Outside of the South, people see it and just think slave-owning racists. Within the South, there is often at least a hint of that, but it stands for much more than that IMHO.

What you say here may be true for some white southerners, but I've yet to meet any African Americans who affirm the stars and bars.

Not that it matters in the greater scheme, but oddly there are some. Far fewer than white Black Panther supporters, but some. Odd ducks.

There's always someone. I did, BTW, once meet a white supporter of the Black Panthers.

Oh, I've met a lot of white Black Panther supporters, but I live near Oakland and Berkeley.

Sorry to drag this out, but...

This is revisionist propaganda, whether you know it or not. This is Lincoln, from the seventh Lincoln-Douglas debate, in 1858: "The real issue in this controversy---the one pressing upon every mind---is the sentiment on the part of one class that looks upon the institution of slavery as a wrong, and of another class that does not look upon it a a wrong." Not exactly a hidden gem of a quotation, and there are hundreds similar - it's just that you've never taken the trouble to read a fucking book.

He was a precocious child, that Lincoln.

I agree with this, It'd look better with a red gingham square.

Rocking the J Press sack today. Looking at the full-length, I can see the pants could stand another round of slimming, and the jacket a bit more suppression at the waist. I can see why Lufty likes this look, though.

Leave the trou and coat as they are. Embace the sackiness.

+1. Over. Done. Anybody who cares enough, start a thread in CE. I've said all I wanted to say, although I should have just let it be in the first place.

To more important things:

Looking good', Lufty. Are pocket flaps that big standard for sack suits or a stylistic choice of your own? Also, lapel looks a little flat for a 3r2 or is that just me?

These are the standard flaps, no alterations.

A cleaner unfortunately pressed these lapels flat some time ago. I am working to get more roll into them again, but the press is tenacious.
