I don't know your age, but I don't usually work with "kids" so I'm likely to give an opinion suitable for an adult. (Hence the E. Hardy avoidance). My direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org
if you would like to try it.
Thanks AnnSOS, but I'm now beyond the point of no return. A reverse form of transmogrification has already
taken place here. I doubt that after tomorrow night I'll ever look back. In fact, I'll probably wonder how I ever came to doubt myself at all. However, you know how after cleaning your vintage 1938 Bugatti Roadster, the paintwork is clean and bright but still missing a certain something? You know how after you've summoned up so much spittle to clean your boots that you're left half a stone lighter? Well that's how I feel about my blind date seduction jacket. It is indeed magnificent, but still missing a certain something. Maybe a pocketsquare and/or scented rose for the lapel is needed. Whatever it is, I'm sure I'll be able to figure it out. Thanks again Lear (fully formed & ready to fly the sartorial nest)
