1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

Even Ralph gets it way, way wrong at times

    Other than the obvious NBA draft thoughts, the other thing that came to mind to wear with this would be one of those short sleeve dress shirts Flusser is recommending now (but only is you have sexy elbows, of course) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....95&rd=1

    I think this was from 2001 - the PL runway show was full of these. They were horrible then and still are today.

    It has an interesting Edwardian feel to it, which is what RL was going for that season, if my memory isn't playing tricks on me again.

    I don't have enough money to buy costumes, though, so I certainly wouldn't buy it.

    Do I just have really bad taste?? If you lose one of the buttons, or perhaps just don't button all four (.), I think it would be a rather nice suit. Not something to wear to a meeting with conservative clients, but really I don't see what's so bad about it.

    It would make one look like a great brown refrigerator, with some circular magnets stuck to the front.

    That particular double-breasted item was featured in a spread in Arena Homme Plus Fall/Winter 2004.

    Is anyone still wearing double-breasted other than the armed forces?

    I think the suit is charcoal not brown (description calls it black). But, I see what you're saying - it won't show much shirt and tie when worn I suppose.

    Well that, and it completely fails to suggest any sort of shoulder breadth or hourglass shape
