    No, I was in the Army for a while and then I was a private contractor on the U.S. ambassador's security detail.

    Yeah, you're right. Continue on gentlemen. I wish Caustic Man all the best when he moves to , if I ever came to Kentucky, I'd want to get some Makers' Mark, talk to Rand Paul and see your collection, maybe do some helicopter hog huntin'. BTW, Revolver Ocelot is a bad-ass.

    Do you have a very particular set of skills honed over a number of years? Are you Liam Neeson!?

    Thanks for the compliments, gents.

    @Caustic Man, I thought a bit about the square, and basically my decision boiled down to this.

    Pretty much everything there is a cool color, particularly the square. Brown does not exist on the color wheel, and apparently there are cool browns and warm browns, and I would say that the brown grenadine I have on falls in the cool brown camp.

    On top of that, I felt the burgundy shoes tied it up nicely. I know stylistically there are not everyones cup of tea (pB is a general douche so no need to be concerned there), but color wise, I felt they were the best play.

    @ridethecliche, I would have liked to, but I have a hard time getting good pics with the coat on over the suit. I was also kind of hurried and didnt have the time to do it. Maybe another time.

    I'm glad you are seeing the truth now.

    I'd have to reserve judgment on that until I would be able to see a closeup of the fabric. As of right now, I would say that it isn't an unreasonable looking jacket. (Btw, see? Told you the subject would move on. *pew! pew!*)

    Look at the styling. It's a suit jacket. It gets a soft pass if it has patch pockets though.
