    Thanks. The yellow shirt was bold, but it felt nice and I figured, worst case was that somebody on here would want it -- but I think I'm holding on to it.

    Only when I've forgotten rule one of #menswear: Don't throw your shoulders all the way back.

    The SC sleeves are too short...How much fabric is there left in the sleeves?

    About an inch and a quarter-enough to make it about right. I knew they were too short, but living in Florida we don't get too much opportunity to break out the tweed, so it's a low priority in my large tailoring backlog.

    Maybe I should rethink that though-this is the second time I've worn it this winter-the first time two weeks ago I wore it to a nightclub and three times women came up to me, complimented the SC, and started a conversation. :p
