    Agreed, but I subjectively think it would look better with shorter sleeves. I respect your choice and won’t bring it up again. :cheers:

    TBH, I’m in the same boat. I don’t have time anymore to get all the tailoring done that I need to get done. I have pants that need tapering, sleeves that need shortening, etc. Like I said, it’s not that big a deal. It’s well with an acceptable margin.

    I've been rediscovering the virtues of charcoal flannels this winter

    Stealing the idea of the pose from @Claghorn but with good reason. I am celebrating my most recent book, just published by MIT Press. A lot of work that paid off handsomely; couldn't be happier.

    I really like the fact you use British high street brands often overlooked.

    Thanks mate.

    I suppose it was implicit in my sartorial upbringing - a mix of high street and higher end stuff. For example, when I was a young suedehead in the late 60s / early 70s, M&S and Wolsey knitwear were de rigueur but worn with bespoke mohair! Of course, today there isn't much of a British high street left...:angry:

    "Ain't that the truth" My mum told me that everyone was always in C&A picking up their new school clothes each term, was it the same for you?
    If you're ever in Brighton or down this way and looking for a new suit, head into Hugo Morris in the south lanes. I used to work there a few years back, nice lads and they are pretty good at the mod look. All MTM, not bespoke though.

    I think my school uniform came from a local Department Store, which is now a Debenhams.

    Actually, I worked there for a short time and witnessed the rot just starting to set in. The old shop was called Bond's and was just coming under Debenhams' influence with a move to central buying. It was a source of great frustration for the longer-standing staff as well as for many customers, such as an old gentleman that I once served who wanted 'a sea island cotton vest long enough to cover m'thing' :-D After taking his measurements I was, on this occasion, able to oblige from some old stock we kept out the back!

    Women would come in and buy white hankies for their husbands - but not until the quality and strength had been fully tested by pulling and tugging at them.

    Those days now seem like ancient history...but certainly helped to cement my growing interest in this hobby / infatuation.
