    I did. I had to sudden urge to break out a black book and listen to The Artifacts when I saw those.

    Just met with my shirt tailor, who I met with for a fitting on a shirt jacket/ safari jacket I'm having them make for me.

    I was a bit concerned at the fitting that the jacket's front was too "closed." That is, that not enough shirt was showing when the jacket was left unbuttoned. Not sure if I can use the term in this way, but it was as though the jacket's cut was too crooked for my stance. I mentioned this issue, but the head tailor said that's how safari jackets should fit at first. Throughout the day, he said, the jacket will naturally get pushed back and more of my shirt underneath will show. If too much of my shirt showed now, it would be cut incorrectly.

    I asked if this also meant that the collar would lift of my neck, but he assured me it wouldn't. It was somehow that the shirt jacket itself would just naturally get pushed back.

    I have two RTW shirt jackets, but none bespoke. I've never noticed them being too closed at the beginning of the day and just right at the end. Anyone have experience with this? This one is linen, if it matters at all.

    The button that resides just over my bellybutton?

    Currently the hardest working button in the business.

    Any thoughts on what's appropriate to wear for a skype interview where the work dress will be casual (science)?

    haha, I will definitely be wearing pants. I'll have to book a room at uni to do the interview in as I don't think my room at home looks particularly professional.

    hendrix, coat and tie to be sure. Tweed with odd pants and conservative tie if you want to be more academic/casual. But for sure coat and tie.
