    I didn't think that someone would write a response nearly as long as my post, but you nearly succeeded.

    Interesting Chris, thanks for that. BTW, I saw Manuel recently and your name came up. He mentioned that he's known you a long time and that he thinks very highly of you.

    So what's the verdict on my gray suit? Unwearable? Should I find a shorter version of me and give them it? :(

    Do you like the fit? Do you have the money to buy a new one?

    I posted a SC here recently that got shot down (in a nice way :p ) but I'm not giving the thing away. Funny thing is I get quite a few compliments on it from strangers/colleagues. It bothers me a little knowing the shoulders are too wide and that the waist is taken in too much, but it is wearable.

    That being said some of my SC's are not wearable and fit me terribly, these I will be selling soon. Don't let SF rule your wardrobe, no one has the budget for that.

    Eason,

    I don't think it's unwearable. I would clean up the trousers a smidge - in both posts it seems a little bunched up at the crotch. After that rock it for any number of nighttime social occasions with sharp shirts and open collars, etc. etc. In other words, play with it's 'of the moment' fit - it's sexy on you. Not sure I could recommend wearing it to work or 'proper' daytime situations though - it's so trendy it's really more 'street wear' than anything else.

    Of course, that's just one opinion.

    It's stylishly short. It's too short for my tastes, but you may find differing opinions here.

    I am probably capable of that, and foo could of course exceed it by a factor of four.

    Should SF add word count and add it just below post count?

    I am a man of many posts, few words and almost no content.

    ^Yeah, my take would be similar. It's very fashionable, very of the moment. But it's not outrageous. It wouldn't be my first choice for an extremely conservative setting, but otherwise, wear it and enjoy it. For stuff like that, it's more about context than right and wrong.

    keep it. adjust the trous a bit though. its not classic CBD, but not unwearable. I think you can easily make it work.
