The Formosa tuxedo at NMWA that I own might end up being what I wear when I get married (though that's a ways off). Might get a shawl collar ivory jacket made in matching fabric by them too to wear with the tuxedo pants as a warm weather black tie as well.
A little more casual: Formosa navy blazer BB blue pinpoint BD AG denim Alden #8 LWB Greenbrier wallpaper in the casino (drinks for me, slots for her)
Check out Boris Custom Tailoring on Bethel Road. The only tailor I trust to work on my clothes. I just picked up two Formosas and dropped off 2 more Formosa suits, a pair of Formosa trousers and a pair of Rota flannels, and six Inglese shirts. They're very good there. Price is a bit high and turn around a bit slow but in this case I believe you get what you pay for
Had a ED54 yesterday that was plugged. Per our earlier discussion, ended up just letting it go about 40-50% in after trying to make it work. Instead went with a L'Atelier black label and followed that up with a Montecarlo. Very very good, the two of them.
I know, I know. This is after an interview and a 5 hour drive and right before I head out to dinner, so it deserves better pics than I can give right now, unfortunately.
Terrible picture, but this is my interview attire (black oxfords no vis): Better pic in the pink bathroom: NMWA pieces (would have worn my Inglese shirt instead of this one but hadn't gotten it back yet from the tailor): Navy Birdseye Formosa Black tubo Farnese belt
See a GN post on r/bestof, and then J. Kenji Lopez-Alt replied in conversation. Worlds colliding.
I think I would very quickly be a single man if I tried to wear it all the time. Even the club we're members of is off limits, according to she who makes the rules. So essentially I'm left with any event that prescribes a dress code that even vaguely hints at black tie
I do need to find some more places or events to wear it. I'm going to push as much as I can to get as many on the calendar as possible
This is how it begins. I started with one Formosa (Prince of Wales flannel), and now I have 10 (between 1 on the preorder, 2 from fabric I have on order or on hand that I need to send out for an MTO, and what I already own), three Inglese shirts with two more on the way, a pair of Rota trousers and another two preordered. Whew.
