I tuck the jumper in as well.
That's encouraging. I was in there on the weekend but didn't spot that one. What's the weight like on it?They look fine to me.

For me, they are a decent shirt for $120 all up, but the available styles are a bit limited these days.

I really like the Onslows in tan. Black pebble grain reminds me of sofas or car seats for some reason.
The MIJ Collection suits were - are - great, especially if you can get them on sale for $800 or so. I wish they would bring back the Collection sportcoats...
