The KGB is dead. Long live the FSB.
Those lapels are offensive no matter what time of year it is!
Second day of the school year.
Are the quarters on that jacket that closed or is it your stance? There also seems to be some bowing issues with the lapels, especially the one on the right. Plus the jacket looks a little too short on you.
A little short? The sleeves are the same length as the coat. A full body shot would be so hard to look at with this sort of fit...for me anyway.
School... are you a professor? Either way, I say it's not good for you to dress like this...
I am a middle school teacher. What's wrong with the way I am dressed??
The jacket is perhaps shorter than other jackets; however, it does cover my ass, as Phat Guido would suggest.
The quarters are probably a little closed. I'm also standing on my toes in front of my bathroom mirror. My ID badge is in the chest pocket underneath the right (my left) lapel. Because I had the summer off and spent it at the gym, I am much more muscular than the maker of the suit probably imagined a 38S would be. As for the jacket being a little short, I'm only 5'7...
It's been a bit.

noway you are a 38S if you are 5'7"... that's the problem. as for the bowing issue, see if you can get a local tailor to tigthen the lapel tape
In other parts of the world, Tahoes and Suburbans are viewed differently than in the USA where they can be seen at every street corner.
They're actually rare in Europe
I'm not following you, Rambo. It's a cream (or perhaps stone) suit. Or are you asking about something other than the jacket/slacks combo?
Yeah, they're pretty anemic. I found the suit on sale for a ridiculously low price at a time when I felt I really needed a summer suit. I wouldn't do it again if given the chance.
Nothing. (Unless, of course, your Principal feels upstaged.) Rock on, Teach!
Far too kind!
