    Point taken, sb. And thanks for the warning. :fonz:



    But so am I, ace, ;) so it all evens out.



    I don't know what to make of that, Moo.



    Indeed. So tax it, I say. Tax the beard!



    Whaaaa? The whole reason I challenged Rob and ace to a fit battle was so we could talk about the best ways to utilize a jacket that we share in common. Rob's not being defensive; he's explaining his choices.

    In that vein, I'm surprised that Rob hasn't caught any flak about the number of patterns he mixed. The jacket fabric is extremely busy, which is why I went with solid shirt and textured tie. I was sure that by now several SF members would have spanked Rob -- lightly, of course -- for mixing it with a checked shirt and a striped tie. Granted, his scales are all different and appropriate, but here’s an even closer shot of the SC fabric. As you can see, it’s really got it goin’ on.

    I prefer to pair it with solid colors as well. But it can be done with patterns.

    Those pics are too small for me, ace, even with my reading glasses.
