    Maybe you were just made for them. Could also be the 'stache.

    New SF meme: "You have to be medwards to wear DBs."

    Could you post up some pics of said DBs, Medwards?

    I wonder if I have them in my SF DB pic cache.

    But also have this piece of very light gray linen that I go back and forth on whether it should be DB or SB.

    What would be the factors in such a decision? Should the fabric be of some weight in this matter?

    I would surmise otherwise. [​IMG]

    My tailor just shipped out a 6x2 Minnis flannel chalk stripe to me in FU brown. Can't wait to get it. I'll probably get the blue version of this Minnis chalk made up as a 6x2 as well. - B
    'bout friggin' time too! You wanna slip into that bad boy as soon as it arrives and get some piccies posted, stood in front of the rotunda of course. Just received some samples from Fox Bros by the way...

    12SB:0DB.

    I have an irrational aversion to DBs. For some reason they are associated in my mind with badly dressed middle-aged pot-bellied men, which is something I am not (at least not yet). 2011 sartorial resolutions will include commissioning my first DB suit.

    I have about 12 suits and none of them are DB, they are starting to make a bit of a resurgance lately so if you have your eye on one go for it. I'm just not into that style of suit personaly.

    Well, this is a welcome reversal.

    When I started having to wear suits to work in the early 90s, most of my early suits were DB.
    Today I have 14 jackets (suits and sport coats), all SB. Not because I do not like the look of DB suits, actually, I find that DB suits look great and as I am tall and quite slim with an athletic build, they actually look good on me. But I do not find them practical: I often walk with the jacket unbuttoned (which I know I shouldn't), and it looks so wrong with a DB suit.
    (I know that practicality is not a major argument and that if you take it to the extreme you will end up wearing horrible ergonomic shoes; I am not taking it that far. But when I have to wear a suit the whole day, I know that I will end up with the jacket unbuttoned, and I hate the idea of doing it to a DB suit)
    (Still, every time I talk to my tailor about bespeaking a suit, I think that it would be nice to have at least on DB suit; but then I think about how I will use it, and end up with an SB one.)

    For the last five years or so my suit orders are equally weighted SB & DB.

    Hi

    I am just about to order 2 DB suits (and no SBs) for this winter while currently have only 1 DB while I have 6 SB suits. Led to wonder whether I would be having too many DBs.

    So, what is the ratio of SB suits to DB suits in your wardrobe. Just wondering ...

    Best regards


    if i do this calculation in Excel, it turns up as:

    #N/A

    Take a screen shot and post. I want to see how 6 divided by 3 results in #N/A in Excel
