    :)

    I saw him live in The Hague and Paris, about ten years ago. Great. Great.

    Holy shit, you saw him twice?![​IMG]

    I haven't been able to see him once -- mainly because he hasn't toured Australia in 30 years, and has said that he doesn't really plan to for a while which sucks. If I had the cash, I would just fly to the US and catch him there.

    Almost three times. I travelled to Berlin to see him for the third time. Arrived a day before the concert, but got so sick on the day of the concert that I had to stay in the hotel and missed the concert. : (

    Nooooooooooooooo. That's the worst luck, dude.

    But still, you've still seen him twice. When he eventually comes to Australia, it'll be so hard to get tickets, I'll probably miss out anyways.

    I really like this look (especially the darker coloured khakis), however I think a longer jacket skirt would create a more balanced aesthetic for your body type.

    I figured out why my previous fit looks like hammerpants.

    Apparently the lens on my phone is a slight fisheye, and kinda bulges the center out. The missus is holding it at waist height so from my knees to about my nipples looks deceptively bulged. try to ignore that please, the pic quality is better than the actual camera. First pic is more true to color. Shirt is grey/blue windowpane.

    Thinking pants need let out, possibly a slight taper (though I tend to taper all my pants, so please tell me if they don't). They're RL cavalry twills, and I think the proper fit should be a very slight break and substantially less tapered than the rest of my casual pants tend to be. I suspect shirt needs tapered a bit more (figured ralph laurens athletic cut would be enough, but no) and sleeves need shortened about 1-1.5" as well.

    Shop for some pants in H&M, they will fit you better and won't break the bank. Get some custom made shirts, like from moderntailor.com. Feel free to take pictures and send me a private message; I will let you know what needs to be adjusted for future orders. That's what I'd do if I were you. Cheers.

    Mr. Lippman: It's come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
    George Costanza: Who said that?
    Mr. Lippman: She did.
    George Costanza: [pause] Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorence on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.
    Mr. Lippman: You're fired!
    George Costanza: Well, you didn't have to say it like that.

    TYVM. I pretty much got these pants for the weight, button fly and suspender buttons (also the ass patch) and they were so cheap (secondhand) I couldn't say no. I really need to start doing mtm shirts, the only thing I've found that fits me in more than two areas is Tyrhwitt, but they're too big around the middle, and they're nearly as expensive as MTM...

    I'll definitely flood your inbox when i'm cashflow positive again, thank you!
