I guess you're right; this is probably one of those times where one likes something only because it looks good on others...
Just to show that I can do normal occasionally...

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.
