The last time I'll need to wear a full suit for a long, long time.

I personally hope you will wear one soon again because you want to instead of needing or having to nod[1].gif .

In my opinion it looks really good on you.

I feel weird wearing a suit if I don't need to (odd jackets, on the other hand, I've no problem with).

Had it made here. Majority of it machine stitched, but as long as it's well made, hand stitching has never been something which concerned me.

Thanks - it's good to be back here, at the very least (back at work is perhaps another story . . .).

Your small and busy city was a bit damp and cold for late May, but was its usual charming, picturesque self - overall, it was most enjoyable.

The re-do of the Rijksmuseum was done very well - it certainly was not the tired, dark, neglected place that I had seen in 1992. The re-distribution of galleries (allocating the second floor to the 17th century collection, with the other centuries on the floors below) was very wise, at least from a public relations mode (most visitors want to see the paintings from the Golden Age of Dutch painting). The Van Gogh was nicely refreshed as well - the Stedelijk was re-done in exactly the opposite manner as the Rijksmuseum, obscuring all of the 19th century decorative touches in favor of all-white walls for 20th century and contemporary art.

welcome back, crusty. that last pic was phenomenal!

spandexter, +1 to trying out a cuff on that suit.

Crusty: nice to see you back, hope you had a great trip.  Two Friday challenges have missed your input!

 

Derek: most tasteful. (Sounds weird to say...)

 

Clagmeister: a question if I might.  You're not quite in the same kind of sartorial wilderness I am, but are you able to get decent buttons?  Aside from the general standard, my biggest issues with local tailors and haberdashers are the complete absence of things like horn buttons, felt for collars, shirt holders for trousers and other such bits and bobs.  How do you get on?  I can't quite tell from the pic.  Nice whistle, anyway.  Formal but summery - I think a good look for you.

That's surprisingly politic for you tounge.gif. I've had that suit about a year and have been meaning to get the buttons replaced. They are some sort of cheap black horn; currently, they are my biggest qualm with that suit. I went back to that tailor and had a linen jacket made recently...same buttons. They aren't plastic, but they aren't nice.

 

I have no problem finding nicer buttons, though a lot of tailors don't carry them. I generally have to go to a fabric market type place, pick them up, and take them to my alterations tailor.

Oh I do apologise.  I would have been rude but you do usually wear proper trousers and socks (at least after your first and nigh-forgotten forays); you've also ceased rolling up your sleeves "washing up style".  So I have little ammunition left for abusing you. :)

 

Count yourself fortunate - I have to get buttons from another country; for the moment I have a lot of shitty plastic ones.

thanks mimo! no need to fear...ill be back in cargos or plaids soon wink.gif
post #52242 of 78717

Plaids are fine - they either work as an eccentric variation, or at worst are an indignity to you alone.  But cargos insult the WORLD!

Ah, good. Yes, the weather has been disappointing until, hopefully, now.

The all-white walls have been there for a few decades, long before this re-do, with the 'bath tub' : ).

 That's hard to believe. I think all of my teachers wore a suit or at least a sport coat when I was in school. wow.gif

What I wore today: worsted suit, black cap toes. White Linen PS would have been the obvious choice but I went with olive green kimono silk.

 

 

Shirt is pale blue and not cyan as it appears on my monitor.

 

 

And after a 10 hour grind it's time for Game of Thrones and food for body and soul.

 

 

Lahmacun/Dürüm Döner, Ayran and Bruichladdich.

 

Americone Dream it is.
