Maybe some day...

They could if they spent more time on internet forums instead of wasting away in movie sets and A-List clubs

It's his party and he'll cry if he wants to...on a similar note I am considering trying out black cordovan Vass monks with my upcoming tux as I haven't been able to find a pair of proper ones yet that fit well.

Yeah, they don't know what fame is until their face is made into a StyFo smiley.

I'm not sure that is will be possible for me to speak with you again if you do that.

Agree on Rolex or Omega but must take issue with IWC. In the broad context the introductory level JLC is nicer than the introductory level IWC, though the top IWCs are nicer than the top JLCs.

Using as examples how 4x1s look on 2 shorter guys (5'8" and probably 5'3"), and then extrapolating to guesstimate how a 4x1 might look vs a 6x2 on 6'1" Hanks is decidedly stacking the deck [lol8[1].gif] in your favour.
Also, the 4x1s...

...acheive their effect on these shorter men by shifting the buttoning point down to lengthen the sweep of the lapel to make them look taller.
Doesn't make sense in my mind's eye to do that for the non-vertically challenged Hanks. You're 'fixing' an imaginary problem created in your own head.
Just my 0.02, and all IMO of course. smile.gif

All true, but you've missed what it does for their chests, shoulders, and face. A 4x1 has more effects than just the torso-lengthening effect. As on this tall man:

300

That looks better overall than Hanks's 6x2 shawl, even though Hanks's coat fits better, and even though Hanks has a better figure. The reason is that black tie's triangle formed by tie and lapels around the white shirt needs either the length provided by button-one shawl or the angles provided by peak lapels to look its best. This is why button-two shawl or those high-buttoning two-button SB tuxes one sometimes sees don't look great.

Again, I didn't say there was a problem with Hanks's coat.: it's not sartorially bad. I said that an opportunity for true excellence was missed.

P. S. I also said that one should always choose 4x1 shawl over a button-two shawl, because the first pretty much always looks better.

This is exactly what the Academy Awards are about, though.

this is at best arguable, and imo just plain wrong. jlc is miles ahead of iwc in the haute horlogerie department. not even a question.

I generally disapprove of must human clothing items on dogs but this, although too wide for the actor's face, looked pretty good. For a dog.

I bet he got more heavy petting than Hanks, Clooney and Pitt, combined.

Of course, he's not wearing pants and he's a better dancer.
