I also assume that you also use a version of it with undernourished, hipster salesgirls.

This guy who has been photographed several times by Scott, is 100% perfect consistently. I want that suit and please tell me where in NYC I can get it. He works in midtown at a men's store?

LOL, because you have neither?

I am not a tailor, nor do I play one on TV, but here are some examples of what I consider the "right fit" for a DB:

All these people wearing the "right fit" db are dead.

Moreover, the sleeves are cut too tight to allow them to drape smoothly even when his arm is just dangling there.

Tightness and a nice physique don't suffice to make an ideal fitting suit in my book.

I can't help but say it; while this chap's sleeves are certainly too tight, I think that in terms of proportions, your sleeves are cut too full (I've heard that this is a Rubinacci trademark). I would very much like to see what this suit looks like with fuller arms, and yours with arms that are more closely cut.

Saw this suit on the sale racks at Saks earlier this week and it is RL/Cornelaini.

Kudos to those who called it.

BTW, these two were among the biggest stars in Hollywood, and lovers engaged to be married, before her untimely death, at the age of 26.

Rumors of my demise are somewhat exaggerated... ( sorry, can't remember the damn quote- too much nog.)

Is SoCal joining in on this experiment?

I do not like the spread shirt collar on him. His face is chubby.

Since we're talking about DBs, "right fit," and RL, here's me in an older (early '90s?) Polo RL DB. Thoughts/comments/comparisons? My shoulders ain't as big as Mory's, but I like the shoulder fit better on this suit, in any case. NB: This was originally a 4x1 suit. The button stance was too low for me, so I had my tailor add a buttonhole and convert it to 4x2. Hence the slightly different-colored buttonhole stitching.
