    My goal on the internet is to never post anything that will haunt me like this jacket has haunted FNB or the Moo in Socks picture has haunted Moo.
    I am very proud of this jacket. [​IMG]

    True. In general, I don't think it's fair to judge much because it is a fitting shot. Anyway, to my dilettante eyes, it appears to fit well--other than the apparent snugness.

    Anybody who is looking at the jacket is missing the message. The tie. Look at the tie!

    Actually, padawan, look at the shirt and tie.

    Apropos is simply proving the point I was making that few here understand tailoring. You can see the basting stitches, the lack of buttonholes and the shirt material through the wool.

    Unfortunately yes. I'm going to regret this but why?

    FNB only wore the shirt and tie to the fitting.
    Who knows what his actual suit was on that day.
    I sincerely hope it wasn't that combination tweed tough.

    But, since Hitchcock is bending forward, wouldn't we expect the skirt to spread out a little?

    No, I actually think [​IMG] is on to something...

    ...look closely. It seems to me that the evidence of a titantic battle is palpable.

    I would reply, but it's noon EST and I'm about to make a Gilt Groupe announcement.
