Well, let me assure you I'm not caught in any Lauren syndrome.
The disturbing the line of the suit line is a valid criticism which I understand. However, the reason I like them is because they are inherently wrong on a city suit plus I think they add, with a sympathetic cut, a little dash to the coat.
