Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 1955

post #29311 of 37396

Love the work being shared on this page! As somebody who's been traveling down the path of science and medicine for a long time, and years ago foolishly put on hold my literary and musical hopes (thinking they'd get me nowhere), I have such great admiration those skilled in any form of art. Took me a while to realize that artistic pursuits don't have to "get me anywhere" to be rewarding and nourishing to the body and mind. I've taken up cooking as my latest expression of creativity (which is practical in that it's also physically nourishing) but I'm hoping to eventually carve out time in my life to explore poetry and narrative medicine. Bill I especially like the first two you shared! I can see many of my mentors who work with our veteran population displaying those paintings in their offices. (And none of this is to discount your wife Claghorn, who also appears very talented!)

Yup, lots of italians do this.

 

Lol, why "Italians?"  Sounds like something you read on the Internet.

This is something most tailors do.

I have the most experience with Italian tailors, and I know that many of those that I have worked with outsource the pants.

I'm not going to write about other tailors I don't have experience with.

Thus, my comment.

Trousermaker. Unless the tailor shop is a vast, vertically-integrated enterprise like A&S (and even then I am confident they must outsource some work) or a one-man operation, it is fairly standard to send those out --- not necessarily to a "shop" as nood describes, but perhaps to be done by a guy at home. Trousers are pretty routine enough that delegating them is natural. I don't believe my tailor makes my pants, someone junior to him does.

 

Anyway, I think we agree.

People over at the Ambrosi thread would take issue with that statement. Then again, they are willing to wait more than a year for trousers that cost more than $1k while being treated to silly lies and verbal abuse, so they must all be masochists.

Ambrosi pants are borderline piratewear at this point with the massive waistbands, twin buttoning point, voluminous pleats, and pegged bottoms.

 

Edit: couture piratewear

You're entirely correct about that!

I think it is an interesting take on the navy pants (crackerjack) uniform. Apparently the 13 buttons from current navy uniform is no longer functional and only decorative.

Alright guys, I need help deciding which pair to keep. I rarely wear black dress shoes so having 2 pairs that are so similar doesn't make sense.





I have no real preference over either of them, and like certain things about each shoe. I'll leave brand names out for now to keep bias out as much as possible.

Well, that's one way to keep pocket flare to a minimum.

The rounded toes look like they fit better (no creasing on the cap) and have less broguing, so therefore are more versatile.

I get the leaving brands out, but since with shoes brand is a pretty good quality indicator maybe you could say what each of these is?
