    Let's not get into a Current Event's discussion here. If you guys want to complain about the Wrold Bank, journalists, hardened capitalists, and liberal media bias, get ye to Current events.

    I'm afraid I have to agree with you. The older you get the crankier you get. I tend to dump everyone in the same basket but I don't really care much. Just call me a misanthrope.

    In that case, I suppose I should be much older.

    Hella cranky these days for some reason. Fak.

    want to compliment you on the lapels and the high gorge, which I like. But from the other shots- (could be the angle) IMO the shoulders don't suit you as well as a natural would- hell, I don't think pagodas suit anyone much unless they are tailored really well.


    AAS that jacket doesn't give u enough contrast IMO .... your micro check gray ( right) would be a better look, although that for a fit that casual even better sans tie and with a slimmer watch. Apart from that I really like it.

    Thanks for the kind words. This is one of three non-navy summer jackets I own. The micro houndstooth resolves to grey, but it's navy and cream which was off limits for the challenge.

    The jacket isn't pagoda (Formosa?), it's just shoulder extension. I think natural shoulders won't work well on his build since he has narrow shoulders and he should get structured jackets. To be honest soft shoulders really isn't for a lot of people and many will be better served with an armored English cut.
