I guess you're right; this is probably one of those times where one likes something only because it looks good on others...
It's hard to accept sometimes. I'm pretty short, too.
I've toyed with the idea of getting a paddock coat for a while. I probably won't because I don't have the kind of money to "toy" with my clothes, but it's certainly crossed my mind given my preference for buttoning points.
JFK didn't generally wear paddock--he just buttoned the bottom button of regular two button jackets. I can't tell if the picture above is a regular two button or not though, but I imagine that if it is, that's why his gut is accentuated so much. I think a proper paddock cut wouldn't have that same effect. Plus we all know that RDiaz has a six pack cut from granite.
Just got home from Parent-Teacher conferences. It's been a long day. My plan was to wear a white shirt today, but I found a stain on it when ironing. I decided to go with this blue gingham shirt instead. I usually wear blue gingham in the spring and summer, but felt it worked nicely here as well. The color palatte is a mix of cool and warm. I think there's an equal amount of both that it looks balanced.
