    I'm sure it is.

    P.S. Does it taste like chicken?

    I had it barbecued in what I'm told was a traditional Swiss recipe. It was a bit like Ropa Vieja, but a little tougher. At the time I didn't know what I was eating and quite enjoyed it. If offered the opportunity I'd eat it again, but people tend to get leary of me after the first time I try to bite their steeds.

    The problem with the short coat is that they have to move the waist and buttoning point up to balance it effectively making it button across your sternum. Since you have long arms it really does look like you are wearing a woman's coat. I have nothing against short coats but if you're going in that direction back off on the waist suppression. Nothing personal, but it really does look silly.

    Carry on.

    Contrast with this picture taken at waist level:

    I like this a lot. but what do I know...

    the question is, does it cover your butt? pictures from behind might help resolving this issue.

    Covers the posterior just fine, C.

    No pics though.

    (I can just visualize myself explaining my actions to the missus: Honey, mind if I take some shots of my rear end for some other guys to mull over thoughtfully? :D)

    Could be the camera angle, but this suit looks too big. It's pretty blobby around the middle, and looks to be a bit long.

    You must be a member.

    There seems to be a lot of potential energy in this pose. If you were grabbing at your tie instead of your cell phone, this pic could be captioned, "Quick! Into a nearby phone booth!."

    hi guys
    I'd never come across a 3 roll 2 style before. This morning I nipped into a few suit stores and didn't see any, then looked on UK Ebay and the only ones listed are from American sellers. So, I guess its a style that never caught on over here. I'm new to this forum and I did wonder why there was several photos of that style, cause to me it looks odd, I've now read up on it, so that's one less thing I'm ignorant about but its not for me, I'll stick to 3 buttons but never with the bottom button done!! Now I'm off to polish some shoes.....

    Thanks, Pliny, and also for the nice comments in the thumbs-up. I really like this tie.


    I think the length is okay, but the suit is definitely on the loose side. I haven't had it taken in since losing a fair bit of weight last year. Still gradually losing more, so I'm holding off on the alterations.
