The lack of light on this grey, December day does not do the color of the suit justice. The color is brown. The tie is blue.
I had the alterations done in the store (Chicago). Fortunately, it all came out well.
This is the Soho that I ordered. The website picture does not do justice to the color. At first, I had misgivings about the flapless pockets. But, the overall fit was so darn good that found it easy to overlook this. I should receive the suit by the end of the week.
For the past several days, I have been in Chicago and stayed in Lincoln Park--not too far from the Lake. One morning, I ran past Saint Clement's Church. The door was opened, and I went in and "Wow!" A little bit of Byzantium in Chicago. I'm sure God did not mind me being in my running shorts.
