    Butchy - I would totally jive on that... except that I hate jetted pockets on anything short of a dinner jacket.

    Now I have to go and check my SRM files! :) It's unfortunate you can't race track as that's some good watts/kg.

    Sorry for the digression. I'm working on getting some better pics so I can dial in on the proper suit size for me.

    That moment you're packing for an interview and you realize that the pants of your suit magically got a pretty big pull out of nowhere.

    I hadn't noticed this before so I have no idea when it happened, but I guess I'll have to live with it till march/april when interviews are done. Luckily it's on the side of the pants and I doubt anyone will notice unless they're 5 feet away and looking at that exact spot.

    Does anyone know what I can do to make it less noticeable? No idea what happened, but a new suit isn't in the cards right now which sucks anyway because the jacket is starting to get too small...


    FAKKKKKK!!!

    On that note, anyone have any ideas on cheap suits (yoox?) in a slim 42R?

    The suit that just got farked is a 41R BBGF and the jacket is starting to get small on me.

    Am I overreacting? I could probably live with this for the next few months tbh. I doubt anyone else would really notice anything that looked like anything other than a smudge. Atleast I hope not?

    I'll let you in on a secret. I've tucked the flaps, so you can imagine flaps and be content. :)

    I've found that I don't like flaps on anything.

    Haha! Didn't realize yangj was in bare feet. Good job! I might start doing my waywrn in bare feet. Who called me Frodo that one time I was bare feet?

    I checked my closet and there were no signs of bugs on my suits and shirts. I guess the cashmere sweater is just fragile.

    I guess I'm going to have to try a reweaving place in boston.

    http://www.yelp.com/biz/columbo-invisible-reweaving-and-reknitting-boston

    Edit: Just called the place. I'm going to go there next week after the next two interviews. She said she's running about a month right now and can expedite for an additional cost. I'm going to see how much stuff would cost. I've almost outgrown the jacket but should be able to get my money back if I decide to sell it later so I guess I'll just go for it...

    Looking for a little GNA about the collar on this Luxire shirt which utilizes the @Betelgeuse collar. Any thoughts on changes I should make? Collar height? Spread?

    Mate, FWIW I think the collar looks a wee bit high. That said it could be the angle of your shots. More importantly, I do like that tie! Who made it?
