    Yes. IMO. Peak lapels are intended for formal wear. Therefore they are inherently inappropriate for businesswear.

    DB peaks are a much different story, however.

    True, but I think it meets the standard of CBD.

    his style and vibe is spreez in my mind. get a pic of his watch hand. he just oozes it. i dont think he is a poster boy for CBD. for awesome and timeless natural style that cant be argued with? sure! CBD? not imo.

    oh, also, he is wearing a peak lapel SB. :p :foo:

    you are welcome to block me, but i am actually having a serious conversation with you.

    the man is known for his bold stylistic choices is he not? he was a supremely stylish guy, i dont think anyone is arguing that. i am just saying that he is not the person i would use to prove a point about CBD dress. why is that so bothersome that it makes you want to "ignore" me? does it bother you that i dont agree with you? i am not mocking you, i am just stating that i dont agree with your assessment in this particular instance.

    also, you did not get my full quote, i added to it, to clarify my point of view.

    stitch, you have an IQ above 80 I am guessing, if he's quoting your posts, you are obviously not blocked

    oh hai, M. how have you been, have not seen you here in a while. do you approve of today fit i posted?

    lol, yes, that is true. although i have no one on ignore, as i understand it, you can still see that there is a hidden post. ill bet most people who have people on ignore, sneak a peek out of curiosity. that is my guess anyways.

    also, i never have taken an IQ test, so i can neither confirm nor deny your guess. i like to believe im in the 160 range.

    I should have said "going back on the blocked list".

    160? That would be 4 standard deviations from the mean. And quite impressive.
