    Watch - Russian 1950's single button chrono - de-dialed, customized


    Interesting idea. Probably not as original as I think, but then I know nothing about watches.

    Well, I think that I've mentioned that I have posted very few evening and weekend photos. So, there is a whole range of informality on one side and formality on the other that hasn't appeared here.

    So, I guess today is a peek into a more warm weather (thus, antipodal) weekend or casual night out look.

    what's "antipodal" mean?

    Well, it's an old word and it's original denotation was, "possessor of many fjords" and "companion of many sheep."

    These days, the colloquial usage often refers to miners from the Outback, particularly the violent ones who drag the faces of others through gravel.

    Sunny and hot today, and attire to match...maybe a little too Miami Vice (the old one)?

    Love that jacket!!!! Miami Vice would have demanded the Polo be a T-Shirt, and the pants linen, preferably white.

    I hate to say it, man, but that Polo kinda screwed this look. Still, love that jacket!

    Thanks Mike...the jacket is seersucker, found it at a Richmond, Va Good Will for a whopping $3.50. Had to have the lapels and pockets slimmed though, was very 70s.

    How were the lapels and pockets slimmed?

    I'd imagine they'd just adjust the size of the poket flaps, correct?

    With slimming the lapels, did the tailor have to take the jacket apart to do this? I would think this would play havoc with the canvassing.

    A unique jacket either way.

    I feel a black shoe counterattack building up...we always preferred black when I was young.

    Black Weejuns. Black Gucci loafers. Black Church's Consuls. And that rara avis, black Topsiders.

    Black boat shoes? I am nearly your age, but I can't remember black Topsiders--ever. Perhaps I wasn't at the right clubs [​IMG] .

    I think that Trini would risk looking like a tool in black captoes with that suit. If anyone could surmount the risk, Trini would be the man.

    Vox -I'm not going to quote it for the 400th time but really like the jacket, shirt and shirt collar on Palm Bitch Wednesday. Maybe just the pic; but the pants....not so much, they do seem wide in the side shot.

    NYR, really like your jacket as well but agree the polo doesn't work. Maybe something with a stronger collar.

    I wish!! Sometimes they fit, sometimes they don't. This one is a decent fit out of the box....I am not going to give Voxy a run for his money, but I am happy with it. I appreciate the props though!

    I guess I am going to have to sack up and bust out the Purple Label with the monster chalk stripes. I have only worn it in public once, and that was to be Gomez Adams to my Ex-wife's Morticia while hauling the kiddies around for Halloween. That outing was made even more appropriate when I discovered the suit had Disney wardrobe bar codes in it...I am not shitting you. [​IMG]

    It does fit really well though, and is bad ass. But it takes testicular fortitude to wear in public.

    Mike



    Aw, go for it! I wonder if it was built for Dick Tracy?

    Not sure really...but was done fairly easily with not much cost (~$25)...the biggest bitch mustr have been restitching the edges...yes I meant the flaps on the pockets.

    Thanks, originally had a RLBL Yellow Gingham set to go with a more structured collar, but with temps near 90 today, and the threat of no a/c at work, I figured I'd better be safe and comfortable. Needless to say when I walked in to work, the a/cs were blaring. So much for a fiscal crisis.[​IMG]
