    This talk of lapels brings something up I detest - a strict adherence to "classic" proportions of clothing. This is so common with lapel size, people insist that a 3.5 is the only acceptable size. That's silly. A 3.5in lapel will be too wide on a really slim guy, and will be tiny on someone like Shaq. How about looking at proportion on the actual wearer instead of strict adherence to what the standard suit looked like in 1961?

The whole look is. I just can't stand 'em. I believe the term that usually pops into my head translates roughly to "shower cap" from french.

    But we all have our own tastes and such.

    Funny to me how we used to laugh at guys with pants too short and now it's the super chic thing to do.
    I get that you're really proud of your sock collection but can't it be a special moment, instead of on full display at all times?

    I still wonder why guys are wearing what I used to call "floods" whenever I see short pants...

    That's been going on for almost 10 years now and I still think it looks dumb as hell.
