From a week or so ago, getting a custom bag made by an artist friend. The front plate is made of titanium.
AE Cliftons in walnut. I have three Cliftons and those are my favorite. They go so well with light gray slacks.
Gracias. Probably a combination of a couple of things. Basically I stopped trying to go casual so quickly. I've always been comfortable with suits (hence a large collection of Hugo Boss and Thomas Pink silk ties that are now all but unused), so I think conservative blazers are an excellent stepping stone to slightly more unusual sports coats (those with patterns). I'd like eventually to be able to wear those well, but lately I've been staying deeper in my comfort zone.
And then of course there are the SF influenced purchases (though actually, with the exception of the ties, all the recent posts were things I've already owned pre SF membership).
Having gotten a tripod I think helps.
I've recently gotten a few jackets back from the tailors and still have another 6 I think there...just getting the sleeves shortened as I had already been tailoring for fit. I have no idea why I didn't like cuffs before...group think has got me and I'm raising my sleeves more than previously. But the tailor is so damnably slow.
Finally, of course, SF has improved my taste. I've been disappointed with the amount of critical feedback I've been getting the last couple of weeks...I have to do something really wrong for someone to give me advice...but learning through osmosis is definitely happening. I think that's the thing I miss the most about thumbs....lots of quick advice in those that really helped me.
I suspect tomorrows fit will be less successful. Trying to figure out what to do with a green wool Rooster knit. The three jackets that it would go with are all at the tailors.
I think what you're seeing is some shoulder twisting, rather than his actual physique. Happens when a rather structured coat doesn't follow your shoulder line perfectly; in fact I think less, or softer padding, might help.
Nice suit! Where are the glasses and the moustache?
