Rumor is that it WAS a three BR, but then two were converted to closets... just sayin'...

Others may wish to weigh in, but in my experience, once a shoulder pad is creased, I've never been able to get it out. Perhaps there are pressers/tailors out there that can (and won't destroy your jacket in the process); if so, I hope you find them. Perhaps one of our esteemed tailors can suggest a solution...?

If you like the tie, save it & wear it again in the summer with a khaki suit.

Thanks - I really like your suit fabric. Is it wool? If so, what kind?

Hmmm...I think I might need to buy one.

Didn't notice this comment before. Yeah, it's tight. It's made to be tight. The thing was made in the 70's. Glance at a few catalogs from that era, that fit was rather in. Very tight crotch and seat, and a weird shape in general. As somebody who wasn't alive then, I can only assume that fashion designers were trying to encourage more sexual openness with that cut. Also, I don't think it's really obvious in those pics, but the trousers also have a slight bellbottom.
It's not something I wear seriously, obviously. At least as a suit. I've been known to break the jacket out as a sportcoat on occasion. If you want someone to blame, Anderson Little made the thing. The guy who runs them now posts here.
Freezing this morning. Thanks for your comments yesterday, the tie was a Borrelli 65/35 cashmere silk, and the cufflinks were my fathers. Sorry no good pics, but early morn meetings and Mrs. Spoo still in bed. Hermes wool/silk tie courtesy of MalfordofLondon Watch the gap ala UrbanComposition
