I don't know if it was his physique or the costume, be he seemed really slim, especially in the legs.
The slimness of the legs was really set off by the belt pouches, which made his waist look wider, thus giving his chest/shoulders a narrower appearance.
The boots and gauntlets were way too bulky, and only served to make his legs and arms seem smaller.

In most comic book movies, a tighter suit like that is accentuated by muscle padding, and that didn't seem to happen.

For WS, I'd like to see something more akin to the TFA costume.
On a side note, I feel Evans is simply to boyish looking to be Steve Rogers. They could have used someone slightly older in the story, or someone who at least looked a little older and rugged.
Everything else I can understand, although I don't agree, but the bolded is what I don't get. Chris Evans makes a great Steve Rogers visually. At times he looks very manly and at other times he looks boyish. Both are necessary IMO, and one thing I dislike about lots of interpretations of Cap is that he's too burly to the point where it's annoying.
