http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...LV9U1ERE7F.DTL Editor's note: A recent photo of J. Crew's shrunken suit had readers asking, "I'd love to know whether this represents high fashion or is a bad joke?" Style asked Pocket Square columnist Aaron Britt. The suit silhouette popularized by designer Thom Browne - a slim-fitting gray number whose short sleeves and cropped cuffs leave no joint to the imagination - has resounded across the men's sartorial...
