I wasn't around at the time - I am not quite that old - but I would say you have nailed it sir!

Thanks very much! The pin is the Eidos pin that comes with all of their suits/jackets/outerwear. I usually take it off when I wear suits but I was rushing that morning.

I wish either the tie or the shirt was solid. Still "thumbed" though.

I would say something but TheoProf would just disagree. :lol:

That's a lot of shoulder padding

And don't you Americans have rules about when to wear seersucker?

Oh c'mon Caustic Man! Don't hold back. I posted this morning knowing I'd get a reaction from you specifically. And yes, I'll probably disagree.

Something about after memorial day or some such nonsense. Shoulders are very lightly padded and the jacket is pretty unstructured though, so I'm not sure what you're seeing there.

lol No point. You are immune to improvement.

 

I kid, of course. Kinda.

You're right on this one @Caustic Man. Give me a mulligan. I need to find my way to a tailor ASAP. On further reflection, I also think @sebastian mcfox is right about the jacket. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks for the feedback guys. I still have a long way to go.

Just giving you a hard time. I think we all understand that tailoring is done when funds allow. No biggie.

Holding court all day

It's could also be the SelfieBump (TM) that makes the shoulders look more heavily structured than they actually are

A quick check reveals that central Ohio weather is in the 50s today. Seems a bit chilly and premature to break out seersucker and linen.
