I sympathise CD. There is always some prick who will nitpick about collar gap or jacket length or cuff width or some nonsense, not taking into account that people actually move and don't stand around like a robot all day (unless you are Vox, peace by upon him). These people also tend to not be able to visualise a context outside of their own little (usually very conservative) world, and have trouble assessing a whole look rather than just the elements.
