@spoopoker and other scavengers.

Here's a shitty pic of the ad: the tie is on the upper left corner.

Picked up two Panama hats on special yesterday. One is white with a dark grey satin band - an item which has been on my to-acquire list for some months.

 

The other is identical in shape but an unusual light brown colour. It also has a tighter weave and seems to have a slightly firmer structure.

 

 

Obviously it doesn't match what I was wearing, but I really like this colour and look forward to incorporating it into future fits. Any ideas as to how I might go about doing that?

I, for one, am glad of the summer slowdown as I have scarce time to keep abreast of the happenings as they are while on vacation...2 young kids means no time for browing except like this...


As for the quality improvements, I havent been posting and it wouldnt be the first time I've been told I light up a room merely by leaving it!

Eagerly awaiting the formosa fit though, Noodles. Chop, chop.

my 2 cents.

Here it is. What you all think? Minor alteration will be done.
post #8662 of 37497
Looks very good. Sleeves look to be the only obvious alteration needed. Very clean shoulders and chest and great shape though the waist.
post #8663 of 37497
Really like that, noodles. Sleeves as you know, but the shoulders+quarters are doing wonders for you IMO.

Very smick, young man, very smick.

post #8665 of 37497
That looks great. The pear shaped issues that have sparked so much discussion here are gone. Sleeves, obviously, but that's no big deal.
post #8666 of 37497

Now you just need some wide ties to go with those excellent lapels.

 

No, I'm not giving that Cappelli back...

Gentlemen,
Thank you for the positive reviews. I am very relieved that the Formosa suit worked out. I will buy a couple more but glad this is a solid start. I guess I may consider the SS La Spalla at some point too.

@Cox - keep that tie! It looks better on you. HAha

@mursquirl
Thanks for making this happen. You the man. Now send me that grey Formosa. Hehehe
