    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.

    :)

    It actually means "little stitches", but it sounds better than "steken" (for stitches; in stitches would be something else).

    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...

    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.
