    For the record, I like @sprout2 and sprout1. Your posts are more on the witty side than on the annoying or offensive side.

    I say 'nope' on both of those Noodles. They both seem to bow in an unflattering way over the chest.

    Agree with EFV and Sugarbutch. Fit is funky. Blousy in the chest and tight in the waist.

    You realize that no one is sure whether you're serious, right? :)

    I also am in the camp of liking Iso's odd three piece. Very steampunk/cosplay, but it is at least well put together. You should enter it into the Friday challenge.

    Here are my thoughts on sock colors. There are four sock colors, five if you count black for funerals.

    1. Navy
    2. Burgundy
    3. Olive
    4. Brown

    Wear 1 with everything, 2 and 3 with separates, and 4 with beige suits in summer.
    I think you just need 1 pair each of 2-4 and then 99 pairs of type 1.

    Sometimes these lifestyle pictures make me contemplate for a millisecond the potential joys of having a wife that you can buy meaningless baubles for and play dress-up with. Then I think about the 999,999 negatives and realize....nah.

    If your wife has that many negatives, you're doing it wrong.

    ...you first would need to find a female human being who likes you or that you like before all these premature worries.

    Yeah, but what if her shoulders are actually advertised on the website as 17'', but there turns out to be greater than a 1/8'' variance on her actual shoulders? Will the vendor reimburse me for the alterations fees at a plastic surgeon, or should I return outright? The problem is if I already cut the tags, then I'm SOL. I mean, I'm all for the handwork that goes into an artisanal product from overseas, but I think there needs to be more quality control. Plus, she has pointy knees.
