    ace, not sure if his was intentional, but the uploader seems to be doing that to me a lot lately, regardless of the orientation its saved in on my computer.

    EDIT: he's also in australia, so he's upside down anyway.

    I like the outfit. It's nice to see a 1980's power broker look that's actually put together well. I rarely see collar pins look so good.

    Have you considered Oliver Peoples Emerson frames? A larger set of Rxs might suit your face better, or be more comfortable.

    Well, that's the dirtiest jacket and tie picture I've seen in a while...

    Read my post... not intentional. :)

    Right-side up's overrated anyway.

    Me too, glad I'm not alone in this. Mine are turning sideways quite frequently when posting. It's a pain in the ass.

    I liked it very much. Thought the trousers were just the right shade dark enough to be different but understand what you mean. Not sure I could get away with peak though. http://gentlemansgent.blogspot.com/

    Yes, of course, the statement is a bit subjective (though I don't quite see how a jacket can be so). My preference is for middle-of-the-road moderation (what some would claim is boring) in all the points you mention; but the three-button look, with only the middle button fastened, does look better technically and aesthetically in my eyes. I have never heard of any Rule of Three.

    For what it's worth, I also strongly dislike slant pockets on jackets and pleats and turn-ups on trousers. The streamlined, unfussy look of the late 1950s, before the slimline excesses of the early 1960s, is what appeals to me.

    Thank you for your comments. You must be an optician, noting your expertise in glasses frames. I've avoided larger tortoiseshell frames, as I am old enough to remember wearing them in the 1980's, and do not wish to return to the "bug-eyed"/Poindexter look of that era, though, truth be told, larger frames might be a shade more comfortable.

    +1 It's just a theory, after all.
