    In light of the relative coolness of most of the Northern Hemisphere, and the fact that the Southern Hemisphere is still in springtime, I thought that it was high time that we showed off our double-breasted suits or jackets. Suit or jacket is acceptable, fit must be worn this week, and I will take a volunteer to administer the poll, as I'll be playing tourist in Toronto this weekend.

    Go to it, gentlemen!

    On behalf of the inimitable @upr_crust please find before you your 'Get yer two tits out' - Double breasted suit or jacket Friday Challenge!

    Best,

    Cleav​

    Now this one should be manageable - i´ll play! Thanks for the setup, Crusty (safe travels!), i am pretty sure we´ll get to see some very nice fits.

    Though StyFo may disagree, I'm still clinging to the notion that I'm too short for a DB. Perhaps of more importance, though, I don't think I would feel comfortable in one - at least not yet.

    JCM, I think you would look splendid in a DB. Right cut and cloth and you'd be a winner all day! I have had the pleasure of meeting our host and can attest that at 4 feet 6 inches a DB suits him well!


    @upr_crust in light of my white lie ^ I will gladly, if you'll have me, administer your poll(!) on Saturday evening!

    First off, Cleav, you are the most charming liar I've ever had the pleasure of meeting :). I will leave the administration of the poll in your capable hands, while I am frolicking in Canada, and, for the record, I believe that I am only four inches taller than JCM (I am 5'9"), so yours was a fairly whitish lie, told in a good cause.

    This could be a classic challenge.

    I don't own a double-breasted suit or jacket, so I'll just be a spectator for this one. I will, however, be a very happy spectator I'm sure.

    I'm hoping @Claghorn will throw his hat in the ring. If I recall correctly he's got a dark blue one (what else? Duh ...) that's perhaps my favorite of all his jackets. Huntsman, perhaps? Can't recall.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    I'm unable to play either, but I anticipate some good fits. I'm especially eager to see some younger gents show that the under-40 crowd can pull off the DB.
