    What, exactly, does this mean when it's not simply being used in place of my screen name?

    I suggest that we adopt a universal meaning for this. How about [​IMG] = Don't care? [​IMG]

    no, sorry.


    The [​IMG] means everything and yet it means nothing. It is what we must love about ourselves and what we must hate. It answers the question that has not been asked. It begins where it ends. It is not universal but rather, it is the universe.

    I greatly prefer a 2/3 roll to all other button stances, and it seems more "correct" for your tweedy jackets in particular; but I do think the one button jacket is a personal trademark of yours, like Alden Longwings. So I don't have a strong opinion one way or the other.

    I don't suppose that helped any more than a snarky answer would have.

    The one button coats do catch my attention by virtue of the fact that I am used to seeing mutliple buttons.

    Go with the 3/2. I do agree about creating more of a vertical line.

    I think that you can. Here's one of your SBs with patch hip out pockets, and one of my MBTs in the same configuration. Yours is a one button, mine is a 3/2:

    If you do this, make sure the top buttonhole is either finished on both sides or on top of the lapel, opposite of the way the other two buttonholes are done.

    Can this actually be done?
    Yes, although you may need a mine squad outfit in case one of the seams blows up on you.

    That's a new one.

    Is Foo tall enough to squeeze in more than one button?

    I think his top and bottom button will either be in the wrong place or all three will be too close together. I could be wrong.



    DAMN!!!! Even when you think you don't care about the [​IMG], the [​IMG] makes you care about the [​IMG]

    Too late. See that puckering on the lower front? Foo, get that pressed.

    ed, this is short of epic because you forgot to include 'qualitative'. The following should be made into the edmorel smilie:

    Hmm...maybe you're right. The classic location would line up the bottom button with the top of the hip out pockets.

    What can you do, though...dude is whnay.sized.
