Oh, Clag, if that is a suit, never mind. It doesn't look like it there.

Clag, January 24th I will be at Seoul airport. Bring your tailor. I need a suit made in 1.5 hours before I catch my next flight. K, thx.

You have to pay him in puppies though.

Is that code for handjobs? If so, deal.

No. I mean. I expect a handy for the hook up, naturally. Or half a puppy. Whatever. But the bathrooms in Incheon are fantastic. But he pretty much only accepts puppies as a form of payment. For a One-Hour-Suit, it's 5 purebreds and 2 mutts (or 5.5 purebreds).

Do the divots in the shoulder disappear when you wear it without a sweater? I ask because as I understand the cause of divots (from the tailor's thread), it's putting something too large for the arm hole which causes the distortion and hence divot (I hope that is right). That might help your shoulder fit.

 

So this would be a sort of experiment: what happens when you remove the sweater (of course, you arm/shoulder might still be too big). I find that when I wear v-necks under some of my close fitting blazers, divots appear.

 

Thank you.

 

I will try the jacket with gray flannels and sans sweater. The divots have been a problem from day 1 though.

 

Nothing fixes the shortness of the jacket, alas.

I wish I could stand so relaxed as Claghorn.

Try sticking your hand in your pocket or find something to hold. Lean on something. Look away from the camera. It took me a few months to get it down.

I feel I must comment on this as I normally really like your looks; maybe its the pose that's different... anyway I think the jacket sleeves are too long. Plus the tie knot is too big for the collars you are wearing. I don't really like the tie tbh, I would've chosen a darker colour to go with that shirt (which I do like).

 

Thanks. You can see a faint sliver of shirt sleeve there; that's the most I like to show and it's actually more or less the same on all my jackets. You're right that my more usual poses show more cuff (and I think a reasonable & nice amount of cuff) but if you think about it, in those snaps the arms are somewhat bent (or off-neutral anyway). And as that's where they are while you're moving around during the day, that's what I calibrate the shirt cuff to, rather than the neutral pose above. In fact, part of the reason I generally prefer non-neutral poses for snaps here is that it saves me having to explain the above every time someone comments on it. :)

 

The tie is a moderately hefty cashmere tied with a single four-in-hand; that's about as small as it will go. It would be nicer if it were a smidge smaller, I agree, but it can't be done, and I really like the tie otherwise. You're in good company with disliking lighter ties with darker suits/shirts; most of SF will agree with you. But I happen to like the occasional inversion of the normal practice.

For serious. He gets great results with that tailor.

MBT, budget-Korean edition.

I generally don't post when I recycle fits, but the comment made me chortle. I don't know whether the guy associated all white folks in suits with the British or just white guys in country suits with the British.

My apologies on behalf of the Korean people. I hope they didn't pull on your hair or something else weird.

Oh dear Lord, not all Koreans eat dog, but that was one good dog meat restaurant you took me to Clags. We should go there again next time I am in Korea.

What's the deal with it taking so long and costing so much to get to Asia? It sucks. Just sayin.
