Could just be me, but the Alpha ones look a bit too short.

Op shop week kicks off this weekend, so I went to the op shops. Very good haul, which I’ve posted in the thrift thread. I left two Brioni suits and a vintage Burberry’s overcoat on the racks; I must be getting super-picky. :-)

National Opshop Week
An outfit I won't be wearing this week. So I took it out tonight just to photograph. All opshop sourced. Colours off due to flash photo. Suit is blue /grey.
Suit: Corneliani. Shirt: Borrelli, button cutaway double cuff, Shoes: Churches Ties: Various Italian silk. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Coxsackie has written and posted about altering a suit of his father's to wear.
There is a wonderful book by JJ Lee a Canadian fashion writer, called "The Measure Of a Man. The Story of a Father, a son, and a suit."
It tells in touching detail about Lee's quest to alter a, not very good, suit of his fathers, after his father's death, in order to make it fit him. Mostly he alters the suit himself. The process of altering the suit, and writing the book, serve to explore his relationship with his father and, naturally, himself. Highly recommended. Especially if you are ready, as a man, to think about your relationship with your father.

Agree with fx that is a great book read it last year and there is a podcast of the program on CBC Ideas.

I had a 1950's box cut grey worsted wool suit which belonged to my father I had altered after my father went west. I got quite a few years wear out of it, was in the days when Sydney had a winter. Sadly while it no longer fit moths destroyed it last year.
