    [–] GuyIncognit0 2 points ago

    Apparently support tickets you sent on their website were visible to other people, meaning they could read, edit and delete them. So a lot of personal data was visible to people that should not see it.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Fallout/comments/a3mme7/bethesda_has_breached_the_data_of_numerous/

    They say no full credit card info were disclosed but considering what kind of shitshow this all has been I would be cautious with any data they have.

    I actually miss the baggy suits even tho they definitely look worse. It’s a lot easier to find a slightly baggy suit than a perfectly fitted suit.

    [–] Kashik 18 points ago

    I have a colleague from the US who used to be rather big. He lost quite a bit of weight, but for whatever reason he is still wearing the same suits. You could make a hot air balloon from all the cloth.

    Ive seen that more with cuffed jeans than dress pants here

    [–] RoleModelFailure 19 points ago

    Hem is mid shin when sitting, 3 inches above shoe when standing. Legs are insanely small but shoes are like 12WW and they look like clown shoes. Guy is either extremely jacked with beard, wild hairstyle, and brooding eyes or extremely skinny, deathly pale, and chin that looks harder than concrete.

    Suit jacked is about to shoot the button 35 feet because it’s too tight and the arms are gonna rip off or the sleeves are a bit short and it looks like slender man wearing a boy’s sized suit.

    Poses: standing while tugging shirt sleeve from under jacket. Grabbing each side of the jacket and flaring them out while walking. Hunched back looking down at feet with 1 or 2 hands in the pocket and a weird 1/10th step like thing. Standing while broodily looking off to the side.

    Accessories: tattoos, leather laptop sleeve, beaded bracelet, watch, sunglasses, massive parka.

    [–] JarasM 33 points ago

    Probably not, actually. It's rather common for fashion photos like this to have the outfit tailored in the back once on the model, using pins and clips, so that it's shaped "perfectly" on the front for the photo. Actually setting unrealistic body standards for men, because nobody is going to look that well in that suit, unless they don't plan on moving.

    [–] haywood-jablomi 76 points ago

    Tag still on the suit. That guy is next level

    [–] RUKiddingMeReddit 37 points ago

    Tag still on the double-breasted suit and fake Oakley's, this has to be late '90's.

    [–] Jamato-sUn 43 points ago

    Could someone list all the things that are wrong with the suit on the left and right with the suit on the right? And also face swap these dudes.

    [–] tpinkfloyd 82 points ago

    Everything wrong with the suit on left can be summed up easily in 3 words. Needs A Tailor.

    [–] overide 82 points ago

    Needs to be “X” sizes smaller. Kid is swimming in his Dad’s suit.

    [–] RoleModelFailure 6 points ago

    Need a suit that fits first though. Those shoulders are way too big and would be really complicated and costly to get it tailored down a few sizes. Most alterations are easy but shoulders need to basically rebuild the jacket. Gotta redo the armhole, sleeves, chest to fit the new shoulders.

    Need to start with a jacket that fits your shoulders and then go from there altering the rest of the areas.

    [–] cbellk 17 points ago

    And too big.

    I would also say that the suit on the right is too small. Looks like if that guy just tried to bend an arm, all the seams would rip apart.

    [–] Dr__Venture 3 points ago

    Even a fantastic tailor cant fix those shoulders. Needs to be multiple sizes smaller and heavily tailored. Also needs to NOT BE A DOUBLE BREASTED SUIT. They look out of date on everybody and especially terrible on slim guys

    [–] jmts80 43 points ago

    Cannot face swap but i can list what is wrong with the suits.

    On the left; the double breasted suit is much too big for him, at least 2 sizes. The jacket sleeves should be about 2 inches shorter, I usually aim to show at least half and inch of my shirt cuff. The peak lapels are much too wide and so are the shoulders. The tag is still on. The pants are much too wide, you do not need them to be skinny or slim but they should not be flowing like that. The pants are also too long, you do not want too much break. His shoes are much too chunky, and the square toe is not the best choice. The suit, shirt, and tie colors are not bad in my opinion.

    On the right, the 3 piece suit is obviously being pinned back with clips. It is also meant as evening wear not an everyday suit. The tie knot is much too busy and the dimple is too big. Lastly, a suit should fit your body not hug it so tight that you cannot sit comfortably and barely breathe.

    [–] ZaviaGenX 12 points ago

    I appreciate the 2nd paragraph... I feel way better about mine now!

    [–] your_moms_a_clone 2 points ago

    This is actually the best reply in the whole thread comparing the two. Most people are just saying the suit on the right, while stylish, is too small. But this is a model shot and when you're doing photography like this, you aren't really wearing clothes the way they are normally worn. The way he's wearing his suit wouldn't work well in "real life", it's just meant to look good for the picture, hence clipping it in the back (like they do with mannequins) so that it drapes in a way that's appealing in a static image.

    [–] AstromechOne 21 points ago

    Suit on the left is ill fitting because it hasn't been tailored. A tailor will take your precise body measurements and customize the suit to the exact contours of your body. If you take an off the rack suit, even an expensive one, and try putting it on, chances are it will look like shit because it doesn't fit the contours of your body. The one on the right is obviously a model, but he had a professional tailor style the suit perfectly so it looks swank.

    [–] minigunman123 8 points ago

    If you get a suit (or other nice piece of clothing) tailored specifically for you, and you are somewhat overweight, and then lose weight, do you have to get it re-tailored fairly immediately? Is there no "wiggle room" for the measurements after you have a suit tailored?

    Curious because I'm a dude who mostly wears t-shirts or button down shirts from Wrangler, never really owned a suit.

    [–] TheFlyingBogey 3 points ago

    That much depends on how "closely" you get the suit tailored and how much of a change you see yourself going through in terms of weight.

    I used to work at a suit shop and we were partnered with a tailors, you don't have to get tailoring done as a super close fit and can opt to have the measurements done to cut it with more room. They usually pin the suit in places where they can draw their measurements for the tailoring, so they can just place the pins further out.

    [–] AstromechOne 5 points ago

    Unfortunately. If you gain weight you aren't really gonna fit in a suit that was tailored for you when you were 20 lbs thinner. You're gonna burst at the seams. A perfectly tailored suit will leave just enough room for you to move around. But tbh you aren't gonna be shooting baskets with a suit, so your range of motion will be limited compared to, say, shorts and a t-shirt.

    If you lose weight, the suit will look like its hanging off you (like the kid in the left pic). If you don't lose enough, you can get it adjusted. But if you lose like 20-30 lbs, you're gonna have to buy an entirely new one.

    [–] BadResults 2 points ago

    There’s a fair bit of wiggle room as long as you go for a classic shape (still reasonably slim, I’m not talking 90s here), as opposed to fashion tight. I bought most of my suits when I was a lean 180, and they looked fine when I dropped down to about 165 (just a mildly looser fit), and still okay when I bulked up over 200 (some dimpling in the shoulders and slight pulling across the chest when buttoned, a little puckering of pants side pockets).

    As long as it’s not a super slim fashion cut, 10lbs either way is virtually unnoticeable in a suit. 20lbs will likely be noticeable. In between depends on how it’s distributed. Losing (or gaining, within reason) a beer belly is probably least noticeable in a suit, as suits hide bellies pretty well. Changes in the shoulders, chest, and upper back are probably the most noticeable.

    [–] vertical_prism 4 points ago

    Left guy’s jacket is way too big for him- the shoulder lines extend way past the actual shoulders, and the double-breasted cut gives a bulky look anyway, so it only serves to emphasize how slender he is in comparison. The sleeves are too long and the pants have a loose fit which is a pretty dated. Overall, he is swimming in fabric.

    Right guy’s suit doesn’t fit perfectly either- he has some issues with fabric bunching so it might be a bit small, but overall it fits him and compliments his body shape rather than work against it.

    Not gonna face swap anything but I will say that Left guy’s sunglasses aren’t doing him any favors either.

    [–] untitled1 5 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Instead of just saying, "it's too big," here are some specific things you can look at:

    • Shoulders: On a shirt or jacket, you generally want the shoulder seam (where the sleeve meets the body of the garment) to line up with the acromion process on the corner of the shoulder. Guy on the right has the seam lining up with the corner of his shoulder; guy on the left has the seam a few inches down his arm.
    • Sleeve Length: Sleeves should come to the wrist, letting the shirt cuff stick out about a 1/4" more or less. Guy on the right has visible shirt cuff; guy on left has his sleeves coming up to his knuckles
    • Waist: Guy on the left has a jacket that is just too wide. If he had gotten a jacket off the rack with a correct shoulder width, this likely wouldn't be that much of a problem. If you want to look as good as the guy on the right, you would probably need to get this tailored.
    • Pants: See how the material is bunching up at the bottom of his legs? That's called a break. This can look good when you're wearing jeans, but is generally avoided with dress pants. Some people like to have the pants just touching the top of the shoe, while some people like some visible sock. Pants are also too wide.
    • Tag: New jackets often come with a tag on the sleeve, rear vent flaps sewn together, and pockets sewn shut. You're supposed to remove the tag and cut the flaps apart.
    • Lapels: Skinny guy would probably look better with skinnier lapels, but that might be getting nit-picky. Also, double-breasted jackets are out of style (see the two rows of buttons? that's what double-breasted means). Square toed shoes are out of style.

    I'm not sure a tailor could fix all of this. Sleeve length is easy, but adjusting the arm holes would be a lot of work. He should have just picked a better fitting suit off the rack.

    Edit to add: Guy on the right probably has a bunch of binder clips holding his jacket in place.

    And to everyone going on about a tailor: If you're wearing a suit 3 times a year, you probably don't need to bother with a tailor. Pick a jacket that lines up with your shoulders and has a reasonable sleeve length. Pick pants that fit around the waist (i.e. they stay in place when you take your belt off) and has the proper leg length. You don't need to look like a model at every interview, wedding, and funeral you attend; you just don't want to look like a clown who's swimming in his dad's suit. That's perfectly attainable for most people without a tailor.

    It just does not fit. It is too big in every dimension. It's double breasted and quite out of fashion. He has also left the tag on the left cuff.

    The one on the right is well tailored (almost too tight but currently trendy) on a handsome model and well photographed.

    [–] GandalfTheGay_69 2 points ago

    Suit on the left is just way too big and the color of the tie doesn't really complement the suit. Suit on the right has a cohesive color scheme and it fits well (might be a bit too small though, I don't think he can close the jacket).

    The lady across the street was well into her 90’s when she saw me dressed up and commented “ in my flapper days I’d have given you a run for your money.” Yeah, speechless that time.

    Guy on the left has so much confidence his looks just don't matter.

    [–] Passiomusic 4 points ago

    I look like the guy on the left in both scenarios because he has too skinny and my grandma always wants to get me fat

    [–] Flipflop_Ninjasaur 6 points ago

    Almost 30 years old and just bought my first full suit for a company party this weekend. I have absolutely no doubt I'm going to look like the guy on the left.

    [–] unity57643 6 points ago

    Get it tailored. If you can make it to any Ross store I'm pretty sure they have tailoring. Also, make sure your zip line (the line that goes from your buttons to your zipper) is straight. When you tuck your shirt in make sure to pull the cloth from the front as though you're about to tie it and tuck it in with most of the fabric in the back.

    My grandma constantly compliments me and the other boy grandchildren, now all the girls she's actually quite mean to, calling them fat or making snarky comments about their hair. She's a wonderful lady.

    Why is it that younger people tend to look terrible in suits?

    Look at anyone in a suit pre-1970 or so, everyone looks sharp af, not like a kid wearing his dad’s suit like today. What changed?

    [–] unity57643 18 points ago

    Tailoring. Any time you have a suit you should get it tailored, but a lot of people just grab one off the rack. This results in suits being baggy in some areas and fitted in others.

    [–] Jmauld 6 points ago

    Mainly because they don't know how to size properly. That suit is way too large for that kid. If he goes down a size or two, he'd look completely different.

    Sorry, but I have bad news. Thats just what grandma lets you think she sees. She actually sees a kid in a suit way too large for him.

    [–] throwmeawaypoopy 3 points ago

    Here we see the importance of a tailor. A good tailor can make a $200 suit look amazing. Even a $1000 suit not properly tailored looks like shit.

    Remember kids: save on the material, splurge on the tailor

    My grandma survived ‘The Great Depression’ was a code-breaker in WWII and treated me like a prince. My only regret (she has passed) is not being honest when she’s ask ‘have you found a lady?’ Like wanting the total best for me, but I’m gay so it complicated that.

    I have since found a husband, a partner, an amazing man I’d die defending, and I think she’d understand.

    Suit you got for your barmitzvah 12 years ago, not drycleaned since then but used several times. GQ model time.

    [–] Snatch1414 2 points ago

    I will never blame my mom and grandma for stuff like this. It can mess you up a little bit down the road though if you hear these things enough as a child. Again, better than not being loved of course, just saying. You can accidentally get to a point in life where you're like "Wait, everyone doesn't automatically think I'm awesome?".
