    Wouldn't neurosurgery require a brain to work on?

    I need some more height and apparently you need slimmer hips - maybe we could do a group deal?

    Seriously, I have the complete opposite issue, which has just this morning revealed itself. Normally I have my suits and jackets made with minimal shoulder padding for no real reason other than comfort.
    What arrived today was a completely unpadded and quarter lined bone cashmere twill jacket which was absolutely perfect on me. My tailor suggested this after I spotted a sample of the jacket in his store and he said for once I should have it made totally unconstructed. I wish I had asked for this in the past although I don't think it would work on suits or lightweight fabrics.

    You're right, the collars suck. The green shirt really should never have been worn with a tie. It's a linen summer shirt, pretty casual. The other one, well, I'm not quite sure what happened, but it's a cheap shirt and probably won't stay in my rotation much longer.

    I think spreads and cutaways probably suit me better.

    Your new jackets sounds wonderful, hopefully we can get a fit shot in the near future.

    Tell me about it. I've given up trying to remind people that you've got to know what you're looking at, and too many people don't and just give thumbs to popular members and to to better pictures - not to better fits. It's not just a question of liking about a nice photograph, it's about educating your eye.

    Will do soon. If it looks half as good as everything you post I'll be happy.
