The straw man only exists in the mock trial of your imagination, counselor. It seems you agree a well-fitting suit can ameliorate, but not conceal, corpulence. Trump (I posit) wants the latter not the former.I admit I haven't read every post in this thread, but isn't that a bit of a straw man? Or has anyone suggested that a properly tailored suit could make his paunch magically disappear and transform him into the very image of slender elegance? If that proposition has been advanced, then I join you in disputing it.
If not, then I return to my main point that Trump's physical stature has nothing at all to do with his slovenly manner of dress.
And yes, a well tailored suit could minimize the visual impact of his corpulence, though well short of making it disappear entirely.
I believe I originally answered a post not by you questioning why a man of Trump's (supposed) means would buy such baggy suits. And for the record I agree with you he has generally vulgar tastes.
