    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Has anyone had a blazer made up in cavalry twill? I seem to wear navy blazers lots so am thinking adding something at a winter weight which has a hard finish but a bit of surface interest.

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    Consignment store karma today. They had a reversible linen-cotton blend RL Polo down jacket, but missed the tags inside the pocket so had it priced generically. It was cool but not for me, so I pointed it out to the guy behind the counter. He said ‘if you like Ralph Lauren are you interested in...

    I once left a SAB brolly in a Wetherspoons. It still amazes me to this day that it was there when I returned some hours later...

    I’m happy wearing loafers with a suit - especially given the wider casual trend in the workplace. But it needs to be done with confidence.

    To my mind there is a disconnect between a pinstripe suit and loafers. The other part is exactly that loafers you have - Bass Weejuns are very different from Cleverley De Rede...

    I don’t know if you are in the US, but Rave Fabricare normally handles more delicate jobs like this.

    Luxire Custom Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread

    The 'apple' colour, because it's a little darker, doesn't seem sheer or see-through; I can't speak for the other colours either in terms of weave or transparency.

    Luxire has a lot of different weights of cotton trousers. The ‘fresco’ cotton is the lightest I have found, very porous.

    Discussions about the fashion industry thread

    They have had some good editorial content, but it’s sat in the midst of a morass of adverts and advertorials and the transition between the two is never handled well. I would honestly rather pay more for content that stood out for authenticity and independence of thought from end to end, than...

    Nice framing of the line on the coat / chair legs. Not seeing much which Doppiaa have not already done though?

    Discussions about the fashion industry thread

    Interesting contrasts in there - particularly between not feeling the need to be part of NYFW yet doing 10 drops a year (seriously, I would be happy not to hear that word for the rest of 2019).

    Both labels are on the same garment, which is all the more amusing.

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    Nah, that’s the noughties ‘budget’ model with Truvativ chainset. Still, a fun ride and (per our previous discussions on bikes) potentially still flippable depending on what you paid and what local demand is like.

    Eidos Napoli

    I am normally a 32; the 31 fit but yes I’d have got the 32 if they had them. No transfer so far but I’ve not had them long / worn them much.

    Eidos Napoli

    I got a pair. They are very open-weave; in fact although they are stated as cotton it almost seems as though there is some linen in there. The fabric is fantastic - double sided, indigo with white flecks woven in on the outer face. They are quite high waisted - which means they may fit better...
