    FTFY

    Sell the RLBL and the Galaxy.

    RLBL is too tight.

    Galaxy has an atrocious high button stance

    The Samsung Galaxy suit should just be memorialized. It's my wedding suit and it was a gift from the father in-law. What do you think my wife would do to me if I put it up for sale?!

    ...and yes, you were right all along. I is dumb.

    That Formosa looks so much better that, to echo Murl, you're out of your mind if you just go by how it feels putting it on.

    Pics, with proper shirt, shoes and belt: front, side and back, good lighting straight on etc.

    Murl points out some basic features, but one to mention in addition are clean lines especially from the seat downwards, a feature generally botched in RTW.

    Hard to tell from Murl's picture but his trousers look to fit excellently along the leg in the front, slim but not overly slim. It is amazing how well Formosas fit him.

    On another note: crazy last night in Berlin. Quiet then pandemonium, then 7 minutes of breathless disbelief, then 10Xn (add your favorite exponential) pandemonium. Kind of cool to be here for the first world cup trophy for a united Germany.

    Congrats to Deutschland!
    Now they have 4 championship wins. They got so close so many times. I can't believe the gov't will be so willing that they would invest and build a practice facility in Brazil to prep for the World Cup. That is some smart investment.

    My mother country(?) got knocked out in the group stage and there were pix of players celebrating and so we fired the head coach...again. It is absolutely hopeless for us. Asia should not get 3 tickets, they all just suck and bring down the level of football. It's like letting a store sell both RLPL suiits and H&M suits.

    Noodals, wait a couple of months and then if you still feel the Formosa jacket is too roomy (and after running it past your brains trust on this threak), you might consider having it taken in just a tad along the side seams. Not too much though, as this could cause the quarters to flare, which might put you back in pear-shape territory.

    Folks, I have an opportunity to pick up this Italian shearling bomber jacket at a 70% discount:

    Please ignore the other clothes, I vas on mein vey home from verk.

    Colour is a dark olive green with a fairly soft nap to the suede. It looks like it fits beautifully, but it feels tight. This is the only size available (48). I usually take a 50. Other jackets from the same brand in a size 48 seem to fit well while their 50s tend to be a bit roomy on me.

    I do really like the style and the colour, and it's winter here in Orstrilia. Thoughts? Does shearling stretch a little after time?
