    Greg, you seem to underestimate how creepily I have been stalking the Formosa suits. I already knew about those two. That DB has been in stock for a while and if I had a good staple of suits, I would have purchased that instead of the SB. I will await the twitter alert on what I am looking for <insert evil laughter>

    Oh by the way, the trousers on 50R are pretty much the same as the 48R, except for the waist? Do I have to taper a bit if I get the 50R pants? The 48R pants that I inherited from Murl fit me well.

    The Flannel would be awesome. So much you could do with that suit and perfect for winter.

    82 is where its at!


    I have no need for a tux, but I want that Formosa tux so bad.

    akoustas - Congrats on the suit!

    Greg said it right about the "suit-ey" SC. ya'll.

    Lol Noodles. Getting caught is always worse than the crime. In any case, im sure if you dial back the SF time when you are around her, she will chillax. Also, since you are still beginning you are heavy on kops, as soon as you have a bunch of the things you want, the kops will likely get dialed back.

    Also, true story, Mrs. Noodles is a wonderfully kind and delightful person. I met her briefly with Noodles when he came to my store. I cannot fault her for anything, aside from perhaps who she married. AYO!

    Also, she does not think I dress like an old man. WIN!!!

    THIS! (Thx for the kind words on Mrs. Noodles).
    This drives me nuts! She calls me old-fashioned and looking old and all but when I showed stitchie in Formosa suits, she liked it! [​IMG]

    I am not going to go for the seasonal, ie flannel, stuff for now. I am too light in the staples dept right now. I need 3 season suits.

    A flannel suit bought today will be a wearable staple through the end of April.

    There will never be pushback against the blazersuit. It is a brilliant.

    Lol, what pic did you show her?

    Get a flannel, you can wear it F/W and early spring. Once it gets hot all suits are miserable.


    Yup. : (
