    Just as FYI, those jackets are CHAPS from Kohl's (Caustics favorite store).

    @Claghorn
    Agree on that Lazio. The pic still is online when you google "noodles lazio suit." And for the record, the TF suit fit me the best, I believe.

    Well then the question now is do I just pull the trigger on the Fxrmxsx sharkskin. Easy access and affordable

    Noodles. I recommend you do whatever will create the most entertainment value for this thread going forward.

    Your response is something that I have earned with my past behavior. So you can choose to take me seriously or to take me as a goofball living the Groundhog Day.

    Also, Noodles, in all seriousness, you have seen a lot in this thread and have a way better idea of what fits you and looks good on you than you did two years ago. If you like something, get it.

    Ha! I actually may have made such bad decisions 2 or 3 years ago. I guess I am finally learning from this thread. But I should be sent to NoKo if I did something that stupid.(Note: If you can afford TF at full retail then that's all good. Just saying it would be a stupid act for me).

    Yes, I guess I need to grow some and start making decisions like an adult. But just wanted opinions from some people. I guess I am too used to the good old days when my hand was held all the time.

    Ah, takes me back to about 900 Groundhog Days ago when we first met...and I gave you some unsolicited advice. That was also the time you became "Noodles". Of course, some people told me I was being harsh, and you weren't coming across that way at all. But I did reiterate it a couple of times.

    Anyway, stop whining Noodles. We still love you.

    Thanks for the kind words. :D

    @Claghorn
    Still bitter about not pulling the trigger on this. I am an idiot.

    It's all relative.

    But a picture sometimes tells rather fewer words than are necessary. I have a suspicion that when you move around in this jacket, the shoulder and chest might be a little wobbly. The are more casual, but did you try the Harris, Hudson or Havana? The Madison might also be worth a look if you like a DB. I fear the cheap and cheerful Livorno, which is wonderful, is not available in the US.

    Anyway, keep 'em coming. You have provided a great deal of entertainment over the last couple of years. I hope we get to meet one day and mock each other in person.

    Jacket looks too large in the chest and waist and sleeves are billowy. I would strongly recommend that Noodles avoid this fit.

    Well, if you'd stop shopping at Kohl's (which we now have photo evidence of).

    Noodles and I are not all that dissimilar in build. He's probably an inch taller, and doesn't have my barrel chest. Other than that - not too different.

    I do well in certain Formosa blocks. The SuSu Lazio cut works for me too. As does Havana and La Spalla. But not Sienna, for some reason.

    Noodles, I think you could do well with Lazio or La Spalla. The latter is pricier but has better fabrics and finish.

    I'm confused. I thought Noodles was going to avoid SF for 3 months while he did chin ups?

    Says the guy with 11 posts but joined in 2013? You must be doing a whole lot of chin ups based on your activity. I am still working out so don't worry.

    @Coxsackie
    Appreciate your feedback. The LaSpalla is too pricey for me. But I always knew we had a similar build so I have been keeping a close eye on you. [​IMG]
