Lol. I am fortunate to have a very kind wife and she is unfortunate to be stuck with an asshole for a husband. That's how that works out.

As you noted, I do not think anyone needs a justification for whether not they bye RTW or custom.

That being said, no I do not think I have any issues extrapolating what a full garment would look like based on the swatch. I have been very pleased with the items that I had made up based off of swatches.

However, there were times where the fabrics that I found RTW were more what I was looking for the comparable swatch samples. Therefore, for those items I chose to go RTW. Whereas for things that I was looking for that I could not find RTW I found the custom was the better option.

For me it's just about finding the optimal item at the right place.

Was my typical tuesday outfit, usually an OCBD. This time it was Gitman OCBD, Lacoste Wool Sweater, Wool Scarf, Some Korean Vest

Had some free time after working the studio and had an order of pocket squares to make.

I was also told by a few people recently that my usage of the term "third world country" was offensive, but that is another topic.

I believe the correct term is "developing economies"

SB - looks great. Love the combo of that tie with that jacket.

Thanks! It is a Barba Napoli shirt which I thrifted a year or so back.

The provenance explains it all. Ah, successful thrifting...

New (to me) cords courtesy fellow SF'er

Thoughts (Click to show)
I started with the cords. They are new and I was eager to try and incorporate them. I knew right away that I wanted a lighter tweed jacket and this is one of my newer acquisitions. I really like the fabric and details on it (unfortunately after looking at the pics I think it is both slightly too small and too long for me. Shame, really). I selected the shirt next. This shirt is sort of a more washed out gray/light blue and felt like that would work nicely with the pants/jacket. The tie seemed like an easy choice for dark brown knit, as well as the shoes. The square felt like a slam dunk given the colors and the small pattern. I wore these socks, because I don't have any dark green ones and I felt that the lighter color tied well to the jacket.

Again, I am very sad that this jacket does not fit me. I think the fit issues are minor, however and I will probably continue to wear it while I look for a replacement. In addition, if people don't think that the tightness is too much of an issue I may see if my tailor can shorten it a bit. I already had her let out everything she could in the side seams.

Comments and criticism always welcome.

Angling needs work too. You might want to hold up your camera at a much higher angle.

I think it looks more exaggerated because of the photo but yes it's a high armhole. I think we are actually wearing the same tie.

Ha, thanks. The ones I have like that capture too much light, so they wash out even worse. Try, try again...

There was a kerfuffle? Were there also shenanigans?

There was certainly a brouhaha, and highjinks and tomfoolery were rampant.

Hoping that by now, Stitchy is home, soothed, replete with milk and cookies and sleeping well

 

In the mean time, I'm wearing a bow tie.  To work.  Just because.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almost forgot: thanks, Andrew Lock, for the freebie novelty cufflinks.
