    Justin, always a slippery slope for me when it comes to suppression as I resemble and upside down Dorrito in general. Appreciate the feedback! I am going to
    Ping, What color shirt would you like to see? I had tried a nice sky blue on prior, but went with the maroon gingham as I was off to a lounge and felt the gingham was a bit more "trendy".
    You are absolutely right about the pents. I normally wear Walts for this exact reason, but those moles are so damn soft [​IMG] After studying to pics, your'e right, the gap is far to great.

    A glorious day to be a Michigan Wolverine! I found a way to insert the first phrase of the "The Victors" into the bass line of the hymn tune AUSTRIA.

    I don't think that's the issue. The pants have too low of a rise and the camera is up high making it look top-heavy.

    +1. I am a top heavy person due to broad shoulders and weightlifting, but I agree, I think the suppression looks a little more extreme because of the angle.

    southernstyle, I'm sure you've been asked this before, so I apologize. What's with the safety pins being stuck through lapels, ties, etc?

    southernstyle, you might not have noticed but there is a safety pin stuck in your ties. Better remove it before it hurts a kitten!

    It serves the same purpose as a tie clip.

    I think I would prefer the incongruity of a safety pin over a tie bar or tie clip. I wear neither, but if it did (and didn't already own a bar), I'd ask for recommendations as to where one gets high end safety pins.
