I like Chris Hardwick, a lot. He's a philosopher, actually, and he has a lot going on. Funny besides. I like everything about him. And that's why it pains me to see him so uncomfortable in his suits. I know he can be fitted better than we see him so what's going on?
My first impression was, Jesus, this guy looks like PeeWee Herman fitted too tightly on purpose so his socks show and he looks completely pulled in and constrained by his suit, but that turns out to be wrong. PeeWee Herman's suits actually fit better than Chris Hardwick's and they're both animated. Will somebody please get this guy a new tailor? Is it a thing done on purpose? For comedy? Am I being punked again?
Here is one of the Xfinity commercials that makes me cringe whenever I see them. Turn off the sound to avoid the commercial. No point in running an ad for them here. I'm showing what gets me worked up.
I realize his whole schtick is being a comedic nerd, so a PeeWee Hermanesque look is appropriate for that, but I'm not so certain that is what Xfinity is going for even with his non groomed hair.

Below are ads for well fitted suits with some comparative movement. They both have the fabric pulled by natural movement but they both don't make the wearer appear as if they're comically tortuously misfitted. Whereas with Chris Hardwick and PeeWee Herman they both look like they cannot wait to tear off their uncomfortable suits soon as the shooting is finished, while the two below look comfortable in their clothes.
