    what do you think of this suit?

    For me, it has a little too much going on - I would dispense with either the vest or the ticket pocket. However, YMMV and I may be a bit more conservative than is warranted. Also, you mentioned a 2B, but you know that this is 3 rolled to 2?

    are you marc grayson?

    No. I recall him from older AAAC days, but I am not. My recollection is that we were, in addition to many other issues, also separated by money - he had some and I do not,.

    Rule #1 of the internet, always fight your position to the death, even in the face of overwhleming evidence to the contrary [​IMG]

    Rule #2, when on the losing end of a fight with grimslade, simply yell out "sycophant!" to even things out.

    Also not the Marc who drank his own urine. Unfortunately, just a popular name.

    To determine styling, cloth, color, pattern etc., put the suit in context of how and when you will wear it. If it is for social/dressy purposes go for the peak, besom. If it is for daily use, keep it simple and versatile. Get the idea?
    Don't take every styling cue you have seen and like and create the over-designed suit. Then you would have a TF suit.

    Some people around here can't stop talking about themselves, even when they try to throw barbs at others.
