first is my base okay fit wise and stuff??

okay first jacket, sleeves are way to short, collar is not porpotional to lapels ect but I only have two jackets not at the tailor right now :/

700

second one is the pinstripe orphan but I actually fits me current pictures are not available because my phone is wack so look at this other picture with the jacket instead, I have a hard decision to make also I have no idea what I am looking at in this picture and yes my mirror needs to be cleaned

also speaking of horse head pictures check this out, gem from some kids at my school

It's all about the fit, bro. Go with the orphan unless you have a suit or a blazer that fit better.

It appears that your bottom button has accidentally fastened itself...

Wouldn't that be a three button coat? Or else that first button is super high.

It's a 3 button suit,  3rd not fastened.   what do you do with a 1 button suit? foo.gif  I don't understand the bottom button thing, WHY?

And no, i don't wear  "fashion trends" (ie- skinny anything). I'm an un- fashionable guy.  rotflmao.gif

But thanks anyway.satisfied.gif

I'm looking for pocketless white shirts with vertical single color blue grey or black stripes in 15-16 neck, 32/33 sleeve and a fullish cut. Has anyone got any to sell?

 

Also, if there's anyone out there to whom I owe a PM regarding something, my apologies, I write things down, and things have been so unreasonably hectic my end lately that the "to do" list has multiplied to unprecedented proportions and I've not had time to attend to anything. Hopefully will get in touch with folks by the end of the coming week.

Most tuxs are one button. You wear your tux by buttoning the only button. It's more formal.

 

Regarding the reason why you only button the top button on 2 button jackets is legend has it, as King Edward VII grew fat, he noticed he could no longer button the bottom button on his jackets and waist coats due to his ever growing belly. So he said, "Fack it" and stopped buttoning the bottom button of all of his suits and waist coats. Folks thought it was his fashion statements so everyone caught on the trend. What confused me was why didn't he just tailor new suits? Was he that cheap?

 

Also, before you sit down, please unbutton your jacket unless you want to look like a country bumpkin. Cheers!

A vest. Sometimes it can refer specifically to a waistcoat that has fabric instead of satin in the back, soas to be able to be worn without a jacket.

Yeah, unlike many, I don't blame ARod for this year's playoff woes. Everybody but Jeter (and Ibanez) utterly fell apart at the plate. If the pitching wasn't as great as it was (well, mostly CC), we probably would have been swept by the Orioles.


At least you aren't a Braves fan ...
