    Looks like a car coat or peacoat IMO. Are you wearing another jacket underneath?

    I have a Rubinacci jacket underneath, sort of like a corset.

    Jacket length comparos here.

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

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


    but gandhi had it, the drape

    It only looks blousy because all the chest hair lofts the shirt outward. Like goose down.

    Has this unabashed Oxxford 1220 prototype been previously referenced? (Had one read the entire thread one would have exhausted one's daily ration of ChapStick.)

    That houndstooth orgy is rather Tom Ford.

    I like how clueless these high-end American companies are.

    Honest question, how in the world isn't oxxford bankrupt? Boggles the mind...

    It sort of reminds me of those British companies that were headed by noblemen--run at massive losses with no business sense.
