    Speaking of NMWA, I was just there, and I'm tempted by this 3-piece Eidos:

    It was good to meet David, Greg, and Kyle. You should give these nice guys your money.

    It's a really nice suit, but the rise of the trousers is a bit skimpy for my taste. The cloth is fantastic. I'm leaning toward passing because of that, but now I know that I can wear their SCs. Which is, I guess, both good and bad news...

    At present, it would seem that way. We can only hope that he will gather himself up, and return after sometime.

    I know I will incur the wrath of the cognoscenti, but I dont think that cut flatters you SB.the buttoning point looks awfully high and the lapels very short ( albeit wide). Ok gents, give me your worst....

    I can say only... the picture doesn't really capture it well. That said, your comment about the lapels seems valid. If you don't like this shape, there you go. I happen to like it, but understand someone else might not. The buttoning point is just about perfect, the sweeping fronts do make it look higher, though.

    Too late, Kulata! I like the short, though. Covers my ass but gives a bit more length to my legs. That's a big deal for men of modest stature like myself.

    Nice to meet you too - I think the celebratory Madison Bumgarner Giants cap would have really completed the look of that 3-pc.

    Americans seem to favor my mtm stuff to my B&T stuff. I don't know if it's the cut/style or if my B&T stuff is generally a bit more esoteric
