    I saw this in the New York Post:

    Most likely not off-the-rack, and I bet not part of a rental stock. What do you think, custom? A few of the details make it a bit too much for the office, but I think it's a great look.

    Interesting. I wonder if the jacket is vented; and if so, how many. I also would not wear it to the office, I don't think I could pull it off at all.

    I'd certainly liven up the shirt/tie combo with some bold patterns and colors, but aside from that it looks quite nice. I especially love the neon yellow lining[​IMG]

    Because of the single button, or the vest?

    I'd wear that to the office, but I'm not a fan of bright linings.

    Too much cuff showing for my taste. Color of suit is nice.

    I used to live on the East Side of NYC near the Frick and it is really a fabulous place. I wish the newly weds well!

    Well I don't know if single button would go over well in most offices yachtie. For that matter, a three piece. I'm sure you can get away with wearing a lapelled waistcoat in offices that permit waistcoats at all though.

    The fact that is a single-button and that the vest has lapels. I might try to sneak a three-piece into my officewear if I owned one. I must be going blind, I didn't even notice that electric lining.

    Would look better with peaked lapels.

    I agree. But then I pose this question: Can you have peak lapels on the jacket and then notch lapels on the vest?
