    i dont know if im sexist but im definietly sexy.
    okay so lets not arrest people for what they havent done yet,lets arrest them for what they have done.oh wait,they did!
    about 40 different cases,are you going to ignore that?
    so your only excuse for that is that it happened 8 years ago so its okay? i just dont understand your logic.
    so you are saying that 40 convictions 8 years ago is the same as people imagining the fake moon landing and osamas death? well,i hadnt thought of that,it all makes sense now.i guess everything at goodwill is just fine and dandy because the moon landing did happen and osama is resting in the indian ocean
    anyway no point arguing because you obviously are not very intelligent...my balls still resting on your face.have a great day gentlemen

    Er... No flaps. That's a suit jacket. May require a second opinion, though.

    If so, will you consider checking the store for the trousers? They may be in women's if not in men's.

    Interesting...damn, I thought for sure it was an SC based on the pattern. I skimmed the pants but didn't do an intensive search since I just thought it was an SC anyway. This store is pretty far from where I am, so I doubt I'll be able to make it back to check for pants [​IMG]. Thanks for the info though.

    "No flaps" means what? Besom pockets? Virtually all Armani I've ever owned didn't have pocket flaps. I spent about 10 years as the biggest Armani whore on this board and I can tell you that the absence of pocket flaps on an Armani made jacket does not necessarily mean it is an orphaned suit coat.

    Then kindly tell us what we need to know to verify one way or the other. *goes on-line to look up Armani SCs on Saks/Goodman's*

    I would argue that the vast majority of jackets, either SCs, Blazers or for a suit, made by Armani have besom pockets. I'm not arguing that it isn't an orphan. It might very well be. I'm just saying that one cannot tell that about an Armani garment simply by looking at the pockets. I've owned probably 30ish Armani suits and maybe another dozen SCs over the years purchased either at EA or the GA boutique and not one of them had pocket flaps. In fact, that was one of my main reasons for buying them as I find the flaps to look unfinished.

    Would there be anything on the inside tag which would state or suggest either way? Like, a mention of trousers or not?

    The other part of the reason I thought it was an SC is because it has an "S" under the drop, instead of a number...though I'm now thinking that S could be for "suit". Taking pics now, will edit with them.

    EDIT: Ok pics
