    Holy buckets....I feel like he flipped me the bird and held up a neon sign that says "My jacket and I want to tell you to fuck off." I am now stupefied in shame and confusion.

    AS, my wife has pronounced your outfit today to be "bold, but tasteful."

    Hi guys, from early week. FU-osity is not off the charts but then the blue bands don't really shout in this pic

    I can't tell you how much I wish that was a suit.

    I have no idea when I'd ever wear it, but that never stopped me before.

    Hips wider than shoulders a la oldog oldtrix is never flattering IMO.

    1) it's a picture of his torso; the accuracy of the proportions cannot be assumed

    2) if his hips are wider than his shoulders, there's not really much he can do about that

    I thought about getting matching pants, but yeah...no idea when I'd wear the thing as a suit and also I don't think the fabric (a soft cashmere blend) would last long for trousers.

    He may not but his tailor can. Extended shoulders and shoulder pads, it does give a pear effect right now.
