When I'm in doubt, I just wear two coats and hope it provides enough protection.

Tell me, do you at least bring your dressing gown with you when you go to these young women's apartments, or do you wear it underneath your other clothes, and just reveal it in all its splendor when you rip off your shirt and jacket?

I've had some suits made with detatchable lining. Problem solved.

That's a great idea. Especially since a jacket's lining will only just barely cover your ass.

There's the trouser lining too. So it's really more pajamas than a dressing gown. But fit on the pajamas is outstanding.

Was about to ask whether it was a piss-take on Aitor Throup's modular design, but I see it was uploaded in 2006

Someone should start a weekly digest for unintentionally funny posts on StyleForum. Basically what Vox did for good fits, but more focused on unintentional humor.

I really love Uniqlo dress shirts for what they are. Spread collar is nice and lies neatly under the lapel of a jacket when done up with a tie. The fit is pretty much perfect for me when I get the back darted.
It does come with a chest pocket and double back pleats about the shoulder blade as a default.

I had my tailor put in double darts in the back before by following the already visible pleats. Went back today to pick up 3 more shirts I dropped off last weekend and noticed they did not follow the back pleats but instead created a whole new section for the double darts. I was a bit peeved and asked for it to be redone. Now I am worried, and I also dropped off 2 more new shirts to be done the same way.

FWIW when done right it is very nice and I like it. Just surprised they did not do it the same this time. I was told it was a different lady in the back. ugh

BTW, for the guys who get their shirts altered, is it safe in general to get the shirts altered a bit brand new or should it go through 1 wash first. I asked my tailor and she said the weave of the shirt shrinks it vertically by very little rather than horizontally (since I am slimming the body a bit). How true is this?

I'd wash them 2, 3 times, anyway. Some shirts hardly shrink (after washing and ironing), but some do a bit. Better be safe than sorry.

This new guy at work has some bad style. First he was wearing these allen edmonds wingtips that looked like stone washed jeans. He constantly complains about how his trousers are too long and he needs to get them taken up. Also, he never has a crease in his trousers. He said he makes his wife iron out the crease because when you start to lose a crease it looks worse than not having one at all. My iGent head exploded.
