    OK playing for realz - I'm guessing something very CBD, i.e. SB - not DB, grey or navy, no patches.

    How am I doing?

    Navy house fresco suit and a blue tweed jacket.

    Nope! I already own the latter and the former isn't possibe since all Rubinacci frescos are actually hopsacks or figments of TepDoc's imagination.

    Let's put it this way: Manton is extremely concerned.

    I am concerned about his prudence, not his sanity.

    So I'm pretty close?

    Basic mid-grey worsted SB suit with flap pockets?

    Solid guesses.

    I'm touched either way. Would you say the thing you're concerned about will turn out to be a slight misstep, or an epic failure--and with respect to both RL and SF contexts?

    You are more right than wrong, but still solidly wrong. Also, there are two.

    No, I was never able to get my hands on the stuff. Anyway, I think Manton would be less concerned about that than what I picked.

    I just think it can wait. It will be a fine looking garment.

    My other dream suit is a cream linen DB. That's already got to wait a long time. I can't wait for all my dreams to come true.
