    This shall be the last one.

    Tip Top linen, $15 per yard, so it must be crap that no true dandy wanted. Irish linen, 60" goods, probably 11 ounces, but I can't be certain. As ever, SB notch, 3 roll 2, side vents, 3 open patch, swelled edges. Except this time unlined, with smoked MoP buttons.

    Now I am ready for any clime, any milieu, any occasion. Nothing can stop me, save my own indolence and stupidity! Excelsior!

    They always say that, but we all know you'll drag this out to the end with some awful sequel with Mario van Peebles and a TV series starring Adrian Paul.

    What kind of buttons are on the blazer? Mother of pearl? Did you get those in NYC?

    Yes, smoked MoP, the tailor sourced them himself.

    Very nice buttons. I went all over NYC this past weekend looking for buttons like that. Could not find any. Even M&J didnt have any. [​IMG]

    Perhaps a dumb question, but can this concept work with a DB blazer as opposed to SB?

    I think it could.

    In fact, I may have spoken too soon when I said this was the last one. My length of Minnis 0520 may get turned into a DB BlazerSuit.

    RJ was right!!!!! [​IMG]

    Manton, can you please show us how you can detach your buttons to swap them out for something else, when the occasion dictates?

    I've got an appointment in a few weeks to have my own BlazerSuit done in Minnis 0520. I truly appreciate the idea.

    I lacked the imagination to think of such a thing. I just got three of these to cover virtually any weather or formality situation I could conceivably find myself in, at least most of the time.

    might be some image dimension-tingny, but it look very long [​IMG]
    However, the buttons and the pocket are nice.

    Please let it not be a Mystery.
