    A quick preview of something I picked up at the sale at Paul Stuart's. With the boldness of the pattern, I can well understand why this thing ended up on sale, but as a sports jacket, I think that I'll get some fair use out of it. The fit, however, was super - there were only the most minimal alterations done to both jacket and trousers.

    I have a bumper load of fits to share from the last few days, but I'll start with what was quite possibly the best moment of my life at my school leavers prom. Didn't have the balls to ask for it shaken.

    Tis bold, to be sure. I can see how the sport coat adaptation might be a little easier to work with. Not sure the tie is doing you any favors here, either in pattern or color. I'd stay away from stripes, which are competing with the grid pattern of the suit, and maybe stick with a small scale neat, or a solid, with or without texture as you prefer.

    Just not the yellow tie with the new suit, okay?

    I will have to wear it as a suit at least once, if only to watch jaws drop.


    The tie was merely the one I had worn earlier yesterday, and no, that coordination of suit and tie won't happen in real life.


    Thank you. It was one of those garments which I'd never think to try on, but which looked much better on me than on the hanger.


    Calm yourself, Mr. Butch - it won't happen again (see above).

    One can never be too careful when it comes to yellow ties, you know?

    I almost used a gif. But then I remembered I am anti-gif.

    Butchy. That's racist.

    Against yellow ties? I guess you've got me there.

    Why do you wear your watch on your right hand side, are you left handed?
