    Looks like we've got a closet workwear maniac speciously operating under the "die workwear" moniker. Book 'em, boys.

    You know, I'm sitting here realizing that I've never flat-out offered candy to cuties. I wonder how that would go over.

    I've always been confused by "die, workwear". Do you mean workwear as in blue collar kind of workwear, or office workwear? Either way it works.

    I don't think the blue collar workwear is even real workwear anymore. Every time I've seen it, it's on weekends at brunch restaurants.

    I always assumed it was German for "The, Workwear."

    I love this color for a cord suit. I think Vox has something similar.

    If this dark brown corduroy suit works out with Steed, I'm going another in this shade, but with unflapped patch pockets.

    Is that actually a suit? Trousers look a couple tinges lighter than the jacket

    Hm, I think you're right. That's really weird.

    Possibly the pants have seen more use?
    It does seem like the pants might have been their own thing (frogmouth pockets) and maybe he was just feeling that matchy-matchy combo that day.

    I'd guess that the pants have been washed more often than the jacket.

    Tragedy of tragedies, I left an umbrella on its side and didn't open it up to let it dry after the rain. One hour later, the tension of the fabric over the canopy is effed up and bubbly and it strains audibly when opening. I didn't think it was possible. Any quick fix?

    That's bizarre. Never heard of that.

    Don't know of a quick fix, but you could just get the canopy replaced.

    Sure. It seems drastic. Maybe I"ll use it again and see if putting it through the rain and allowing it to resettle works some magic, kind of like wearing a pair of pants and letting them hang out...

    Have you ever heard of this problem, dieworkwear?

    Did you try leaving it open for a while?

    Yes, I left it open after I discovered the issue. I guess I'll go check on it now and see if the umbrella elves have worked some magic while I slept.
