Nein. I've been to over half of the MLB stadiums...I've ate their good food, drank their beer, and had a great time...but root for them? Hell no.
I wouldn't root for just any old home team, but I'll root for the A's. It's like hoping that your (poor) cousins do well.
Thanks, always appreciate your input. Maybe no one will notice, but I will know. I refuse to deceive myself intentionally, lol. Here's another picture
Does it make any difference?
I don't think self-deception is required, but YMMV. You can't use it as you've shown above, though. Even with casual buttons, this jacket should be used for the most formal odd-jacket ensembles. Light blue or white shirt, conservative tie, gray pants, dark brown or black shoes. You know, the SecurityGuard.
@DonRaphael I am curious, why do you hate metal buttons? I have noticed this trend here.
You weren't asking me, but since you've called it out as a trend, I'll answer:
• Don't care for gold
• Even in non-gold metals, they're generally too flashy
• They're noisy! I have one jacket with brass buttons, and the damned things are click-clacking throughout the day
• They do have the country club connotation. If that were the only thing, it wouldn't stop me, but it doesn't help
I don't understand the argument 'in the real world blazers/jackets normally have flaps' or 'people won't notice in real life' Isn't the point of SF to go to a higher standard? using the above logic - the real world has mostly terrible fitting suits, but we wouldn't recommend wearing those either, right? (or for that matter, wearing square toed loafers, which are so popular) If he's asking how to differentiate a suit jacket from a SC, pockets are one of the only ways (if you arent changing buttons, which is the original topic).
Slippery slope arguments aren't always useful. In this case, no one will care probably because they shouldn't care. Especially if he changes the buttons.
Elio, I don't think the BlazerSuit is intended to save money or avoid looking like you can't afford a proper blazer/sportcoat. It's useful for light packing as noted above, but more than anything I think it's just menswear nerdery. Vox's OTT example with the swappable buttons is the apex of that nerdery. It helps that (IMO) it's a good looking suit.
