+1. Seems to be a bit of an iGent fixation, those narrow shoulders. Yes to them, if you're built like an athlete with broad shoulders. No if, like many, your physique does not resemble that of a Greek god and you don't want to emphasise your hips.

Weird. I always thought the drape cut / extended shoulders was more the iGent thing. Maybe both extremes have their admirers. Agree totally with the rest of your comments.

What did I miss?  Has Noodles had a Neiman Marcus relapse?  Did he exchange his Formosa suits for Thom Browne?  Is he pregnant?

• I would suggest a gray a bit darker than mid-gray


Is sharksin a no-brainer because it's good or because it's bad?

Sharkskin is a classic american staple.

Sharkskin is usually to shiny for me. :/

Good sharkskin isn't shiny at all. It's rather dry and textured.

What Greg said. I think you're thinking of silk sharkskin, a la Godfather II.

I don't much care for sharkskin, but I acknowledge that it is a traditional American staple.

I guess it's sort of similar to the way some people don't like seersucker, which is also a traditional American staple. (Although, honestly, how anyone cannot like seersucker is beyond me.)

Man, come summer, I am definitely going to get some use out of my seersucker suit. Although perhaps I'll wear the pieces individually, more often than I'll wear both the trousers and the jacket together.
