    Was just going to say the same. I would love me one exactly like that but with wider lapels. Well done!

    Been following your blog @mossrockss for a few weeks now, never disappointed! Love the first jacket's fabric and second jacket's lapels!

    Thanks guys. It's actually kind of a boondoggle jacket to me in some ways. I had them order it in to try (from BB), and when I went to try it on, I had had a pint or two. It fit horribly in the chest, but I bought it anyway (dumb alcohol fueled decision). In order to make it fit, my tailor reduced the chest, which cost me 50% again what I paid for the jacket to begin with. He's exceptionally skilled at tailoring, but nonetheless, there are some vertical folds in the chest near the sleeves that remind me every time I wear it what I paid, lol.

    I try to think of it as "drape." :D

    So it goes.I am focusing on upgrading my wardrobe piece by piece with more expensive acquisitions, so this jacket is a more than adequate fall/winter/early spring jacket to rotate through in the meantime. #menswearproblems

    Oh, that's a BB jacket? I think I remember it not long ago in a recent collection. I didn't buy it when it was out, not because I didn't want it, but because I had other priorities. Regardless of the fit issues (yes, let's just call the folds "drape" [​IMG]) it looks good on you.

    I wonder how much time @VictorSFreturn takes in the morning to decide what he's going to wear and get dressed! Consistently great fits in a broad range of style and formality!

    Some of us are closer to 70 but still think that we are closer to 12.

    Also middle age doesn't start at 40 for crying out loud, unless you plan on dying at 60...

    Start from 20 (When you are completely grown) and subtract that from your projected age and divide by 2. I plan on living to be 120, so 120 - 20 = 100. 1/2 of that is 50, add back in the 20 years and my middle age will start at 70. [​IMG]

    So Roy you are still a young man not yet into middle age.

    Definitely one of my absolute favorites from you, @sugarbutch . Well done. Are the shoes black, or do they have hints of red in them? Sure looks like it on my monitor.
