Have you tried the tea sized carnations?

I haven't heard of those before. The ones I wear bloom to about 1.5 inches in diameter. I'm usually at the mercy of my local farmer's market or flower shop.

Anyone have photos of a shorter and wider guy wearing one (and not looking like a gangster)? I'm 5'7" and 220lbs, wearing a 46-48S. I've always wanted to try a DB but fear it will look ridiculous. I've heard opinions either way.

Thoughts? Pictures?

thanks,
b

how about this?

The proper way would to get a Malmaison carnation which is two flowers done up in one. A smaller bloom is inserted into the center of a larger one with a wire stem.

awesome fabric.

I only have a DB suit and a blazer...I hope that there will be more to come. Sounds almost as epic as the task for ultra conservative pumps.

Those both look great on you.
