I thought about that, too, but my "size" varies a little through the day. I usually solve this with the side adjusters, though forgot to do it right then. Another way to deal with this problem of mine would be an elastic waistband, track pants style, but errr.. wink.gif

My first MTM suit from a local Tailor, I will update with better photos once I get home but couldnt resist of doing the SF copyrighted bathroom at work photos. I also went for a FIH for the first time due to the fabric of the tie being a little more "firm" (?). I am also wondering as to why the quality of these pictures is so low, it is a 5 MP camera (I know it's a phone camera but still..)

looks pretty good for MTM. not a fan of the very closed quarters and the contrast button hole stitching but that's just a matter of taste.

From some Wiki article, this explains it:

In Denmark, the solstitial celebration is called Sankt Hans aften ("St. John's Eve"). It was an official holiday until 1770, and in accordance with the Danish tradition of celebrating a holiday on the evening before the actual day, it takes place on the evening of 23 June. It is the day where the medieval wise men and women (the doctors of that time) would gather special herbs that they needed for the rest of the year to cure people.

It has been celebrated since the times of the Vikings by visiting healing water wells and making a large bonfire to ward away evil spirits. Today the water well tradition is gone. Bonfires on the beach, speeches, picnics and songs are traditional, although bonfires are built in many other places where beaches may not be close by (i.e. on the shores of lakes and other waterways, parks, etc.) In the 1920s a tradition of putting a witch made of straw and cloth (probably made by the elder women of the family[citation needed]) on the bonfire emerged as a remembrance of the church's witch burnings from 1540 to 1693[citation needed]. This burning sends the "witch" away to Bloksbjerg, the Brocken mountain in the Harz region of Germany where the great witch gathering was thought to be held on this day. Some Danes regard the relatively new symbolic witch burning as inappropriate.[7][8]

In 1885 Holger Drachmann wrote a midsommervise (Midsummer hymn) called "Vi elsker vort land..." ("We Love Our Country") that is sung with a melody composed by P.E. Lange-Müller at every bonfire on this evening.


At the Sankt Hans fest that I attended, the "witch" was dressed like a tart.
We sang the song mentioned in the article.
The country neighborhood meal lasted for hours.

Can I make a small plea to the very small number of people here who still do it to stop using 'gay' etc. as an insult (and ditto the 'no homo' thing). It is really very boring and crass, and makes you sound like high school jocks rather too desperately trying to assert your heterosexuality. Actually most of you have no idea who actually is gay / queer / whatever here, and you really shouldn't be worried about it either. And, BTW, you can't actually tell by the way people dress...

No, just tact and good manners. You know, the other side of style, that isn't about clothes...

Maybe we can't tell who is gay by the way he dresses but we certainly can from a rant like this. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
