    Noodles continues to demonstrate that delayed gratification/patience is not his strong suit.

    So as I was taking these pictures, I realized that I had on the top (first of three) button the first time I took the picture. Idiot.
    So here is a new pic with better angle and the middle button...buttoned.
    Still order the 40R?

    Lulz. I was wondering why it looked so high. But yes, still suggest a 40.

    I'd want to see the 40 first. The tiny bit of pulling at the button could probably be addressed with minor work at the side seam, no?

    Am I missing something? Buttoning looks to be the same in this pic as in the previous one--middle button is buttoned. Maybe I'm the dummy now, but I'm not seeing it.

    I'm with ya AJL. Rudals you had it right in the first pic. Relax, count to 4 inhale, count to 4 exhale.

    I think I need to take a step back from work and focus on what I am doing in SF. If you look at the first pic, something is off judging by how the lapels fall. The lapel to my left is higher. But I don't think that is the case in my second pic.

    Rudals, do you use your trousers very low on the waist?

    Omgosh...I think I am having a picnic attack. This would be the second one on SF since the infamous navy tie on navy suit meltdown.
