    That's practically the silhouette favored by Style Forum, except the jacket is
    longer, which I prefer.

    Lets see...

    Threadbearer is 3rd from the left in the navy DB with Urban Comp over his left shoulder.
    Manton in the light gray 4 button with arms akimbo.
    % seated.
    Acridsheep waaay behind Foo, inappropriately wearing Photograys and open necked as usual?
    Spoo to Manton's immediate left in the classic Judas Iscariot pose.

    On further review, I now realize that Spoo is conversing with Señor Corbera. Who else would wear such a light sport coat over dark trousers so well? The shoulders and total absence of divots are dead giveaways.

    He never asked if that un-buttoned button "should always be buttoned?", "can I unbutton it if I need to?", "can I leave it unbuttoned?", or even "is it sprezz?"

    He just needed to pop it to take out his cigarette case or lighter, and so he did.

    He'd probably kick all our asses if he knew the sort of holy war this sort of pic could ensue on here.

    Committing style just by doing it. Awesome.

    ps - jetted pockets, too? Damn!

    Looks like it was designed to be worn as a 6X1 to me.
