    I will take a stab at this but please wait for the experts to chime in.
    The quarters are too open, which would be the case when the jacket is bit tight at the waist and chest areas.

    If you ask why wide open quarters are an issue, no one wants to see others' (well at least a man's) crotch.

    the jacket portion is open so that the bottom of the tie and belt buckle are visible. some people eschew this greatly, other dont mind as much. either way, it could be caused by the fit or cut of the jacket.

    I really miss posting in this thread, but I have no reason to wear jackets and such until the fall when I start up my internship. Just wanted to say I really like the looks people are posting lately and my recent purchases (which will debut soon) have been honed and distilled from the advice and comments I have received in the past here. No more tight pants, no more jackets that are too tight in the middle etc. Looking forward to being an active member again.

    In other news, writing a dissertation is really hard. Even more so when teaching a section of statistics.

    Quick question:

    Navy suit, white shirt...wedding next weekend

    Silver textured solid tie? purple textured solid tie? I don't want to wear a glen plaid tie as I am not in the wedding party and I think the groom is wearing one.

    Thanks.

    There are absolutely no limits with sports teams. At least not while you're at the match. Screaming and cursing at the men in the wrong coloured shirts along with a few tens of thousands of other people, is an exhilarating and civilised release. It's an outlet for the base, barbaric, tribal instincts that we hide under our Egyptian cotton undershirts (or should do). Let it out on a Saturday afternoon for the contrived and nebulous purpose of organised games, and no war is necessary. Then once out of the gates, we can treat everyone with respect - even if they support Chelsea.

    As for suited socklessness, rolled up jacket sleeves, baseball caps and cargo pants with a tie, well, what is an internet forum for, if not to release one's most strident prejudices unedited without the risk of offending actual people?

    P.S. I accidentally "thumbed" T for his overall look before realising he was wearing denim. [​IMG]




    Wearing a jacket will increase your confidence and poise while you write. Good luck! :)

    Oops. I made a typo. Let's see if we can all figure it out what I meant using context clues. [​IMG]

    I like your shoes, Crusty - wet weather specials or not.

    It's absolutely steaming here; hot and humid. So I...er...dropped the waistcoat.

    Do grayscale pictures of pB's outfits look any different from full color versions?

    Also, +1 for silver
