That rise looks like 4 inches too long...

i mean taper them in the inside of the thigh near the crotch to lessen the rise. taper was probably the wrong word.

Are Boglioli suits canvased or fused?  Are they good quality?  Or is there a range in the quality?

Leaving the fit issues aside (and I agree that the drop-crotch look is best avoided!), I strongly recommend that at some point soon, you deliberately wear your very nicest stuff in bad weather. I'm not even kidding. This mindset of avoiding wearing nice things in wet weather is really toxic to developing a personal style. Enjoy your stuff; screw the weather!

 

I'm not saying wear weather-inappropriate items like a cream linen jacket in the snow or a suede jacket in a torrential downpour. Nor am I suggesting not carrying a brolly, wearing a trenchcoat, or whatever sensible protection you'd normally use in heavy rain. But please, don't let bad weather be a reason to avoid wearing something nice if in all other respects, it would be an item you'd happily wear that day.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

(PS. I agree with Moo; jacket looks very nice.)

good advice...i remember reading somewhere that someone said they always would recommend sleeping in their new suit for a night. They said it would make it easier to wear and youd FEEL more comfortable in it.

Admittedly, our rain here is frequently more of the intermittent moderate drizzle variety rather than heavy torrential downpour kind but I don't think you'll need to get them re-pressed/cleaned as often as you think, regardIess of the weather you wear them in. I never bother getting my stuff pressed between when it actually needs dry cleaning (generally about once a year or two, depending on precise frequency of wear; more for light-coloured summery stuff of course). As long as you give them a quick light brush after wear, hang them up and give them a few days or so between wears, any effect of bad weather on creases tends to reverse itself naturally. YMMV, of course; simply some food for thought! :)

Wise words, Dr H.  I find it especially amusing how people baby their shoes, while in the same breath going on about the norwegian welt or impermeable shell cordovan...

 

Stitchy, you need to ask for a trouser press for your birthday.  You still pay for the electricity, but you could hook your little girl's bicycle up to a dynamo or something? :)

well, like you said i try and dry clean only as absolutely necessary to lengthen the life of the garment. and my OCD nature gets very flustered when the pants by the hem loses its crease and looks like an unkempt puddle. and even in a long rain coat i find that that is the part of the pants that gets hit worst in the rain. even just walking to my car and back 4 times will do the requisite damage.

in essence though you are right, and if i wasnt so mentally damaged this would be less of an issue.

basically, if it rains, expect me to dress like crap. frown.gif

maybe one day i will see the light.

i think it looks great as is. sometimes we over criticize on WAYWRN. Not a personal attack JA ... i think sometimes the nitpicking gets TOO next level. This is a REALLY well put together outfit.

As generous as I am with color and pattern, thats even a little too much purple for me. I have a lot of different ways I plan on wearing this suit though.

Thanks for the kind words
