wadding is not a shoulder pad. It's smaller and less "constructed."

I maintain that chicks dig well-dressed men in high-waisted pants (and the long ball)

How do you know she doesn't like the money? bigstar[1].gif Flew first class?

I will level out my lapped seams now, that is safe as this will happen near SR

Will you also get a competent English shirtmaker to straighten out your Neapolitan shirt shoulders and remove the abundant pleating?

Nobody dares to touch the puff-sleeved pirate shirts.

Love the Pink Oxford. What mill if you don't mind?

The room they have in SF this visit is much better than last visit; much better natural lighting.

I don't recall for certain but probably from the Thomas Mason book.

I've ordered a few things that aren't typical. When I ordered the pink shirt Dino, said, "You like things that are different". I guess I do. As much as Foo is writing all over SF about blue chambray I think most guys look best in blue end-on-end and bright pink oxford or end-on-end. Chambray is good, but like denim, best for tweed jackets and corduroy. the blue or PINK EOE is right with a pin stripe suit, blazer or jeans.

I'm having a cigar linen suit made, and was thinking of choosing grey smoked MOP buttons for the jacket. Dino and Mina, however, think this might be a bad choice, and suggested medium brown horn. Anyone have thoughts? I could go either way, but for some reason, in my mind, MOP seems like the better choice.

D,

I posted this for suggestions on good taste, but did not get much traction. It's not cigar linen, (maybe maduro linen?) but gives you some ideas what horn looks like. Not sure if it helps much.

Would also like to get your thoughts on my suit, what you think is the best choice.

On that, I would go with the darker horn buttons.

I agree with them. MOP buttons are for sportcoats in my mind. You are getting a suit made, I would stick to the proper matchiness of buttons even if it is linen.
