Atrocious. Notch lapels or waaaay too skinny peak lapels. Pocket flaps! Just tuck them in for God's sake. And horrendous shoes. Pre-tied bows to boot.

Tom Hanks looked good, as long as you're okay with the '70s/TF bow tie. I didn't see much... was watching bits and pieces on the plane.

Pitt has been better dressed before. Cummerbunds need to make a comeback.

Those buttons are removable. They are attached to a strip.

^ Congratulations. Out of curiosity, what inspired the choice of flannel?

It was an outdoor wedding in late fall, so was looking for something a bit more substantial. I really dug the texture of the flannel, as it made for a subtle, playful difference. But the biggest reason was the color. The cloth was (IMO) the perfect shade of midnight. I would have gone worsted had I found something in the same color.

ˆˆThose are some sharp, great lapels right there. A fine choice for a very big day.

Money blindness. I want to poke my eyes out. How is it possible to get it so wrong? And with so much money and presumably advisors.

Thanks. Now I've got this frightful idea for an "evening hoodie" stuck in my head: midnight blue wool, double-breasted (no zipper). Grosgrain trim around the cuffs and edge of the hood and jetted handwarmer pockets.

Black silk ribbon to cinch up the hood.

I want to gouge out my brain.
