...yes, but hopefully not the immaturity

I think I will do some research on linen diapers. Save money there.

On a serious note, been told to replace our carpet with wooden floors. That should run about five grand.

Worth it. So worth it. Wooden floors <3

Grew up on floors 80 years old. They had character. Also made it very hard to sneak around at night.

Of course they need strollers. How else would they look decent at semi-formal daytime events?

My parents' huas has wooden floors. I do not recall squeaking but my feet hurt and it was cold. I am going to miss my compfy dirty carpets.

It's going to cost more than that!

I was like that dude in the movie breaking into the bank vault with all the lasers and shit when it comes to the squeaky floors and stairs. I had to figure it out and memorize all the squeaky spots and be able to pull it off in the dark … possibly while somewhat intoxicated. happy.gif

Yes, have all the babies once and get it over with.

Grats on your progeny, may they too prosper and one day wear SF approved clothes.

 

 

 

On another note, any quick ideas on what jackets pair well with a solid wool green tie? Something brown and tweedy probably goes well, but I'm not sure if navy or blue does well. I have this idea that green and blue clash a bit too much. I assume charcoal and gray also not the best match, so it makes me wonder if green solids in wool would not be the most versatile.

Depending on shade, a green wool tie works fine with a blue jacket. Especially Donegal.

Thanks, Iso. I thut those Sam Hobers were gifts for the baby.

I am hoping for the best...to my wife that means the baby looks like her, and only her, and not like me and not have a crazy personality like me.

Does this mean you won't be getting any new suits?

post #34230 of 37395
Working on my first Kent Wang MTM with a blue casual summer suit. What swatches do you guys like out of these? I already have a navy suit and a dark blue odd jacket. I can't decide if I should do something more fun (1293 or 1295) or stick with solids (the first three swatches).

These are all hopsack and I'm planning to wear this as both an odd jacket and a casual suit (Aaron says this fabric will make up very nicely for a suit, so no sanitation worker cracks). I would love a windowpane suit, but I'm worried that it would just look like an orphaned jacket when I break it up with odd trousers.

I work in a very casual environment, most people just wear OCBDs and jeans/chinos, but my tailored wear has been accepted as an eccentricity. Still, I don't think a charcoal suit would ever be appropriate at work.

I'm thinking 3-2 roll, wide notch lapels, half lined, round patch pockets, welt breast pocket, no shoulder padding, no pick sticking. No idea about canvas though, since this will be s/s suit. Maybe split the difference with soft canvassing?



Here's a link if that's not big enough https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9dkpWkjHKC8bXVORVU2eFAyZ1k/view

ALL ADVICE IS VERY APPRECIATED! This is my first MTM suit, so I'm stressing about getting something disastrously wrong. Aaron is very helpful, but I'd feel better about pulling the trigger after hearing the advice of some forum members.

EDIT: It's hard to read the swatch numbers from the embedded version of the photo. Weird. I'm looking at the top three for my solid options, the very last one and the windowpane which is the first pattern from the top down.
