    That was pretty unnecessary.
    The occasional ad hominem is de rigueur here; I am rather used to it. Of course, the fact that they're Shuron clones isn't helping the "coolness" factor, as the Ronsir frame screams 1950-60s - but that's exactly what I was going for. In other words, lasbar's comment is pretty much mission accomplished.

    Foo,

    That collar gap actually looks like a shadow to me, probably from the light above the mirror in the bathroom.

    I like the wide spacing on the buttons better myself, but I like the fuller cut chest area, is that something that is achievable by a competent tailor to a RTW suit?

    You're absolutely right about that one.

    I don't even know what I have posted such comment in the first place.

    My sincere Apologies for my snark.

    I like that and I'm not a great double-breasted fan.

    I only like them in flannel.

    I'll get a few more shots up in a bit. Still basically feeling terrible and without much excuse to leave the house. Except the BB Outlet clearance sale. [​IMG]

    I think the reason why I find that coat appealing is the buttoning point and how the lapels roll there. I like the added perception of length that is not east to find in RTW DBs. I wonder how it looks on a person instead of a dummy.

    anyone notice the double-breasted pinstripe suits in The Aviator? beautiful suits, a bit baggy-cut due to that era but very nice. anyone knows which designer was for the suits?

    That's the problem with what I call uber pinning.

    Sometimes some great suit jackets look suddenly very ordinary when worn by a human being instead of a dummy.

    The lines could be very different even if this suit is looking very attractive .
