    You can't blame @WillingToLearn, he's a big fan of Philly sports teams.

    Then he is already suffering beyond any harm anyone could wish on him.

    Lol. I want to state, for the record, I don't root for Philly teams. Might be a good time to get on the Sixers bandwagon though. Claghorn spreads misinformation and strange theories around here, evidenced by his corduroy stance. :box:

    @Cleav

    My first thought when I saw this was, "I didn't know Cleav had a stable" :-D

    Trousers look too slim, I'd like to see a wider collar on the shirt....

    I am sure Cleav adorns his steed in much finer tailoring than Men's Warehouse though.

    $3000? That wouldn't even buy you a three piece for a human from Despos.

    Please don't derail my giggles with reality.

    Horse is "dashing", get it?

    Suit is very country on the continuum, I would have liked to have seen a blue shirt here, white incongruous

    Jacket pocket placement is ridiculous.

    In fairness, in MW parlance, tailored may well mean as little as getting trousers and sleeves hemmed.

    My joke was in no way focused on the MW aspect and i certainly hope Cleav didn't take it that way. Quite the opposite, when I think of well dressed and the countryside, I think of cleav and the incredible fits he puts up on "the regular" and the goregous english landscape many of his photos capture. My thought was, if Cleav had a horse, he's be the best dressed CM horse around...

    No. They have a place, particularly with honey-toned jackets. Wouldn't be my first or even my fifth pair of trousers, but they can be worn to good effect.
