    NORE, I am glad you survived the boa constrictor attack.

    I don't like this one bit. And the mere glance at the silly wristbands rings the bad taste alarm for me.

    They seem to have a strong preference for Harrison's.

    Too busy for me, Butler. Every pattern is very tight. If you swapped out the tie for something closer to a solid, I think this could be really nice.

    I don't mind the suit fabric although I wouldn't wear it and the tie color is nice but it's another one if these outfits where you try to fit any as many igent affectations as you can (beads, double FIH, peacocky square), you know the back blade is his tie is longer than the front without even looking at it and something tells me there's loafers down below. All that combined with a very businessy suit for me is a strike.

    Butler, I like and appreciate your style. There is a pic in here somewhere of you in an olive green rig which I thought was awesome even if I despise olive suits. You made it work as you do with most of your fits. Bravo.
