As someone else stated, you're creating an argument in your head for a DJ problem that doesn't even exist in this case.
Ok, thanks. I think I see what's happening now. You attribute to me a view I don't hold, which is that there is a problem with Hanks's coat. You think that I think that the coat in some way doesn't look good. I never said that. What I said was that a 4x1 shawl almost always looks better than a button-two shawl. In fact, I said:
"...one should always go with 4x1 with a DB shawl. The short shawl does not flatter the face, shoulders, and chest. Despos said that a few years back on SF, and this resoundingly proves him right. The short shawl shortens and shrinks his chest and lengthens and widens his hips and abdomen."
Obviously, this means that 4x1 shawl does a better job of this than button-two. It doesn't mean that Hanks's coat is objectively bad, on any dimension. Nor does it mean that it makes him look bad in any way. It just means that the coat doesn't make him look as good as a 4x1 shawl would have. If I say that a Bentley is better than a Mercedes, does that imply that I think a Mercedes is a bad car?
That's all I've said. Your photos don't contradict it.
