Not if you're wearing a cummerbund!

Don't you still end up with 2 car doors dangling from your armpits and a big conical hump on your back when you lean forward?

Don't understand where the hump would come from, but the dangling car door problem isn't so bad, particularly when you have a relatively narrow overlap.

Hmm, I probably have 60 pounds on you, so maybe that's why I have that problem worse than you do. I'm taller and fatter alike, they they look ridiculous when I have them flapping in the wind. As for the hump, they're counter balanced enough to distend the back when their weight brings them down.

Alden patent oxfords with silk laces I had to order from Cleverley. Looked pretty darn good.

I have to say that for what most people call dancing, the question of whether or not to button the suit jacket is (technically) irrelevant.

Foo, it seems you felt comfortable in your getup and enjoyed the event, congrats!

BTW, I hope that you did the Funky Chicken, for which an unbuttoned DB offers the potential of awesome moves.
Thank you.

Also, assuming foo did some break dancing, which I think is a safe assumption, a head spin with the unbuttoned DB would create magnificent whirling dirvish with the unbuttoned DB.

Every dance I do has a little Funky Chicken in it.
