The Dege silhouette suits the coat better, too.

I can't imagine why the didn't unbutton the bottom button - especially given how that button pulls the fabric creating an unsightly ripple.

Don't know what the overall theme of the show was, but buttoning the bottom button (and top) maintains a very militaristic feel.

oh tom, what do you know about militaristic? i dont mind it, wouldnt wear it (prefer the 6b bogart pic), and do also suspect that withouth RLPL on it, there may be some different feedback.

I bet Steve Harvey has already placed his order.

Michael Irvin, too.

Oh wait- it's not gold or orange.

I think it's great. I'd have the pockets stitched in, but otherwise it's a great, classic, and very unique style. I think this is the only kind of RTW DB I could get away with. The key to sitting, I suspect, is very long double vents. You leave the top two buttons done and simply unbutton the third...

Absolutely true.

And, I think the 8 button DB suit that is the subject of this thread is somewhat ridiculous looking.

Ralph Lauren has a habit of "tweaking" the classics. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I think he missed his mark on this tweak.
