    ^^^^

    You done fucked up on that one.

    But then again, you do live in NO. I'm sure you'll find an opportunity to wear it.



    We will see. It is obnoxious, but we will see HOW obnoxious. There is always Halloween. [​IMG]

    Those are some pretty wild pinstripes. I'd wear it anyway. I'm pretty obnoxious, myself.

    There is something with this jacket I can't get over. The button spacing/ position and pocket placement just doesn't jive with my aesthetic sense of a DB. Maybe white pearl buttons would help.

    Yeah, they are pre-owned C.B. era suits. This crazy one lands tonight, I am curious to see it in person. I may put it on and take a pic. The last one was in perfect condition and this one appears to be the same. They had some absurd price on this one, $1900 or something. I submitted a low offer and they took it. Probably should have submitted one even lower. But, hey, I was drinking and honestly just trying to be a dick....I never thought they would take it. Now, I own it. LOL.

    I should put a breathalizer on my phone and my computer.

    I dont` think it was really the number of buttons that was the problem. Maybe you should of just tried different buttons (and placement). Does it look any good buttoned at the top?

    On a second look it is the shape or lack of shape of the waist that spoils this jacket. The waist is undefined and what shape there is is too low. A little shape at the waist while raising the waistline and trimming down the bit of flair in the skirt and I'll give it 2 stars. Too bad the buttonholes aren't in line with pocket or the pocket was lower and inline with the buttonhole.
