You mean your gf?
you haven't seen them before? It's an old beard...
Seems like the first pair of trousers different from 800 previous How do you feel about new leg opening?
No several beards. Everybody at work had a big red beard out of nowhere. Very odd.
lol, he picked them up for me on a shopping expo of his, he only had me pay back his cost.
btw, NOBD, i quite like the dutch version of my UN that you are using.
it seems todays fit was just an all around fail.
was it mine?
It actually means "little stitches", but it sounds better than "steken" (for stitches; in stitches would be something else).
thats ok, what would in stitches be in real dutch, not google translate version?
I think in een deuk would cover the meaning. As in: "Ik lig (helemaal) in een deuk" ("I'm LMAO", but more neutral: without the ass-reference...).
Yesterday I was feeling colourful, today I feel monochrome...
Tie and coat too close in colour, but I can live with that today. And I need to get me some new loafers for next summer...
lolz, got it. i think your initial idea of Steekjes the best. now i just need to wait for a usage i can sig.
Since I actually do have a blog-column (a fact that I've forgotten, much of this year), I will be brief about this afternoon's suit fitting at Graham Browne. Having head tailor Russel back from his break really expedited the process this time and a number of your suggestions were taken on board. They're even accounting for the differing lengths of my actual arms:
The shoulders will be less padded / roped, which should also take care of any pitch issues
The trousers should be more or less what I want by next time - the bootcut remains, but the desired tapering in the thighs and seat - as I mentioned in the original post - is in the offing
The jacket waist will be less pronounced. This should avert the big hipped look, though in traditional English style, there will be a skirted appearance
Finally, I rather undersold the colour previously - it's darker and a touch more coppery / rusty; it also changes a little in different lighting. Disclaiming again that the premises are strongly lit and hostile to Photoshopping, I think that this one is more accurate (this was taken before the pinning began):
I'll do a post or two on my blog-column; perhaps the next time the suit appears here will be an ensemble portrait. Thank you for playing along
For some reason my camera wouldnt focus the self-timer shots, so these odd angles will have to do. Linen, gingham, and GTH for the approaching end of summer.
This is fucking nuts.
