You really are one of the most impressive blowhards around here at the moment. Sure, that particular guy was a fool for considering two shirts "many," but whyever would it be inappropriate for someone buying a lot of items at full price to ask for some kind of discount? More to the point, what the hell could possibly be considered despicable about that? We all know most retailers are selling items at a very comfortable profit margin if tehy're selling at full price, and it...

The marshalls and officials still wear morning suits, I believe, and obviously academic regalia as those above remain de rigueur for faculty. The gown style has changed -- most are now closed-front, but I'd say the vast majority of professors wear at least shirt and tie under the gown (or the equivalent in women's...

Do not listen to Bowtielover. The correct length of your jacket has NOTHING to do with the length of your arms. It looks like it just about covers your seat, which means it's just about acceptable; a little longer would be better, but this is nothing to worry about. I agree with what others have said about the shirt/tie combo. I'd also say the jacket's sleeves are fine, but your shirt sleeves are too short. If there's time, see if your tailor can let the jacket out at the...
