    Oh, how I miss those years. [​IMG]

    Edit: One more for good measure. I think this was 10th grade.

    ^^^ Needs to size down a jacket.

    I suppose, in the meantime, Alfa will have grown into the jacket and grown out again.

    Fun Thread.

    Black suit, overly structured shoulder and too many buttons done up - but that is a knit tie, I have a pocket square, this was actually bespoke (my aunt was a fashion designer in those days) and I had a matching white dinner jacket made as well. This is what I asked for on my 8th birthday and I think I never wore them beyond this day. Notice the shades in my left hand.


    An example of growing into the neck.

    Super thread, but as an Italian Americangrowing up on Staten Island in the 80's and 90's, my looks are less pimp, and more Gotti. Will post some once I scan them...
