whnay,
The cloths seem to be heavier weights. Are these clothes you would wear year round in Atlanta?

Not a chance, I bought them for the short winter months and my biz travels (NYC, Chicago, London).

For what it's worth, Luca Rubinacci called it 'spalla camicia' when I met him in NYC.

It's always nice to see a classic Navy sportcoat that demonstrates how a stylish cut and design make it seem modern and fresh versus dated or boring.

I'm a big giana camica fan so I tend to think everyone who's a normal weight looks better in that - I think you might like it.

Now this is what I think of when I think of Rubinacci. Very nice!

Is it just me, or do those trousers need their back shortened? I'm looking at the bagging material behind the thighs.

Thanks Bill. That makes sense, and is a bit more nuanced.

I don't think so, I have them with some pants and I think it has more to do with the fabric drape and standing still for a picture than any excess fabric. The pants that I own that photgraph that way I just could not take any fabric in at the thigh without looking like a sausage

This thread is a classic clusterfuck with anything Rubinacci as the ticket to the party despite how bad it looks.

I don't expect everyone to like it but I guess its too much to ask people not to be dickheads about it.

Well, it is 'The Rubinacci Thread'. If you don't want to see Rubinacci, you're more the fool for clicking on the link to begin with. Anyway, nobody here has been hostile toward critique, only toward vague and unanswerable swipes like your own.

That's spot on. This description also generally applies to any thread over two pages.
