    I only wish that there were four panels, or rabbits, or maybe tacked on turnback cuffs. - B
    Judging from that photo, I doubt if that's the direction sir would take, perhaps Four leaf clovers, leprechauns and turnbacks on the coat vents?

    Maybe lucky charms as well.

    You've always been charming, and soon your day to again wear this outfit will be here.

    I was thinking more along the lines of "Erin Go Bragh"

    For the Little People to love you, you must dress in their colors.

    Quite. When his jacket is complete, will you invite your continental chum to take part in the parade?

    I only know that the assertion is true, I have never come across the underlying rationale.

    Dammit, it's frustrating when you guys are in inside joke land and those of us just starving for a nugget of real education get stiffed again.

    I have friends on all the continents, except for Antarctica and Australia.

    I'm sure that there are nuggets somewhere in Manton's post.

    Don't consider Sator a friend, huh? Is it because of the drape?

    Not at all.

    I'm just not convinced that he really lives Australia. I think that he lives in 1901.

    I have seen the same assertion, also, and assume it to be correct. Fortunately for Vox, as he made clear, he is not a businessman, can wear whatever he wants to the office and need not fear the talons of propriety. For him, this cut is therefore appropriate.

    But what do the downtown hotts say on this matter? I always consult them before I buy anything.

    Oh, wait, shit, was it an inside joke to begin with? This is all too confusing for me.

    Another picture for the archives: Tom Mahon 3-piece DB made from the light grey London Lounge Brisa. The shadow on the wall behind my left arm's been lightened to make the shape of the suit more apparent.

    That's a good looking suit.

    I still don't understand 3-piece DBs but I really like the whole outfit.

    What do you think of the Brisa cloth?

    It's just like a 2-piece DB, but they add an extra piece to make 3.
