There's Trad and There's Ivy and Then There's This

I got a perfectly ordinary plain charcoal, darted two-button jacket, pleated trousers Polo suit from a fellow enthusiast and it happens to fit well.

And that's really the main thing, ain't it? A sack suit that hangs on the wearer like a, well, sack is going to look pretty awful, no matter the provenance.

Sometimes I think the clothing forums get so caught up in the details they miss the bigger picture.

Not that this group of photos is all that great. I'm beat, my kitchen is messy, I used my pocket square (a plain cotton hanky) to blow my nose, and Ralphus ran off to join the circus — again.
