HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2220

A couple looks:



Etro jacket in slubby silk and linen blend.



Belvest for Prada jacket, Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece wool tie.

@Isolation I'd say that's the best fitting jacket you've posted so far, at least that I've seen.

Why wait half a year for your usual tailor? I mediocre at best tailors in my area, but they can be trusted with things like hemming, taking the waist of a jacket in or out, etc.

What town do you live in Tohm?

@Isolation  like Tohm said, best fitting jacket I've seen you wear, from memory!

Currently I'm in Shelbyville, about 30 minutes outside of Louisville. I'm planning on moving to Louisville either at the end of this year or beginning of next year, which will broaden the number of tailors at my immediate disposal.

For the record, I'm not complaining that my local tailor isn't world class, I feel lucky to have a tailor at all in my little shit-hole, semi-rural town. I'm just very aware of his limitations after a few ruined SuSu products.

EDIT: Also, I wish SF would let people change their usernames. I can't stand my username.

Shelbyville is nice. Then again, I like small towns. When you move to Louisville give Harry at Ace Custom Tailors a visit. Not exactly a bespoke sounding business name, but he's actually quite good. He made this for me...

I do love Shelbyville, simply been here too long.

That looks really beautiful, I will definitely check him out!

I find this particularly amusing, give my view on the matter. I've lived/spent almost my entirely life in either Los Angeles proper (not Diamond Bar or some other such part of LA County lol) or Manhattan, and I am, at best, tolerant of each...particularly because of the people.

 

Perhaps I wouldn't prefer a super tiny town, but a smaller city would be the bees knees.

I grew up in San Diego, spent many years in places like Los Angeles, Dubai, and the like. I chose Louisville because it was a smaller city. Couldn't have made a better choice. Unfortunately fate has brought me to Chicago at this point, but that has its merits too. By merits I mean the Lyric Opera, of course.

Gentlemen, have a nice weekend. Was a grey and boring Friday for me, so will start with shot from Opera last Saturday.



And then today...

Iso, I think you're going to have to choose whether you want your pants to fall cleanly when you're standing in knees-locked robopose or standing more naturally. I don't believe addition width will address that issue.

(BTW, in my 50 posts/page view, I am on Satan's page 666 now...)

I moonwalk everywhere I go so that I never have to break robopose.

Considering the complaints you have about no-break trousers showing your socks when you walk, I'd have guessed you walk like this...

Moonwalk is much better if you just want to show the occasional flash of sock.
