    I like this overall, but I just don't get the appeal of shoulder extension. It looks too big to me.

    I think that LB shrunk a bit into is jackets...like il vecchio.

    It's part of that old fogie charm to which one might aspire, but never gain until the grim reaper is within sight.

    Maybe LB shrank ... But every time I see a coat with significant shoulder extension, I think "That's gonna look broken down."

    If you really want that look, I find that buying a coat one size too large will give it to you in short order.

    LB in his prime in 1960, with his horse that he called Wildfire:

    In later years, there was a song about the horse.

    Tomasso didn't tell the Wildfire story, and the story has more impact with the white horse.

    Amazing! How do you even get your leather gloves to look like that naturally?
    Prolonged use. You can speed it up by rubbing your gloves against your nose, but that is a bit too mucky for my tastes.

    Some oil on the finger tips daily for a few weeks will make the same thing happen

    Wearing one's gloves from time to time might help.
