I used to refer to it as the 'triangle of death' but it seems that 'turkey triangle', which was not coined by me and not a term I was aware of having used very much, if at all, is equally appropriate. If the photos are of people in motion, sitting or whatever then it's understandable but if the pic is of a robot pose or similar and there is a gaping vision of shirt, tie, sweater, etc. beneath a closed button it completely throws off the look and negates the point of even bothering with fitted clothing IMO. 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!!!
