There are only Two men in that picture
The problem that seems overly burdensome is that people who have only a rudimentary understanding of the topic will promote their opinions with extreme vigor. If they were actually trying to learn and gain knowledge, even an error could be easily overlooked.
1. His PLSS DOES NOT seem to appear as big and bulky as others have depicted. ( Especially at that angle, opposite but similar to visor reflection)
2. His suit is quite dirty. (Ties in with previous suggestion of blending into background)
3. His Visor contains interesting "flaps/blinders" which might explain oddity of visor shape in reflection.
Gene comes bounding energetically down the mountain towards the rover. He loses his balance and falls to his knees, bounces forward on all fours, and his left foot kicks out an impressive spray of dust, perhaps 3 meters long, towards the rover camera. He rises and continues his traverse with undiminished attack.

This comparison below is from a different Apollo controversy (12). I present it to show how lack of detail can distort things. Bear in mind, this is a relatively direct frontal view and the PLSS outline is very diminished. Add the curvature of face shield, low resolution and further distance from subject and Wah Laa!
