Drakes wool/silk PS
ok, is not a db, but you have to agree they look incredibly alike even in the face I mean he could be his grandson
How could I miss this! Looking great, congratulations
^ THAT is just effin' awesome.
I'll add to the congratulations to both SVB & Citan; nice work guys. Also, congratulations to Tibor for being able to wear that silk DB with such flair. I believe it's the Spano I used to own, and he wears it so much better than I ever could muster. It's so perfect for his style.
Another freezing cold day. Once every couple of years, I try wearing a button done collar with a tie. It always looks/feels so seriously weird to me. But it's fun to play around with it once in a blue moon.
Synchronicity is always fun. Some of the stuff I am wearing is actually authentic - the frock coat, for example. The waistcoat was made by my wife to a C19th pattern, as was the cravat. The shirt and the hat are mid-C19th reproductions from Darcy Clothing. The cane and moustache wax are from a slightly eccentric neighbour (he's a drill sergeant in the Canadian forces with a fearsome waxed moustache!). What I really want are some proper side-buttoned C19th style boots. There are a couple of Parisian makers who still do them, but at a ridiculous price, and vintage men's boots of this kind are hard to come by... anyway, next week I will be doing New York in the 1920s / 30s, so it will be full heavy 3-piece and fedora time. I won't be able to do this as well as Tibor, who has got this down...
