It's definitely not a suit. Neither the styling of the coat nor the fabric would be right for a suit. But also likely neither would be to the tastes of SF. But I can assure you, it's not a suit.

Dopey, it's possible that I just don't recall them. In fact after writing that, I got to thinking that I'm probably wrong about that because I remember seeing a bunch on people about the Spanish steps in Rome, and again in the main luxury district of Florence.

I actually really like the look and feel of the fabric, despite the synthetic blend. It's one button, with roped shoulders, but a totally unconstructed body. Also the sleeves are slightly too long and these shirt sleeves are a little too short, but:

I think that several successful guys have posted in this thread.

Any interest is combining resources to hire a maid for Raga? You know, as a gift for his service to Styleforum.

Failing that, maybe we can pull strings to had him conscripted. Many useful skills can be picked up in military service.

smile.gif The sad part is, I have a maid. But she only comes every two weeks, which is more than enough time for me to produce an explosion of clothing in my bedroom. (intended to spur a round of snide comments, have at it)

Have you looked into the kind of maid that sleeps in the same bed as you every night?

With regards to me having looked, the answer is yes.

I think he's saying that he looked into her, and he didn't like what he saw.

It's hard to find good help these days. Also, sometimes they refuse your offers no matter how attractive you make the terms.

Too many patterns maybe...

I have been reading a lot on this thread and have not contributed. This will be my first post.

I am still new to the whole thing and kindly advise if there is anything that I can improve on.

 

This is what I wore:
