    Reiss suits , in general, do not look bad at all but you're just getting what you're paying for in terms of quality.

    I guess so lasbar, as they aren't expensive per se, but I expected more from the 2 I bought.

    I think it can be a very stylish shop some seasons though

    TDK, the suits are handed down by my father: I wasn't that tall in the 80s

    The sleeves measure between 24 and 25''; despite my fondness for this sartorially dubious quirk, I submitted a few to an alterations tailor today to reach the magic 26''

    The man, the suit, or both [probably]?

    Does not his suit emanates "I am virile an powerful" and not "I am Dandy and love the clothes?"

    His suit is a perfect match for his botox.

    A great man who can mix dentistry and sculpture at the same time.

    Very avant-garde.

    I still find him amusing but I do not have to endure his antics like joking about Barack and Michelle Obama's tan or telling earthuake victims that living in a tent is like being on holidays.

    Interesting sleeve length Barims, it looks good on you. How far above the wrist bone are your jacket sleeves cut?

    I've just recalled, my Belvest suit has more or less the best sleeve length for me:

    I think it's 26". 40R sleeves made me aware that my arms are a little "overlong." I can more or less brush my knees with my fingertips from a standing position

    Visiting the alma mater?

    The Sixth Form college, actually. Not exactly Grange Hill, eh?

    Saw this photo today of Mohammad Ali Jinnag (Father of Pakistan) with Mahatma Gandhi (Father of India) in a book. The picture is from 1939.

    Jinnah's Db looks so good

    Compared to Gandhi , everybody can look sartorially advanced...

    On a more serious note , it is nice to see a 3 piece double-breasted suit...
