As I await my double-breasted Oxxford dj to come back from alterations (next week), I continue to chip away at the various accessories.
This morning I bought this on ebay:
All silk white opera scarf made in England. I don't know how old it is, but according to the seller it was in "long-term storage" and is new old stock. I paid $31 delivered from the UK.
Today I'm picking up this from a local men's shop, a Hanauer faille bowtie
to coordinate with the grosgrain facing on my dinner jacket (a tie-your-own, of course)
I'm expecting this silk pocket square
from Kent Wang:
And posted in the cufflinks thread earlier is this vintage dress set via ebay for $10:
Vintage white braces, thrifted a few weeks ago for about $5. The Fedora Lounge guys tell me they're likely from the '30s:
I have no need for waistcoat or cummerbund and my dj is double breasted, but I will see what silk hose offerings the shop has when I pick up the bowtie today. It all has to come together by Dec. 14.
