HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 1750

Surely this is NSM?

UC always picks the best jacket fabrics. Italianate but not showy.

Rob offloaded it (Ercole) and I made slight adjustments. It really is a great cloth. A faux tweed from John G. Hardy.

That's awesome when someone else's bespoke fits you that well.

Closer for texture! (Click to show)

 

No apologies for quoting this in full. This should be shown to everyone who signs up for SF, taught in schools - that sort of thing...

Yeah, no kidding.  There needs to be a measurement database in this forum thing—I sure could use secondhand like that.

HOLD UP A MINUTE 

 

Went to the manual "database"...

 

@UrbanComposition  and I seem to wear the same size...  

 

@Ercoles , you say?  

 

Hmm...

 

If either of you are selling anything, hit me up 

 

AND BE CAREFUL NOT TO HAVE ANY UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENTS

 

(drives to SF cackling with much evil)

Not to plant ideas in your head, but if you're UC's size, you're also close to, off the top of my head, NYI's size, Claghorn's size, Tweedy's size, and (if a bit taller) Murl's size. 

 

If a spate of SF-related deaths ensue, don't blame me.

The arch-personas on this BBS are so clearly defined that it almost makes the perfect trappings for a fantasy Clue game.

 

Edit: @edmorel, in the Library, with the humbler

What makes the 17 inch better than the 13 inch besides the extra fabric? I just ordered a 13 inch one. I didn't get 17 inch because anything bigger than a 15 inch for me is like stuffing a towel in my pocket. 

 

nothing.  persona preference.  If a 17" is like a towel it's because it's made from silk/cloth that is too heavy for the purpose

I was looking at some of Clags' stuff on eBay, and I think he's a little smaller than I am.  

 

So he's safe for the moment.

 

But thanks for the list of targets fellow-posters

Yes. Plus Noodles had dibs on my wardrobe after he kills me. And while Foxtooth only pretends to be crazy....

Though that SuSu you messaged me a back some months back was a bit small for me.

Really just hope you and Noodles take each other out so I don't have to worry about cleaning out my trous de loup.

Thanks again to everyone who posts pictures of themselves and who likes my pictures.

It is still very hot and humid in Southern California.  Elephants live in places like Thailand that are hot and humid.   Elephants are grey, ivory, and pink, so I thought that I might try being grey, ivory, and pink like an elephant and see if that would help dealing with the weather, since we were going to see an old school friend's husband's art at Bergamot in Santa Monica, where most of the galleries have no air conditioning.

Being grey, ivory, and pink didn't help dealing with the weather. The makers of Bombay Sapphire East Gin were giving away large gin and tonics with black peppercorns in them, so I tried that to stay cool also.

Napps ivory silk jacket, Brooks Brothers pink PPBD shirt and BB#1 repp tie, Squarextraordinare pink pocket square, Banana Republic grey linen glen plaid trousers, Eddie Bauer argyle socks, and Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks......


...and for those who are wondering what my friend's husband's art looked like, it looked like this.  This one is called "Chanel" after the French designer.

Never change @Roycru ....and never leave.  I can't remember ever experiencing humidity like this in Southern CA.....it's terrible.

Wednesday or Thursday. Peculiar lighting. Clearly looking forward to fall (the suit is an oddity, unlined "cool effect" Zegna fabric--which works--in clearly F/W colors)



SFF:
HY
NMWA
Meermin

You should mention that about the Zegna in the UL thread, as there was some question.
