FWIW, I assume the appearance of Justin's jacket is due to his terrible photo skills smile.gif.


Haha well I guess that proved me oversensitive <shy>  BUT I honestly have to say that I felt true respect for @bry2000 for being able to spot really minor tailoring details - his comment was spot on for my suit ;)

I also wear a salmon shirt, which might be slightly inspired by Boardwalk Empire wink.gif I thought the color would be much more difficult to wear but it seems that when framed by proper color combination, it is not nearly as extravagant as I though it would be. The tie is quite busy but I think that this kind of big patterns and ornaments are coming back and soon we will see more smile.gif Well... at least I bought some more fabrics like that for Miler Menswear. Of course contrasting horn buttons are a must in the summer wink.gif 
























That salmon shirt and that suit go together like Siamese twins. Very nice looking combo!

Contemplating why it's almost impossible to get a decent cup of coffee in Geneva. Personally, I blame George Clooney whose ads for Nescafe have done unspeakable harm.

Self-critique: This tie is internally inconsistent. The black stripe is too formal for a shantung. Maybe it should only be worn with a tan linen suit, which I don't have and don't want to wear. So strong possibility that the tie is too casual for the suit. But I thought the end result looked nice so I went with it.

If black, I think I'd prefer it with a white shirt. It definitely looks navy from what my phone's screen picks up.

I seriously hope they are not selling coffees made for a pod machine!?

Surprisingly many places do in this town. Or use the Nescafé automatic machines. There are a few traditional Italian places that have decent coffee and a few Melbourne-style coffee shops, but generally the coffee is poor in Geneva.

By principle, I'm not sure I could pay for such a coffee. I'm in a sartorial backwater, but at least there are enough hipsters in this city to ensure a good coffee is never more than a stone's throw away. I think if I was forced into a situation of paying for automatic machine coffee, and there was complete lack of a properly-made alternative, I'd have to boycott coffee shops. Although inconvenient, it would be preferable by principle alone to tote a daily Thermos filled with coffee brewed at home. Of course, I'm being slightly ridiculous and bordering on a rant, but IMO, the whole point of paying for a coffee is that paying should get you a coffee that is hand-crafted with some love, not one spat out of an automated machine.

Sleeve got caught up on my watch this time.

 

I agree that the jacket lacks a bit in length, but I don't think it is flagrantly or criminally too short. Two centimeters would do the trick (as proven by two of my most recent jackets). What's interesting it that there is some extra fabric on the inner side and I'm going to see if my tailor can alter this jacket and lengthen it. We'll see how it goes.

I'm not posting photos today, as what I'm wearing is both casual and uninteresting, and I'll be out of town starting tomorrow morning, so no postings from me until Monday.

However, last evening, my husband and I had the privilege and pleasure of being interviewed and photographed by Nathaniel Adams and Rose Callahan, respectively, author and photographer of the book "I Am Dandy". Nathaniel and Rose are planning a second book, which might (the operative word in this sentence is "might") include my husband and myself - we shall see.

I can tell you that the evening was great fun, and it was fascinating to watch Rose at work (with the largest camera lens I've ever had the occasion to have pointed at me) - it made me appreciate being the object of her attention. Nathaniel I've been acquainted with for several months, but he had never met my husband before, and he had the pleasure of getting to know him, and to see the two of us together. Nathaniel is a natural conversationalist, and drew out my somewhat shy husband, making him comfortable to talk. (For myself, once started, one cannot usually shut me up, so no worries there.)

The preparation for the interview was an exercise in selectivity. Nathaniel instructed us to pick out three ensembles in which to be photographed (I actually chose four), and it does test one's judgment to select a small amount of attire to sum up one's own personal style. It was also a challenge for our apartment's air conditioning system (which started to hiccup last Friday - a most inconvenient time to malfunction), since most of the suits my husband and I chose were fall/winter weight. We were able to make it through the evening with a minimum of sweat, happily.

If we make it into the book, we shall have to see if the clothes we chose exemplify our personal styles. If we do not, it was still a most pleasurably memorable evening.

Superb casual fit.  Details on the jacket.  Looks like the sleeves were shortened.

How exciting.  That sounds amazing.  I hope you make it.
