I think the jacket's back quarters should be shorter. This may be a personal quirk, but when I'm standing straight, I like the hemline of the jacket to incline from front to rear. I also think you should shorten the pants.
Shoe, I forgot to say thank you for the great FAMs. Wonderful shoes. If you come across anything more in my size, let me know.
I need a new pair of frames and was thinking about the style Malcolm wore. Does anyone know who makes a really high quality pair of frames in this style?

I'd like to add a solid navy assuming I'm happy with the solid charcoal I have on order (from the H&S Target book, HS 525). It looks like people have nice things to say about the Cirspaires. Putting weight/warmth issues aside, is there any reason not to go Crispaire? I guess I'm trying to understand the factors that would go into deciding...

Sounds like it might be a little warm for my needs. I've been happy with 10 oz. fabrics with half linings. ...

I have an isaia suit that really seems to handle wrinkles well. I wish i could find out what fabric it has - someone had told me once it was a 120 Scabal but i dont consider the source particularly informed. Do you have fabrics other than Target that you...
