We must have different definitions of what drape is in a coat, because that one has none from what I can see. It needs a bit of work IMO, more room in the chest and waist (no offence to the owner). I think an un-lined coat, unless in very heavy fabric can't really get much, if any drape. It simply isn't heavy enough and that's where the canvass comes in.

Trousers look great however.

To me, that DB is too tight... in much the same fashion as most of the DBs I see on #menswear blogs these days.

Condolences. Time to find a proxy server.

Agreed that the trousers look good, with a nice high rise. Slim, but very nicely fitted.

However, I agree that the jacket is too tight and that it doesn't have "drape". I'm quite a fan of slim-fitting suits (despite my bulk), but I think that the jacket could be cut a bit looser in the chest.

I don't get a great deal better shave off safety razors especially considering the mucking around and safety issues.


For me it was ingrown hairs rather than quality of shave, although I must say after a good shave (take my time rather than running 5 mins late) my skin feels fantastic all day, even if I forget to moisturise etc.

Safety razor is out of the question for me; I'd eventually have a myoclonic jerk and take half my face off. The razor pit helps me keep the cost of Fusion blades down to merely extortionate; I find razors last a few weeks if I use it. I'm glad to see others recommending it, as I was wondering if it was just a placebo effect.

Re the PJ x Orazio suit: pants look great, jacket balance isn't quite what I'd have picked, plus pulling a little around the collar and shoulders.

Re safety razors: try them on the weekend, or better, your annual leave. There will be blood. Don't start by using crap blades like I did (Wilkinson Sword, notorious for inconsistent quality). You will be a master in no time, and shaving will be both quick and easy.

This being said, if you're happy with Mach 3 etc, perhaps you needn't worry. I never was, having sensitive skin, and regret sticking at it so long.

The flip side is, of course, if you have tougher skin, you will take to the safety razor even more easily!

A final point, for those who dislike wasting money. I saw something online called the 'Dollar Shave Club': knock-off Mach 3 blades for a buck. I buy five blades for a dollar via Sam's Shave Shack on the Gold Coast (top bloke). Each lasts a week, give or take, so I am spending about $10 per annum, plus a bit of wastage due to throwing away perfectly good blades while traveling from time to time. That's less than I spent on a single packet of Mach 3 reloads...

wow. good tip on the mach3. you really are a false prophet.

I seemed to be a natural when it came to safety razor shaving; it takes practice for most but first day I tried I got it with ease, with only one minor cut and babays bum skin as the result. Though I think the blades which you use have a lot to do with it as well as first time I tried feather I received quite a bit more cuts than the average. I also have very hardy skin that lets me take 3+passes.
P.S. got my nephew a safety razor kit from mensbiz for his 16th a month or so back! It's great wish I had started shaving when mensbiz was in bizness.
Any aftershave reccomendations? Just ran dry this morning T_T

Each to their own I guess... I think it's an amazing piece and suits his style and personality

Speaking of DB suits, here are a few photos of an RL Purple Label glen plaid DB that I wore last week, along with a Deer Style shirt (made from Acorn cloth), a Marinella tie and Ferragamo Tramezza chocolate brown suede shoes:

The jacket fits horribly. I am sorry but its a prime example of ill fitting jacket.
I have LBM 1911 soft suit in navy flannel . Unlined with hand pick stitching it drapes beautifully.
This is not my picture. But this my suit.

What hasn't been mentioned as yet is that the picture is captioned: "The fit and feel (to me) is incredible" - that's all that matters IMO. The guy who bought it, wears it and likes it.

I'm back from Malaysia and ended up getting a bunch of stuff which I used quite a bit while I was over there: C&J suede loafers from P Lal and from Uniqlo, some linen shirts, a linen sportscoat, selvedge jeans, vintage flat-front chinos and a bunch of socks and t-shirts.

 

I also paid a visit to Vanda Fine Clothing in Singapore, met up with Gerald and Diana, passed on all your regards and ended up having a tie made for me which was freaking awesome!

 

All in all, I met a bunch of great people, ate some fantastic food, brought back a bunch of clothes which I'm looking forward to using and even had a photo of mine appear on the Tumblr radar while I was there! Couldn't really ask for more in a holiday icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Joiji, thanks for the recommendation on the grey cardigan. I ended up getting one from Herringbone just before I left for Malaysia.
