    Hi Patrick,
    I must be mis-understanding you on the Flusser rule, I am 185cm tall, if I read you correctly, the button point on my jackets should be at 92.5cm from the floor.
    On checking I find that almost all my jackets button at 110 cm to 112 cm from the floor. My trousers reach to about 105cm from the floor. Is there an error here???
    Am I that badly shaped? (probably)

    I don't think it is a hard rule. If the jacket looks good than that is all that matters.

    I don't think a fuller sleeve necessarily wrinkles more than a narrower one just that they can wrinkle in an unflattering way. I did a quick look around to see if I could find pictures that show what I'm talking about. I couldn't really find any that show the problem on a particularly slim guy but here are a couple of examples where I think a narrower sleeve would look better:

    But you guys are much more versed in these matters than I and I realize that I may be misunderstanding the problem I see in the photos.

    ^^^ Those are both bad examples because they are both generally poor-fitting. You need to look at something tailored well to understand. It is not a coincidence that good bespoke tailors tend to cut fuller sleeves than most RTW-oriented wearers are used to.

    I don't think that this has happened yet, but I could be wrong.

    How is the next Tweed in the City article coming along? RJ, whnay., and Nicholas Storey are all available for suitable ghostwriting...perhaps you can convince the three to band together on a new TitC article?

    I think that you need to grab them ASAP before they join the StyleForum Editorial Team..

    Just sent you a PM about that suit. Looks great, and I have some questions.

    It saddens me that you were not invited to contribute. It angers me that I was not.

    I don't think I have ever been accused of charming anything in my life, other than rich Jewesses. I am moved.

    Composition-wise, this is nicely put together except for the pocket square failure. Unfortunately, the square choice really destroys the outfit.

    I won't comment on fit since I can't tell much from the pics. But the lapels are tragic.

    What do you find tragic, mafoo? The gorge height? Or the pronounced stitching?

    in general, I think Timotune is well-turned out even if it's a little more on the fashiony/trendy side of the MC spectrum.
