 I haven't been to Alinea yet because of the closure for renovations, but it is next on the list! I can't wait to compare the two. Next time you come to Chicago I recommend Blackbird if you haven't been there already. It's not on the level of Grace and Alinea, but the food is excellent and a little more of a casual feel than them. Osteria Francescana was one of the places I would have wanted to go to if I were able to make the Italy trip with my wife. Unfortunately other...
I'm fast closing in on that point where I relegate JC's choices to personal idiosyncrasy and cease commenting on them. However, before that happens I would like to comment on what I consider to be the negative affects of SF. It's not surprising that such an enclosed society as this forum would tend to make people start to look like one another. Some of us are more susceptible to this than others. However, this tendency toward "SF approved", which tends to favor the average...
What do we think of this iteration? Everything is the same, except for a much more recent suit.  
 Just read through your Despos thread. Glad you got a chance to go to Grace (they got their 3rd Mich. star, if you didn't know), it's truly a spectacular dining experience.

I always thought roped shoulders made the man's arms look bolted on and robot-like. That doesn't mean they are bad looking. It's an aesthetic that I don't care for, but I can see why someone else might like it.
 What is normcore? Are you making up terms again?  Interesting comment on the stripes. I tend to not like pinstripes generally speaking, and larger ones even less so. Perhaps I was trying to compromise, in a sense, and should have just abandoned the stripe idea altogether.
This suit has been sitting in the closet for a loooong time. Long overdue for a resurrection. I have some business shit to take care of in Chicago. Should I wear this?   
Just got my shirt today. Out of the box it looks great. Considering it was on sale for $29 U.S. I really can't ask for more. Awesome buttons, too. I'd gladly pay full price for a shirt like this. Waiting to see how it hold up to a wash. Also have a MTM shirt in the works. It's really hard for me to find properly fitting shirts since I generally wear a 15, 34. Looks like this might be the answer!
Haha bingo!
Close but not quite.
