thighs.
    Made-to-measure is the answer, that's what I thought.
    Yet I look like I'm wearing something pint-size.

    Oh, oh, oh.

    Blue suit,
    I'll ask for online advice.
    I'll post a photo or two.
    I'll really try to be nice.

    "I need assistance, please, from all you clothes pros.
    "How come my suit seems to fit me all wrong?
    "What's that? You're telling me you need more photos?!
    "If that's the case, then I will tell you 'So long!'"

    Oh, oh, oh.

    Blue suit,
    That didn't work out so well.
    Those men are mad at me now.
    And, suit, you still look like hell.
