King Of The Elite Idiots
I like Alden's aloofness myself, but I'm not that exposed to it. Will is probably the best dressed insurance salesman in the Midwest.
Exactly on Manton. The average man can do better off the peg. The coat seems to accentuate vertical length and be an inch or more longer than it should be. It seems to drop well below the crotch and the body seems oddly loose compared to the sleeves and legs. The straight leg is not his friend either.
Aloofness is actually a positive I think. The thing about Alden is his writing style is very over the top. He thinks he is Honore de Balzac reincarnate. That, and he thinks any cloth must be burlap weight to be worthwhile. Not so bad if chilling on the Continent, but pretty iffy in the US Southeast.
