This Suit Is Really Green
Also, notice the excess material near the knee on the left leg--a clear sign that my pants are too baggy. When you buy an off-the-rack suit, this tends to happen. I always have my tailor seriously taper pants, but he is too timid, like a mouse afraid to come out of its hole to...alter someone's pants. So, 1) beware suits in bold, solid colors, though don't avoid them entirely; 2) have your pants seriously tapered; 3) be assertive when dealing with your tailor.
