Still, this wouldn't be the first time that I am at odds with the Sf consensus, even if I am right!

This "Turkey Triangle" that you refer to is a PG term. I think you may be using it incorrectly though. Sometimes a jacket has open quarters and even if it fits perfectly, you can still see a triangle of material below the buttoning point. Not every jacket closes up like a bank vault when buttoned.

I like your fit as well, Aeglus. Also, I 100% agree with you on belts. If I am wearing a jacket at all, not just a suit, I don't wear a belt. Personally, I find them uncomfortable. I have my pants altered to fit, which means I don't need a belt to hold them up. Further, they destroy the nice vertical line of a suit. Finally, I don't want that bulge of a buckle showing below my button when my jackets are closed up...which is always, except when sitting. There is nothing worse IMHO than a buckle bulge ruining the cleanliness of a buttoned jacket.

All that's missing is a cigar & a tumbler of Bourbon

I think it honestly weighs close to 10. Lightweight it is not. Now that I see NOBD's Challenge I am kinda pissed. This would be a perfect Nucky Thompson fit. Damn, do I dare bust it out two weeks in a row?

Thanks for your comments, guys. I'm aware this and for that matter most of my jackets fit a bit long. It's due to the fact most are Zara numbers which aren't available in short. I'm already preparing to go MTM which is my only choice in this sartorial wasteland. As for the stacked pants, They're new and I knew they would need a bit more shortening the minute I put them on. Sure my wife said they look better thanmy no break ones cuz the socks don't show when walking. Lol!!!

Brah you know me - I would never say I am beyond reproach. Dont go there. Nor do I abhor a Spoozy reference. Just didnt think that was my look today is all.

....and its only condescending/insulting/jerky if you dont punctuate with an emoticon or use "lol" in a sentence, so its all good in the hood lol

whew ... thx Spoo. i'm happy i wont be going on your ignore list.

i do think the p/s clashes with the houndstooth, plus the shirt adds another layer of complexity.

I applaud the attempt, though.
