    Which is why I didn't buy.... Red and Pink are tricky colors for me.

    yep, in the summer with some sun on my skin, it looks fine, but during the fall / winter there is no contrast.
    I'd walk around looking look like a giant pink pearl eraser.

    You know, I kind of like that. I don't know if I could pull it off, but it's certainly fun and different. If I were to get that, though, I'd wear the coat and vest with cream flannel trousers. The entire suit might be too much all at once.

    Margaret, you're mental. Narrow stripes only make me look thinner.

    Margaret, you're mental. Narrow stripes only make me look thinner.

    I'm only talking about the extremes; yes, a suit with prominent pinstripes that are especially closely spaced (1/4"?) would empasize the vertical. A suit with chalkstripes that are more broadly spaced (3/4") won't necessarily make a slender person look more slender or less slender, but just doesn't look as visually balanced as it would on a larger man. 1/2" spacing seems best. But that's just my opinion on single-breasted. Double-breasted seems to be a slightly different dynamic because of the visual line created by the prominent lapels with their strong diagonal lines (e.g, Fred Astaire).

    Of course, I could be completely talking out of my butt here. But I likes what I likes, okay?
