Criminal!



Rep. William Jefferson deserves to be stripped of his office and put in jail for a long, long time. Here he is, PUBLICLY violating one of the cardinal rules by which a man lives his life.



I hope I don't have to explain why this is so wrong, but just in case there are any readers who are unaware of the basics of men's tailoring: A MAN MUST NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUTTON THE BOTTOM BUTTON ON A SUIT JACKET, SPORT COAT, OR BLAZER. (Unless it's a one-button jacket, of course.)

And you can see why! Not only is it JUST PLAIN WRONG, but it causes the jacket to bunch up at the sides, since the jacket was not made to have the bottom button fastened. Two buttons? Button the top one. Three buttons? Button the middle one, top is optional. More than three buttons? Shoot your tailor in the face and then turn the weapon on yourself.



Lock him up and throw away the key. You would NOT see this shit in the Senate, I can guarantee you.

I didn't know who that was, but a quick Googling (plus, well, his name) reveals that he is a Scot, a nationality I associate with strict sartorial rules. Doubly shocking!

And yes, were my convictions weaker, this might nudge me to the other side. I'm sure they have better liquor as well.

Au contraire! (well, except for the liquor part)

I just had to tell a few Scots brethren the correct way to button a suit, just this past fortnight. See, when it's not a kilt they just get all flustered and confused! ;)

(And absolutely yes, I second the motion to begin your subscription to The Chap. Although you very well could even Edit the thing!)
