    Thanks Chrono.

    And bona drag, my bags aren't going anywhere, they are my children. I love watching the leather age, the suede linings, scuff marks, all the character that leather bags acquire. And they're usually much more interesting than my outfits. Also, it wasn't expensive, I got a good deal on it.

    I don't think they're acceptable anywhere. Why are we talking about skid marks at 8 in the morning. Preguntas?

    many people don't like the blazer/untucked shirt look, i think it can work under the right circumstances (namely the right kind of blazer)...generally not something as "suit" looking as what you have. Sport coats are better...doesn't have to be loose and unstructured, but i don't quite think it works here because of the shape of the blazer.

    And a full on suit with untucked shirt is unacceptable.

    T under Shirt = bad, Full Suit + untucked shirt = bad (I second that from f2b) Arms seem too wide On the left side armlength looks just perfekt. BUT your arm is angled - so the blazer arms will be longer with your arms straight, right? Thinking about it - the blazer looks 1 full size too large.

    an undershirt is fine as long as it is not in plain view imo. If it is, i am getting visions of high school proms where people are going tieless and the spread out really wide collar making a "wings" effect over the lapel with a hanes shirt stickin out. Not a good look.

    SoCal, this is your most "Jil Sander" look to date. (no sarcasm at all)

    think that half jacket/half vest piece is working pretty nicely for you.

    oh yeah, and i can't speak for ftb, but i'm honored.

    Thanks, and to f2b.

    It is a bit big, unfortunately. Oddly that's how the men's shop/tailor outfitted me when I bought this around 95 or so. The trend might have been to fuller cuts back then. And I've lost some weight, too. These days I would definitely go shorter and slimmer than this.

    Okay, well, verdict's in. I guess I'm ditching this thing.
