    Yup. He told me how to do measurements on the trousers.

    Oh the drama in my SF life never ceases.

    Me too. But I guess we need to store our enormous intellects somewhere, right? Apparently it's a biological indicator of social dominance too, which is why beautiful women agree to marry us. Don't knock it.

    I actually don't know how my wife looks to other people and don't really care.
    But she is the most beautiful girl in this world to my eyes.

    In fairness, Sloth from The Goonies and The Elephant Man had a big head as well.

    I don't know what the "Goonies" are. But John Hurt shagged my aunt, and she was fine back in the day. He was called Vincent Hurt then. (Movie trivia geeks - you're welcome).

    get the suede. before i had a suede belt i wore my suede shoes with a similarly colored calf belt, but now that i have a suede belt i cant imagine going back.


    no.



    oh FFS. the formosas are fantastic and are not a "full" cut. also, you can always have Will Fields nip them a little bit and give your jacket a little more shape. i did that with one of my formosas but i left the other as it came.

    once you get yourself into a great looking suit you will understand. all this over analyzing is not helping you at all. too many voices too much noise.

    Hey all,

    What do you guys think of this fabric for a casual suit that could potentially be used as separates? Sort of like what @Claghorn does?

    luv, no on the suit separates. Too worsted and shiny. Shouldnt be used interchaneably as a blazer

    You need a fresco, hopsack, etc or something with texture. No fine worsteds

    i like the fabric, but, like jrd, i like some kind of texture on a navy SC. pick and pick, hopsack, crepe... something with texture.

    It is dark blue indeed. Doing well here!!

    Do you think it would make a fine suit that wouldn't be separates or just bad fabric all together?
