HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1424

Horrible fit aside (no fault to GuP or Papa GuP and horrible even accounting for Papa GuP's build), both seem to have a decent handle on dressing conservatively.

Remake or refund.

I think @David Reeves made the right choice getting out of the MTM game. I suspect many of the skills acquired as a bespoke tailor/fitter or whatever DR does do not translate perfectly to MTM. I doubt someone like Kent Wang (or whoever does measurements for him) could jump to measuring for bespoke without a pretty hefty learning curve.

I’ve said it before:  that Daniel Craig poseur had better watch his back.

 

You’re looking at the next Bond, gentlemen.

Thank you; that’s kind of you.

 

Unfortunately it’s just an old MTM.  I’ve got a couple others made in very similar patterns.  This one happens to be the darkest, however, so it’s the one I pull out when I have reason to combine gravitas with a bit of flamboyance.   A committee meeting yesterday was such an occasion.

 

Cheers,

Yeah of course. It's distinctively different, but not look-at-me different. Gravitas + a little flamboyance = cool in my book. Nice man… thanks.

LOL I wish I was a £1 behind him!

You got the pants too? Nice.

Nah - the bag isn't sagging enough to be holding a firearm of such weight.

 

Inside Victor's bag is in fact a small lead-lined capsule containing an even smaller pellet of polonium.

Edit: Also, it seems that Eidos makes pretty short jackets. at 6-1 a 29 inch jacket would just look weird on me.


They make long sizes.  I'm 6-3 or 4ish and the 52L works for me.

You can do MTO/MTM also.
