    Still, Lagerfeld wasn't doing bad for himself.

    And, in any case, we're kidding ourselves. All of these guys surround themselves with the most flawless tail...only to take it in the tail. As they say, different strokes for different folks!

    Chris generously offered one of his coats for dissection yesterday and I forgot it in his shop.

    Doh!

    I always like this Despos number that was posted on AAAC a few years ago:

    Love the 1-button peak lapel and the glen check DB. I can't figure out how to re-host them?

    It seems Chris favors a more structured shoulder (roped?). I'd like to hear if Aportnoy's stuff is softer constructed like his Raph's that he posted. Either way Chris cuts a damn fine jacket.

    All my Despos pieces are made with zero shoulder padding and are extremely soft. Chris cuts a helluva soft suit if that's your pleasure.
