    Amazing! How do you even get your leather gloves to look like that naturally?

    I did it by playing with my peccary:

    For dancing, thinner sleeves can better show off the dancer's lines, where fuller sleeves would obscure them. I've seen costumes in construction for a ballet, and they were supposed to be modern business suits. They had the highest armholes imaginable, like shirts. Some of the Astaire pictures have comparably high armholes, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were made expressly for making him look good while dancing.

    +1 to that- I have friends that are professional ballroom dancers, and their suits fit like nothing I have ever seen anywhere.

    I like LB's pants length. He jokes that American's wear their pants too long and Europeans too short so he wears the mid-Atlantic length. That length will always work IMO.

    Velvet sport coats/jackets are "in" this season. I've seen a couple of guys sporting them but I must say that it takes a certain amount of flair to pull it off very well.
