I am going to contact Rob to organise a Suit Shop fitting.

What should I get? Don't ask me what the purpose is, etc. just tell me what to get, and I'll do that.

Side note - do you guys know any apps for iPad that 'read to you'?

Essentially, I'm too lazy to read something. And I don't want an audio book, but I want it to read stuff to me. Do they have that?

Navy cloth (whether a lightish flannel or other cloth) with a lighter blue overcheck. Done.

Get the jacket with waist patch pockets so that you can more easily wear it as separates.

Thanks, Ernesto.

Second guy has a healthy beard, I will follow after him.

Good choice. The bow tie would suit you as well.

Fair enough. I've only ever bought from MoL. Although Luxire is all USD isn't? Bugger, forgot about them.

Yeah I found that BB's selection in Regent Street was honestly pretty poor, and I stick to Uniqlo for chinos. 

 

The only thing I can think of is making KW more expensive, which is a shame as he does great accessories. 

 

I donno, I just find that the bulk of my wardrobe comes from UK/EU so the big drop in the USD hasn't translated across to big drops in the EUR or GBP. Not yet, at least!

I thought 'suede' and 'wet weather' was an oxymoron...

Suede is a lot more durable than people tend to think.

Sprayed with some wet weather protector it can withstand the elements pretty well over time.

suede/rubber sole is great for wet weather if cared for properly

I've also seen it said that water-proofing is not required and water spots (from being in non-downpour rain or splashes) will brush out of suede. Is this generally true do people think? Is it only for real soaking that water-proofing makes any difference?
