Actually, it could be worse:



And no, this is not meant to be drape!

The Germans, who are obsessed with getting that line perfectly vertical all the way up and down have a way of dealing with it, but I don't think it would work with a belly of that size; by straightening the shoulder, which would eliminate some of the leaning, you throw some of the excess to the side instead of the front, where it is needed. I thunk stripes should be avoided for this type of figure for this very reason.

I dont get why someone would have to apoloize for their looks to you or anyone else?

Ha! That is rich coming from you. Your entire raison d'etre on the interweb is to criticize others, usually by reference to class (hopsack anyone?). Yet, when the table is turned you claim to be the victim.

My first thought on seeing your pic was of Mr. Creosote...your homophobic comments have merely confirmed that my initial perception of you was correct.

It hasn't been but it may going forward; so, better hold onto your sock. Hey, class doesnt exist, that's why it doesnt bother you. Class in taste doesn't have a lot to do with money or where you were born but you would need to be on your prescription to process that.

It's so obvious, can't you do a slightly better act for us? How do you maintain such influence with the mods here?

The technical details of a suit are a tailor's job. Any man who is not a tailor and wants to be considered a tailor, is a geek and further cannot possibly understand the overall picture of clothing and style. What's worse is when said geek doesnt even know what he's talking about and makes things up to boot.

As a man of narrow waist an ample ass, I found the trousers didn't fit, and the tailor there cautioned that there was not enough fabric to accommodate my posterior.

Both she and the SA recommended I try on a 38. The shoulders extended past my shoulder and made my head look like a pin, not to mention the several inches of excess fabric thtroughout the chest and body.

The SA said it looked fantastic.

apparently also thinks I should build up the shoulders. But frankly, I don't mind being a beanpole and would prefer looking too slim to invoking 80s Armani.

I have seen many of your posts in WAYWRN thread and it never ever crossed my mind that you might benefit from paded shoulders. IMHO, your suits fit you very well.
Please post the names of people who advised you on doing that, so I can ignore their posts in a future.

I suugest that jefferyd track Bunny, dart him, skin the pelt, and leave him to awake groggily on the UWS with just a trace of spittle on the chin.

While hr comes to progressively angrily, rip the pelt apart and analyze it (no: not analyze in the edmorel fashion. )

After the analysis us done, I suggest donating it to a senior fnb.com memberso that they can make sweet, sweet love on it in front of their gas fireplace.

Oh: cheers!

Like the one on the A&S you cut open?
