And yet I give the gut reaction of any ignorant jackass off the street who walks into the moma, looks at a work and exclaims "that looks terrible" precisely zero weight, regardless of whether or not those views happen to align with those of the more enlightened critical observer. Likewise, in this circumstance.

You know, despite the obvious lawyer-speak , you clearly aren't a moron; there's no need to sell yourself short by acting that way. I do think we could have a profitable discussion about this, maybe in another thread. (Of course, one only has to point to the buffoonish Iranian to dispel any myths of enlightenment).

Why do people think lawyers are eloquent? I promise that as a rule they are not.

Generally, they're not. It was the 'pursuant to' that gave you away.
post #31626 of 115858
It probably should've been the fact that I posted a fit pic taken in the office at around midnight on a Monday.

It's like someone walked into the store and said, Hey, 'scuse me -- what's the exact pair of jeans to make my legs look as tiny, crisp, and snap-able as a day-old wishbone?

I do have a few pairs of less skinny jeans, but I have like 7 or 8 pairs of the A77 Joeys and they usually win out

I assume you just mean the trench here, just wanted to point out the p2p on that fleece is something like 16.5"

Thanks for comments, compliments, criticisms

Nice peacoat (something I want to have someday...). It's difficult to be certain with your hands in your pockets, but I think you're right about having it taken in a little.
Cheers & see above.

Nice coat.

I guess it's almost impossible to mess with the shoulders though. But I'm curious: are they obviously wider than they should be? (not a rhetorical question, just wanted to double check). One thing is that I have a rather large head which would perhaps be accentuated by narrower shoulders. Another thing: the one button on my jacket (unsurprisingly given it's boo) is almost falling off which perhaps had a loosening effect (though I'm not sure). I have some APC XS blazers which have much narrowers shoudlers - I liked how they look at first but later came to be bothered (justifiably or not) by how they kind of accentuated my giant ass head. I'm taking some pictures of me in both jackets, and also in another boo blazer also in size 38. I'm guessing the waist and chest look better on the apc? what about the shoulders though? Any comment (however brief) would be appreciate.
Photos aren't really good enough to give a true judgement, but from what I can see the APC looks a tad big as well. Best fit appears to be the bottom Band jacket, but again the sleeves need shortening a tad.

Cheers. They definitely need pairing with other maritime based clothing.
