Also, the pants are low rise, and slung around my hips. No way they fit any slimmer. They're low rise b/w 10 and 11 inches. The Mabitex have more rise than the BR pants.

Mystery, you must realize that a non-trivial segment of SF are very low functioning, and susceptible to power of suggestion. Note that *I* framed this thread around "old man". Had I not said that, much fewer would have thought it, unsuggested. If you look, it is not different than any typical WAYWRN posting. Like you said, just a little boring. And maybe a bit much for a local bar. The jacket might bed a tad long, maybe an inch. But that's not going to elicit an old man comment. Think deeper. Note that no one has stopped to consider the girl may have literally have never met a guy under 40 who wears a blazer (or wears audible shoes with leather soles) She has a strong association with slacks and her grandfather, for example. She does not read fashion magazines, and has never seen a non-grey man in slacks. She works in a business casual / non-profit setting, and men at her work never dress professionally. In fact, consider that most men she knows own 1 jacket/tie for weddings, always wears jeans/shorts/sneakers, have square toed shoes, and do the "generic business casual" thing. In reality, at work and outside, I get dozens of compliments for every 1 negative. In fact, this is the first.
