The outrageous lining is something that, in general, only the wearer will know about and enjoy. I really don't see how you can have a problem with the suit. The only thing I think you are correct about is the braces - but then, like the lining they aren't supposed to be seen either.
Wasn't he talking about Vox's outfit in that post?
