    Hey some extra help on top of the suits (which btw I agree I am only really keen on keeping the 3 button black one):

    What should I do with these trousers? Linen GH RTW. I think I have enough to get them cuffed, and I think I should get it very slightly shortened and also opening tightened? Thoughts?

    Related: Those suede monktons are amazing, got them from pediwear and had them delivered to HK to dodge dat tax. Might just order a new pair of shoes everytime I go to Hong Kong so I have to bring less and get them cheaper + excuse for new shoes.

    This thread has a life of its own. As long as we're done posting pictures of toilets and pipes, I'm good with it.

    I most probably won't have kids for at least another 5 years, but I hope to have a son and pass on my love of clothing. My girlfriend has a nephew who is 2 and I've bought him SF approved children's clothes for his birthday and other random occasions :satisfied: My sister had her daughter 1.5 months ago, making me an uncle for the first time. I went shopping to buy her some clothes and I was so confused on what to buy her.

    Ask Efv if he'll ask his gf for you. She dresses well!

    My wife is a fashion designer and has a pretty strong opinion on how to dress our daughter. Whenever I dare to suggest a piece of clothing, two pairs of eyes are directed at me with a pitying look, saying "you really don't get it, do you?"

    As long as you reciprocate said look if/when you are dressing your son, seems like a fair deal.

    How much you think? An inch? Do you think I should tighten the opening?

    Any of you CM guys dress more SW&D as the seasons change? I want a bunch of SW&D outerwear and I don't know why


    Nvm, yes I do. It's NMWA's and Epaulet's fault.

    I just turned 28 when our little man arrived this march.
    Life & priorities change, but every day is awesome.
    Also @Claghorn, mixed babies are great:

    Yeah, you and me both. I blame the same shops.

    Little man is looking good, Timo.

    I do but I'm pretty basic and cheap when it comes to my SW&D. I have 2 or 3 good pairs of Levis, lots of t-shirts a handful of button downs and a few nicer sweaters and I'm golden.
