None taken - fret not.

Is there a FIH mafia here, trying to stamp out half Windsor knots?

I do admire your gusto, you certainly go balls to the wall every day. I am surprised that Windsor has not generated more scorn though.

This, gents, is a budget master.

Thanks. For what it's worth, the coat and shoes were thrifted, the cap, tie, and trou were bought new at outlets, and the shirt was thrifted by a friend and given to me.

***J/K, looking great today!

Thanks, Yizz. It is all about careful and constant shopping. I have cut back on E-Bay hunting as of late though...although I did score a great SC last weekend.

Yeah, I know, but there aren't many 34-36S coats and suits out there. I have lucked out with just a couple of 70 early 80-ish stuff, when those sizes were "truer to size". It's not easy when you're near 's dimensions....

I will keep my eyes open. I did not realize that was your size. If I find anything, I will pass it along. I do remember seeing some really cool 36R pieces a while back that had me wishing...

How you manage to infuse this traddish outfit with a sense of menace is beyond me, but well done! Every detail about this just works. EDIT: That collar roll is just...damn.

That is the last thing you see as your eyes close forever........PG and his cigar. The pistol has already been returned to his pocket.
