Thanks! The glasses are ancient Alain Mikli, my backup pair. I scratched the lens on my main pair a couple of weeks ago.

Picked up a cream linen coat ystd, and here it is, worn.

I think I understand why so many people prefer a soft shoulder. It definitely has its charms, and looks less, for want of a better word 'artificial'.

The weather persists in being hot, and Cinderella, having come home from yesterday's ball at the Frick with both slippers, but damp from sweat, as opted for a more casual look today.

Shirt, trousers, shoes - all BB

One of the merry band of posters here criticized me for wearing my hat with the brim down all the way around - Quentin Crisp was invoked in comparison. In addition having far greater personal hygiene than Quentin (I met the man once, many years ago), I don't really see the equivalence. As an experiment, I snapped the back of the brim up, and took a photo - one can compare it with the candids taken last night at the museum. There's virtually no difference to my eye, but others may differ on this.

A couple of photos from last night's event - forgive the cell phone quality. The event had at least four professional photographers at it - the woman in the background in the outdoor picture (the sliver of an arm cradling a large camera) has been at this event the last four years, and seems to be the official photographer for the museum. She took a few photos of my partner and myself, outside - we'll see if they end up ever being published.

Brooks Brothers - I got mine at One Liberty Plaza, but I am sure that Regent St. has them as well.

bboys - new suit looks great, especially love the purple lining.

Pingson - great fit.

Crusty, hat looks great both ways - kinda makes me want to get something with a wider brim next time I buy a Panama smile.gif

 

And bboysdontcryy, that jacket looks very nice. To me, one of the biggest advantages of soft shoulders, specially if they come with higher armholes, is that you can move your arms and sit without the whole jacket riding up.

i love soft shoulders and higher armholes, just suck when the armhole is so high it digs into your armpits. : (

With a softly padded/unpadded jacket? That would strike me as odd for RTW, it would mean a very tiny armhole, almost Anderson and Sheppard size wow.gif

Herringbone from Herringbone...nice

Thanks guys.

I've had a couple coats where I faced the problem of the armholes cutting into my armpits. IMHO, I think there might be two possible reasons: 1) Armhole is too high and 2) the armhole wasn't cut to account for the way one's arms hang forward. This was the problem I faced, armhole was poorly shaped (plus high), and thus the armhole was cutting into my armpits. I had the tailor recut the armholes outward (that is, towards the front) and I had a better range of motion.

Think the higher the armhole, the less latitude for imprecision.

Very hard to find RTW coats with high armholes I think, since they probably need to make garments that will fit multiple body types.
