    I'd love some feedback on the fit of this jacket. It's an Oxxford one I bought through B&S. Also, I went with a white shirt today, but now I wonder if light blue would be better. Thoughts?

    Or: Big boy's games; big boy's rules.

    I like this guy... Reminds me of myself when I was a little crazier.

    Thanks guys, I do too - pretty happy with the way they turned out.


    Thanks - great suggestion - I had my pheasant tie in hand this morning, but I thought it might be too busy with the check shirt.


    Thanks, yes this is about my 5th pair.


    Thanks, bud.

    Thanks for the thumbs up too - @EFV: I think your ties look pretty awsome too. Care to discuss tradsies?

    I predicted that this would come to pass in the Euro zone.

    Damn French.

    You sure you don't want to hear anything about the fit of the trousers?

    You know, I almost asked that question, but I know the answer. I've lost some weight, and new trousers are definitely in the plan. I'm not a skinny guy, though, with a fairly big butt and thighs. "Skinny" cuts don't work well for me. Can anyone recommend trim, but not-too-trim trousers I should try?

    Aren't you a part time police officer? Probably best not to send out death threats to a simple drunk on the internet then...

    I'm also not a fan of skinny cuts. But straight leg trousers work fine for me and probably will suit you too.

    In the meantime, you can easily get your tailor to slim those down a little bit. It'd be an opportunity to find out where your comfort level is.
