Ask the MB -- Lapel Pins

Ask the MB -- Lapel Pins
Q: What is the rule for a lapel pin on a blazer (not a flag)? Side? Height? Anything else?
--Aaron


A: Aaron, do you know a single Magnificent Bastard who wears a lapel pin? OK, French President Nicolas Sarkozy on overseas visits qualifies with his Legion of Honor pin. Also, Napoleon rocked them out, but that's about it. So, unless you're a current or former French leader, forget it.
