Posts by Mr. Claymore

With the snow falling and a fit battle in progress, I figure it is about time to finally post the pictures I intended to use for the Pitti Challenge. My Blue Challenge look is actually fairly subdued for me. The following look reflects more what I wear on a daily basis and is an outfit I would have worn if I had attended the Pitto Uomo show like originally planned. So without further ado, I'll steal some fabric from Neofinitia and stand in front of a Danish flag (actually...

I prefer the shirt, tie and PS combo of Claymore. Thank you. It is a three button, most of my single breasted suits are; however, the bottom button got ripped off on the edge of a table when I stood up too quickly. So few people notice that I have never bothered to replace...

Oh my! I just got back online. What have I got into? Fit battle with the Pope...Oh dear...
Good, a challenge I don't have to worry about being late to. I do not own a pair of jeans.

I think they have a newer model (Sinclair? Maybe) that has a trimmer lapel. Their classic models though, are just that; classic. None of them are particularly aggressive. What kind of look are you going for? Why are you choosing to go with Southwick?

If that is way you guys are going to be then I am going to post my pictures here too. That is; unless the great Spoo forbids it.
Brooks Brothers purchased Southwick in 2008 and built a new factory. Make- is ...ok. Fit- is the same as ever; sacky/boxy classic American, though they are working on developing some more softly constructed models. Their real strength in MTM is the great flannel and tweed fabrics they have available. Functional button holes: not problem. Why do you want to adjust the lapel width?
As usual, a day late and a picture short for the contest: Hat: Black, Optimo Gloves: Black, Dents Overcoat: Navy, Polo Ralph Lauren Suit: Navy Flannel with Lighter Blue Chalk Stripe, MMTMMND (Mystery Made to Measure Maker Now Defunct) Effervescent Pocket Square: Blue, Bruer Shirt: Blue with White Stripe, Made to Measure Hickey-Freeman Tie: Navy with Blue and White Amoebas, J. Z Richards (Not one of my favorites. I think this is my first time wearing...
