nice! those are blends, right?

what are you thinking for buttons?

i’m leaning smoked mop...
The first cloth is wool and silk while the next two are w-s-l. I would do English matte horn buttons but I plan on sitting on the cloth for a while. Getting married soon and may not be able to make lavish purchases for the foreseeable future so I'll be living through you on this one.

Smoked MOP would be a good choice for the blue....

How many of you went from commissioning DBs to SBs due to the pandemic induced reduction of formality? I used to have DBs in heavy cloth suits and SBs in light cloth suits. Jackets are always SBs.

Actually I ordered my first two DBs during the pandemic. But they're more for fun, really (Tobacco Linen DB suit, and a Navy hopsack DB blazer), so still keeping it casual.

Just finished to watch En cas de malheur (1958) with Jean Gabin. Plot is the following:
Married French lawyer Andre defends succesfully the case of Yvette, who committed a robbery. He falls in love with her, but she isn't true to him.
Not worth watching (except Pépé le moko in 1937, Jean Gabin was not in many good movies before the sixties, european golden age of cinema) but suits are made from Opelka (Paris).

Off the top of my head, Gabin had the lead role in Quai des Brumes and Le Jour se Lève (both Carné) and La Grande Illusion and La Bête Humaine (both Renoir), four films considered to be masterpieces, all before WWII. After the war, he played over and over the same gravel-voiced, tough as nails, old man…not what I would call the “golden age” of French cinema.
