    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


    DB suits look great when they have been well cut by a great tailor...

    We 're still seeing too many ill-fitted boxy cheap DB on the market and that's the problem...

    To be fair ,I was in London 2 weeks ago ,in Mayfair to be precise, and I only saw 2 db suits all afternoon.

    I find the look to be timeless, but somewhat maligned by: boxy cuts, the "swing dancing" fad, and by David Letterman's bad habit of wearing his DB unbuttoned.

    I'll be posting some suits in the FS forum soon, including a solid charcoal gray LB Sartorial (made, I believe, by Attolini). For those of you who are a 40R and looking for a brilliant suit, that's one to consider.

    The boxy cut and the black db from the eighties are crime against sarotial humanity...

    I used to hate db because of the above...

    The single breasted suit has become the suit in the streets all around the world...

    Double-breasted suits are still suffering from an image deficit but the connoisseurs cherish them..

    Don't look like Rubinacci. Does Valentino sell suits as well? Whoever makes the suits,they fit him great,very good.

    Marzotto stepped down from Valentino to repackage Vionnet.

    Here's one pic of him that won't appear on Will's blog:
