    I own these. And stores I shop at carry pretty much every other item pictured in the first part of the thread. The suit is too much for me, although my Pastor wears suits like that. I like the dragon shoes except for the tips.

    Oh, and and I would wear that tie.


    i would need to see pictures of these on you before i believed it.

    Chest and throat hurt from laughing too much while reading this thread. Stuff of legends.

    These clothes are for men who want to "pimp their clothes" and the emphasis is on the word PIMP.

    Actually, less buttons is in now. When I first started buying suits, I hunted thrift stores. My first new suit was purchased for me by my ex and had 6 buttons. At the time, the more buttons the better was in. Urban stores had 7, 8 buttons suits. I probably still have one or two in the closet. Four buttons at the time was the minimum.

    Urban suits seem to follow the trend of conventional suits, but to the extreme. As two buttons became more popular than 3, urban suits now have 2 or 3 or maybe 4 buttons. If they have more, they're in some weird pattern like one of the ones posted with 3 sets of 2. It's not uncommon to see a suit with all of the buttons hidden. Little details, like back pleats and ticket pockets are more popular now than multiple buttons. I like both of those, as well as the contrast stitching, but the weird cuts and huge lapels are too much for me.

    I believe you are describing a double-breasted jacket. [​IMG]

    You'd think, but nope. I'll find a picture if I have time.

    They have single-breasted jackets with three sets of two buttons.

    And a waistcoat which I guess is one-and-a-half breasted?

    Would these be called triple monkstraps? [​IMG]

    It would be called a triple pimpstrap.
