I know the feeling. This one looks like "happy saint patricks day"

so I had a whole write up on why TTO's outfit (and most of his posts) is so great, the whole "wearing the clothes rather than it wearing you", avoiding "perfect" clothing, dressing to your lifestyle and needs etc but by the second paragraph I got tired so there you have it.

I love my high buttoning points. They are just me. However, I'm interested in open quarters. ermm....what are open quarters?

As a look, it certainly exudes the casual air it's meant to and as such, it works within its own framework, I'm sure. Personally, though. I find the lapels a bit too wide, and I've never been terribly fond of unlined ties in generally, but especially when you can see the folds/stitching in the front of the tie, pressed through from behind. Just looks weird to me. One man's nourishing artisanal touch is another's sartorial poison, I suppose. smile.gif

 

 

 

 

 

Had to give my car in for its MOT (annual roadworthiness check, for the non-British reader) today. No point getting a courtesy car for such a short wait, so loitered around and did some random creative writing instead; it's been ages since I've written purely for my own entertainment but with no major professional writing in the pipeline this year so far, it was nice to just indulge instead. Turns out the car needs some indulgences too: tyres (always bloody tyres!), and suspension work... at nearly 10 years old it's starting to show its age. I worked out that between the two jobs, I'm going to have to spend roughly 10-15% of the (optimistic) residual value of the car just to keep it on the road. You have to laugh. laugh.gif

 

Anyway, that's my lament of the day. Back to clothes...

hey now. saturday is a holy day. you must have meant sunday.

sidebar - i also find myself using any colorful striped shirts much less. almost exclusively in a casual look.

Mostly vintage, the shirt is BB ESF and the pants are Epaulet.
Probably a little too much cuff and the pants look a little wonky, but i think it is just the picture.

Got dressed in a quick hurry to make an appointment, so I just went to some pretty standard gear.
