    No big deal really. I tend to wear them with the French Knot so the ends don't dangle through the jacket.

    God, I'd forgotten about that ... had a night out on the town where I was particularly 'inspired' to write that piece!

    I just received a new suit from Rene at Deer Style, and so I thought that I'd post a couple of pictures of it. The pictures are courtesy of the Deer Tumblr blog. Deer also has a Blogspot blog here - with more (albeit older) content.

    I chose a rather casual style for this suit, as I've already got a lot of business wear. So, I decided upon a woollen cloth in a light, quite airy weave in a sand colour. The jacket has three patch pockets and a "three-roll-to-two" lapel. The trousers (not shown in the photos) are plain front, with belt loops.

    The buttons are brown horn, and the lapel buttonhole is hand-stitched.

    I'm very much looking forward to wearing it, perhaps with a sky blue shirt, brown silk print tie, and a pair of brown shoes - maybe even spectators.

    Was just reading the same story and was going to post it!

    There's already an A and F diagonally opposite Ede and Ravenscroft on Burlington Gardens.

    It's great fun going in to E and R, which is like a funeral parlor, and then nicking across the street to A and F, which is like a disco.

    Looks nice mate, I'd hate to be a "suit" in Brisbane in summer, this looks like it's well suited to it, albeit a little late for the season. That's one ofnthe things I love about Canberra, we have a proper winter and can dress accordingly. It was 2 degrees this morning already.

    Very bored... Or trying too hard.

    The lack of one is the main problem...
