    ^ Only works on the tall and thin though.

    As opposed to the navy DB that works well on tall and thin AND those 4'6" and 300lbs?

    what a Goober, he is wearing a BD with a DB [​IMG]

    BTW, that DB is actually pretty bad. Bad lapels, bad pick stitching, buttons are off. doesn't fit him that great but it's most likely RTW.

    I'm sorry, are you trying to fit as many mistakes as possible into a single post?

    Would look better with a BD.

    no, there is already a threak for that (sartorial mythbusting), I just think the person that mentioned that it was the best navy DB was confusing a good looking, fit, stylish young man in a suit with a stylish suit.

    For those who want to go "all the way:"

    Can we see a pic of the coat? It sounds intriguing.

    For you and AlanC who had expressed interest in my 12/6 DB:

    I do have the missing button.

    I keep thinking of the line from QUADROPHENIA: "tight, buttoned up, know what they're showing."

    I thought that kid wore bespoke.

    Cut that necktie cut into two of them and the widths would be about right.
