I disagree. Retrospectively those linens where a disaster. the high waisted mid grey flannel pents I had made after that where a disaster, too. I severely lack Victor's upper body muscularity to successfully pull them off.
Though I've made the decision, that next time I'm in Beijing I will try a three piece suit. Probably mid grey flannel. If that does not work out for me I can wear it as two piece and keep the vest as incentive to stay in shape until I've reached manhood.
