    I have the same problem with my DB waist coats. They "open up too much" (1st pic). I have asked my tailor to fix it but even after several changes it not fits perfect. What shall I do? I have to change body.

    @ Albert Hal

    Totally agree, it's actually put me off lower opening waistcoats. This is my only one and I think it will be my last.

    @Claghorn gets a thumb even though I consistently have concerns over the shirt choice. That said, I doubt he's going to change and I know I won't. [​IMG]

    I hate you. You looking too good everyday. I hate you.

    That museum pic should be unspoilered. But you also did a half-arse job in that photo. That statue is naked. [​IMG]

    I did a quarter-arse job in that photo - the statue is of a woman - but an impromptu sex change operation was not an available option in the gift shop of the museum, and Vienna is very old-fashioned - public nudity in museum spaces is generally frowned upon.

    Yes, but when it fits it looks awsome. Good luck!

    What issues (besides the collars...though this one is different from my normal one) do you normally have with my shirts?

    Sorry if you've mentioned this previously and I didn't catch it.

    You mentioned the collars but admittedly that's more personal preference. I tend to think they are generally too formal for what you wear, although that is not always the case. It occurs to me that you might be wearing a linen shirt in your last fit. If so, I retract my statement on that one in particular. The general sentiment stands. I usually give you a thumb, however, because your ability to pair colors and patterns is top notch.
