Black Lapel will be sending me extra tags. Do you think I should just ask LL to do it, or would he be offended? I could take it to some sewing shop or something.

This is getting old. Let's move on till you start documenting your experience.

Enough with the trolling...

Question for Noodlers.

 

 

Do Burgundy captoes work well with "the uniform"?  I already have dark brown, and dark brown suede to also wear, but would like to add something else.  

 

 

Or should I go for a snuff suede derby (would be a couple shades lighter than the brown suede I have)

What's "the uniform"? confused.gif

Navy SC, Gray trousers (supposed to be brown suede shoes)

 

 

But basically Navy SC, Grey trousers

Did slightly question my sanity when I considered kopping a super drapey RO silk/vicose knit t. Maybe someday.

I've been lurking on the "other side" a lot recently too, and my wallet is now feeling the pain - jumped in on the legit selvedge thing and Epaulet's "ends for friends" deal. Perhaps one day I'll venture out of the, apparently dreaded, MC Casual and over into the SW+D WAYWT  - but for now it's fun watching Caustic's exploits over there.

Is Ninjawear just one of many different styles on SW&D? I see a lot of black.

Speaking of ties (you'll remember when that was the subject of this thread)

 

FYI Shaya (@davesmith) has uploaded the first set of ET Macclesfields

I have several of his grenadines and shantungs (made in Italy) and am very happy with the quality.

I am trying to wear this summer suit as many times as possible before the cold weather hits. WAYWRN pix coming. Very simple and basic combo today.

The Drake's grenadine tie that I have from ET is buttery smooth whereas the Sam Hober grenadine (fina) ties are stiff. I like them both.

Lots of different styles and it's interesting reading the processes for different posters. Some, perhaps many, have quite elaborate visions in mind (to the extent of having a narrative or perception of themselves that guides their dress). Some of those are all black, some enjoy very different silhouettes to these seen in CM, some are very fashion/catwalk inspired.  A real mix. I can appreciate a lot of them, but there is one particular element that I find hard to appreciate - the apparent admiration for incongruously large boots by some posters.

 

Caustic is trying to find his own look and has requested guidance in a thread over there. It's an interesting read.

I think the whole narrative thing is really silly, like in a "my spirit animal is Stephan Schneider knitwear" sort of way.

I don't mind some of the clothing. The personas? Nah. Not for me.
