    What's vulgar? I rather like the tux. The pronounced peaks are very characteristic of Brioni too, though, IMO, the double breasted is more Dr. No. less 007.

    The peaks go beyond the shoulders... that's just a little too comical for me.

    It's the placement on the mannequin, to emphasize the high gorge. In real life, they wouldn't be *that* exaggerated.

    My Isaia 40R is going up on Ebay in a few hours. I'll link the auction when it starts.
