Quote: Originally Posted by Mac I have my education paid by the taxpayers, but I'm not justifying stupidity with popular opinion. I think it's wrong. Of course there's going to be the few people who depend on EMA, but for the most part, it's money to spend on drink and drugs and other luxuries. I hope they take it away. Of course you will always find extra money useful, but useful isn't the same as necessary. I remember back in the '80s...

Also, I leave one cuff button open given my affinity for the height of vulgarity. That said, I do use a second coat maker that doesn't go for slanted pockets ... but does make for me a SB PL coat (with ticket pocket). I still leave one button on each cuff open. I'm just too committed to the look of vulgarity...

Whatever knot you damn well please.
Here is the effect: J.J Minnis' Dorchester range.
I think Sanguis Mortuum is correct.
