Coxackie did a version of that a while back, but the goal was for people to vote no in order to save the $ of the potential purchaser.

Done. Exchanged for a 33.

It kind of died a death, that thread. Although it did work for me a couple of times. I should probably start using it again.

I'd like to put a quick plug in for this, my latest thread:

We are all a bunch of serious menswear tragics here. Let's hear about the crazy stuff you've done in your pursuit of sartorial nirvana. @Claghorn sorting, counting and photographically documenting his ties springs to mind. How about @Gerry Nelson spending half a day putting a mirror shine on his RM Williams boots?

 

C'mon gents, fess up now and give us all some Sunday cheer.

What do you do with that dummy if you're not a tailor? Do you dress it to see how it will look like, and then undress it and dress yourself with those clothes? Seems like an unnecessary step in the process.

I'm not really sure why I bought the dummy. It was quite cheap - A$130 which is about US$100 or £65. I guess I just like the idea of having it in my room with an outfit on it. It could be useful for trying out fit ideas. We'll see I guess.

Ah, as a purely decorative object. I suppose it could look nice as a centrepiece in a big walk-in closet.

I feel like it could be a good place to let your jackets "rest" after wearing them all day.

I'd dress one up and take nice close ups

^^ That's true too.

 

We recently moved in to our freshly-purchased apartment, and for the moment I get the third bedroom all to myself. It's a small room with floor-to-ceiling built-in robes running along one wall, and my father's old free-standing mahogany wardrobe dominating the opposite wall. Essentially it's like a walk-in wardrobe, and Cecil just completes the ambience.

 

Most likely all this will change next year with the (planned) arrival of bubba. We'll probably have to sell that big wardrobe as it's actually surplus to requirements. Who knows where Cecil will go at that point.

Congrats on your new apartment Cox. Are you really going to name your daughter bubba?

Tailor dummy we have at home is a few sizes too small and has boobs.

Quite offensive to call these majestic mannequins "dummies".

Dummies are lower end creations used in crash test cars or in medical environments where they are constantly thumped/pumped.
