    Do you think it will fit Manton? I'll grab it for him as a gift. [​IMG]

    That Isaia black suit in question, the source of a 50 pages thread, is now marked down to $350. Â It's a big bargain if you can find a way to get use out of it.

    That's a good idea. I'll chip in. What's his size? Judging from his picture, my guess would be 42L? Once we buy it, he must wear it during day time with non-kissing sleeve buttons and we'll send pictures of him wearing that suit to Dr. Bresch.

    See, Manton, your not all alone out there in RulesVille. We're all pulling for you. Perhaps you can open the package at the Regency on the 5th. We'll get a digital video camera, a broadband connection, and arrange with J to do a live feed ....

    Is anyone in the known universe still interested in this topic? This horse is not just dead; its bones are dust.

    The horse may be dead, but we shall never forget him.

    The dust of the horse's bones cries out for peace, for its well-earned eternal rest, but we cruel sadists cannot let it rest. For shame!

    Well, considering what Trenditional has posted over at AA, we could revise the question to include, 'Is it okay to wear a black shirt with a black suit?'

    Of course it is. It's almost required. Add a white tie, and you're there, baby!

    see Manton, three more posts already.

    1600 more on this and you will be right back where you started from.

    soooo...is the US repeating its Vietnam mistakes in Iraq?
