    Manton has sold me on the Blazer Suit. Yfyf, Parker, TeddieRiley, and others have sold me on Chan.

    All that's left to decide now are some stylistic details. I lean toward what I've called the Half-iGent.

    What would you do, and why? All thoughts appreciated.

    Edit: Oops! I just realized the poll says "Three button" for full and half igent. I meant to say "three roll two"!

    There's really only one option: the full iGent. If you're gonna do it..... do it. [​IMG] Though I think pleats are a matter of preference and cuffs should be proportional to your height. You could probably get away with the 2" size. Being shorter, I go for 1.75. In general, I think the the 3-patch pocket makes a better "blazer".

    This is how I'm (currently) planning to do it as well.

    The two inch trouser turn ups fad is ridiculous. Why do people like it? Are you all 6 foot 5 +?

    Quarter-iGent, but sans cuffs (so I voted 'other'). I have this in grey and am planning to order another in navy.

    With my body type and personal tastes I would go with a three patch pocket jacket, slim flat front pants with at least 2 inch cuffs...sometimes I like to do 2 1/4 inch cuffs. [​IMG]
