    Also, note this snippet....

    "Stompanato was well-known to have been abusive, extremely jealous of Turner and had previously pointed a gun at actor Sean Connery, her co-star in Another Time, Another Place, only to have Connery take the gun from him, beat him and force him from the movie set."

    Bond, even before he was Bond ;-)

    There's a depiction of Stompanato in the movie L.A. Confidential, where he's getting his nuts squeezed by the hard-assed detective played by Russell Crowe. Pretty classic.

    Exactly, one of those "this tie is great! And its on sale" moments. Although, I think a Brown suit as @Sander suggested would be a nice fit.

    Why does tie-tucking get 23 thumbs?

    Hey guys, I'm relatively new here and I know this was likely hashed out before, but I'm really curious if hands in suit jacket pockets and ties tucked into pants elicits the same strong (relatively) feelings in others as it does in me? I know some like it but I wonder if I'm alone in my dislike.
    Thank you and to the gentlemen who like to have their pockets and ties safely tuxked away, I mean no offense!!

    True, but will I be alone or will I have company? Caustic, are the pockets on your SCs open? Do you use them? Is your tie tip stuck in your pants? I absolutely do not mean for this to sound confrontational, I am asking cause I'm curious. In other words, Is there any chamce tomorrow's fit will have ypu with either hands in the pockets or a tie in the pants?

    I wouldn't tuck my tie in, and I rarely use the pockets, however it doesn't bother me when I see it.
