Vive la liberation! It’s been two decades and enough is enough.

Seriously some of these suits felt conceived by the R&D department of the Spanish Inquisition. Jacket hem lines were lifted to that of airline stewardess’. Pants became so narrow they cut of the blood flow to our mighty nether regions. Trouser cuffs were hemmed so high it looked like we lived in perpetual fear of Old Testament like floods and cloth was pulled so tight as to invoke the surface tension of overcooked sausage skins about to explode.
