All-around win. You just taught me how to wear a check-suit without upsetting my superiors. Tasteful and CBD. Thanks.All-around tool-of-the-year.
Hello kai, I like the colors as well, especially your choice of tie for the holiday. Nice! I think the lower buttoning point serves well to lengthen your frame, but to my eye if that buttoning point was an inch higher, the jacket would appear more balanced IMHO.
