It is to be quite hot and humid today, and, as it's Friday, I've dispensed with suits, and am in the most basic of attire - cotton and linen.

Shirt and trews - BB
Shoes - Carmina

My adventure at KnotStandard was most pleasant. The staff is very polite and professional, but with a relaxed vibe, and the staff also seems to be chosen not only for their salesmanship but also for their physical attractiveness as well. The young woman who took my measurements seemed to know what she was doing, and I believe that, in requesting a copy (in plain white, end-on-end fabric) of the eyelet collar shirt that I was wearing yesterday, I presented a few challenges (the young lady took a picture of my collar, and a picture of the pattern of my monogram, which is a diamond-shaped pattern). We shall see how KnotStandard deals with these challenges - first fitting should be in about four weeks or so.

The showroom was serving cocktails and a selection of cheeses and cold meats last evening, a Thursday event for the summer, said one of the principals of the company (a bar seems to be a permanent fixture in the space), and the sales staff seemed geared to engaging potential clients in polite chatter, myself included. (Their capacity for listening to me, a person outside of their general demographic of men 25 to 40 or so, seemed very above and beyond duty - I only hope that I wasn't too much of an old bore.)

It was a pleasant and quite frankly rather seductive atmosphere in which to order custom-made clothing. We shall see if the results match the charm of the salesmanship.

Wear the new shoes in good health, but I'd like to see them worn with lighter socks - a color or tone closer to the color or tone of the trousers or the shoes.

You shouldn't smoke, young man. You'll ruin your good looks.

 

Could someone ID the (German?) user below? I want to ask him a question about his bag but can't find him in my inbox.
