I have two (formal) belts. One in dark brown alligator, the other in black alligator. If a shoe is anything other than black, I wear the brown belt, if the shoe is black I wear the black belt. If I wear a suit I wear suspenders.
This list is ridiculous. Riding on rims after a flat, leaving the scene of an accident, wearing adult diapers?! They make it seem like you have to be James Bond to survive a trade show. I understand there is a lot of money and (accordingly) a lot of theft, but this list has to have some edge of humor to it.
There's a pretty large fabric store near me that I think I'm going to try at some point. I emailed Lockie but I assume they will be less than excited (or willing) to send me a small amount of material...
This is really cool. It would certainly take some doing, as I'd need to add cashmere patches in all likelihood. I'd also likely need to do charcoal grey to compliment the weave...Any insight on where to find scraps of cashmere (aside from the obvious solution of mauling an existing sweater)?
^Yeah that's my main concern. I have a few spares lying around my closet somewhere for if a blow-out were to happen. But I think they are all on the heavier side.
I assume a re-weaver is the best person to speak with about adding elbow patches to a sweater? A tailor seems like the wrong resource...
Yeah, I was thinking that was my only option. I'm open to giving it a shot (my usual re-weaver is actually quite good), but wanted to know if there were other options. I'll likely be done wearing it for the summer here at the end of the month, so I have time to think it over.
^Thanks for that. I'll reach out to him.
I clicked-through to the suede dye and am not sure which color would be best. In an ideal world I'd like to get them a shade (maybe two) darker, without going crazy. Don't know if that's even possible but perhaps I'll go Light Brown and see what happens.
