    Why would anyone want a puppy-shaped cushion? Just get a real puppy, and sit on that.

    PSA: I continue to pick up new ties, so I'm going to try and implement a one in two out policy (which being realistic will probably be reduced to one in one out just stop at some point).

    Wanted to let people know here first. Feel free to PM about these or even other ones. Pictured below are 4 Drakes, 1 Kent Wang (cashmere herringbone)

    Looking on cell phone and just consumed an excessively large cocktail at my nephew's insistence, but that looks pretty good to me Noodles, esp. shoulders

    Looks great, Rudals. I suppose some are L and some are R? If so, the L is definitely better for you. Try on a Soho and Lazio cut as well while you're at it.

    @Rudals I'd say it's the first time I can remember when you've really managed to invert the "pear effect": your shoulders look strong, rather than weak and rounded. It's a good look for you.

    Embrace the fact that it is possible to have decent quality without being a big name lux brand and buy some SS. Those, in general, look better than many of your jackets post tailor, especially the L's. Like really good.

    Yeah, you look much, much better in those la spalla's than in any of your existing suits. It's a huge improvement. What size did you try on, the 40L?

    Doodals, those look great! And IMO the jacket would not need any alteration. Same question as the Face of the Monkey, are those "L's"?
