    I would look for Manton pics, chances are if you see him in a DB, it's by Raphael.

    We have a 5'2" member here who pulls them off with panache, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    That's the perfect build for a db suit, IMO. If you weighed 250 pounds, then erhhmmm.....probably no.

    What the fuck is all this shit about optimum weights for a DB suit? If you want one, get one.

    Double breasted is the most adaptable look in men suiting history

    My pleasure......

    Sadly the major outlets nowadays doesn't do much nice DB suit, and virtually no DB blazer or fancy sport coats....

    I don't understand why people find DB fussy as you put on your buttons and thats it
