    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    I would think that could work for trousers especially given the weight although I haven't seen this bunch in person. Hard to tell if its twill or plain weave or if its woolen or worsted yarn. Twill would be better for trousers but even is its worsted, it would probably wear a lot like a very...

    You're probably right about the grill. I'm sure top of the line stuff gets amazingly hot. Part of it is that I realized how much I also just love fucking with the charcoal.

    In other steak related news, I have been on a high protein diet the last several weeks and have lost 10 lbs. Have been eating nothing huge steaks, pork chops etc every day, along with vegetables, a little fruit and legumes. Steak on grill brethren!

    Stayed at a vacation house last week that had a really nice Webber gas grill which I used several times. After having grilled exclusively over charcoal in a Kamado for the last 6 or 7 years, I would never go back to gas. Doesn't get hot enough or at least doesn't seem to char as well.

    Ongoing Bespoke Projects

    If I were to go for a Polo coat, I would probably just ask my tailor to copy that photo of the Duke of Windsor as much as possible. Hard to get better than that IMO and his is likely in an historical context, the most true to form. Love that long lapel line and the overall slightly...

    Ongoing Bespoke Projects

    I'm quite interested in your answer as well. Although I haven't done that much research into SR tailors, I agree D&S do look very appealing. A very conservative house for sure; in a great way. They don't seem to get a whole lot of attention on SF though. I love those one button jackets with the...

    Sartorial trip to Naples

    Unfortunately I didn't make it in. I would still love to get some gloves from them and would put it near the top of my itinerary whenever I get back to Napoli. Do they do made or order or bespoke? Or can you just pick from what they have in stock.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    How do you deal with this Alan? Do you need to get alterations often due to weight fluctuation from lifting? I’ve been lifting more lately and I’m worried I’ll be growing out of my bespoke jackets.

    Whatever it is, it is awesome.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Do you guys think mock leno is too casual for a DB blazer? Would probably go brown horn buttons and patch pockets. Looking at this one from Finmeresco: If so, what cloth should I do instead? I need a DB since I already have SB for both winter (Fox serge) and summer (Minnis Fresco Blazersuit).

    Wanted to do a true Lexington style whole picnic shoulder on Sunday. Sauce for Lexington style should in theory just be ketchup thinned out with vinegar and possibly some added sugar. I decided to make it a little fancier by scratch making the from a bunch of tomatoes I got from my garden; added...

    Probably want to reverse the order if your looking to add smoke. Most meat (pork for sure idk about chicken) looses its ability to to pickup smoke flavor once it hits a certain temp. Also seems like it would kill your krisp.

    Ongoing Bespoke Projects

    I have been experimenting with pleats since I started my bespoke wardrobe a couple years ago after having exclusively flat front on RTW for years. Although it seems obvious, I don't think you can overstate that the tailor is the biggest factor in making pleats look good while the exact type of...

    Got up to quite a bit this weekend. Skirt steak on Friday and whole Red Snapper Saturday. Not pictured: smoked brisket flat on Sunday.
