    You would actually get more odd stares here wearing a DB navy suit than wearing a DB plaid odd jacket. Simply because the DB suit looks more formal, more imposing.

    Are we actually talking about a business environment here? If so, I agree DB might be a bit over the top.

    I wore a brown flannel with crimson shadow stripe DB suit today. I was reminded by this thread to button both buttons late in the day.

    Are you certain this can be attributed to the DB?

    only happens with DB, so high correlation.

    Besides, I'm not THAT ugly

    I think DBs are fantastic but have to be made. Good RTW DBs are few and far in between.

    Getting punched in the face can actually look worse than it is. Unless you get caught off guard and your head rocks because your neck isn't anchored, you don't get KO'ed; all you get is pissed off enough to go stomp the other guy into the ground.

    Believe me, barring a facial knife scar, there is no better 'get out of my face' fashion statement than a black eye.

    As you were.

    I had a black eye once as a result of some drunken play sparring with a buddy. I've never gotten so much attention from women in my life as I got that week. I was tempted to get it re-blackened but my buddy demured.

    From the pictures I've seen, I wouldn't call you ugly at all. But you are hella tall.

    Same here. Its notable that my DB overcoat doesn't get the same reaction - I chalk that up to the current trend for peacoats and the like.
