I happened to watch a few episodes of the early seasons of Frasier a few months ago. They dressed Niles in some very nineteen nineties double-breasted suits.

You know, for a while when I was an adolescent, I wanted to be a psychiatrist who lived in Seattle. That... didn't work out.

On Saturday while I was visiting John Di Pietro, he mentioned that he saw an old episode of The Tonight Show, hosted by Johnny Carson, during which Jerry Lewis appeared in a sport coat with sleeves made to be held closed by cufflinks rather than buttons. He knows that I like to try odd features, especially on my odd jackets, and suggested that I keep it in mind for a future commission.

I'm curious if anybody has ever seen an example of this or has an opinion on the idea. I am curious and the sleeve buttons seem like a place that's 'out of the way' enough to try something strange or even gimmicky.

Further afield and out of place on a forum entitled, "Classic Menswear," is that a colleague of mine has been enjoying having Mr. Di Pietro make a suit for him and mentioned that he is considering treating his wife to a bespoke jacket. She's been pretty enthusiastic about the suit and been hinting at wanting something of her own. I'm sure that Mr. Di Pietro has some ideas, having made women's garments before, including several for his daughter. Nonetheless, this colleague tends to look to more for suggestions and although I can spin almost anything from my imagination, which is actually my job as a grant writer, I'm at something of a loss. He indicated that she'd like something stylish that can go well as various accessories. Women and I have mutually decided to leave one another alone, so I don't have much grounds for recommendations. Absent anything else, I'll probably just watch a few Marlene Dietrich films and see if they inspire anything other than a crush on Marlene Dietrich.

Pfft, as though I need an excuse to watch Witness for the Prosecution again.
Sonya Glyn has had quite a few bespoke suits made for her that your colleague may find interesting:

Good evening, fellow gentlemen. Wanted to let you know I just discovered that there is a (currently) 6-page Frasier thread on this forum. That is all.
This guy, whose contribution to the Frasier thread is one of his only two posts, used this website much better than I have.

The Practice is one of my favorite shows for those early 2000’s Boston professional workwear attire. Bobby Donnell is a great dresser for that time!

I have no idea who these guys are but I like the fabric (also decent price for half canvassed). Almost feel like gambling

Re: Poszetka. Just received a green corduroy safari from them. Very nice. Well done. But have no experience with their tailored clothing.

Often quite a lot of nice stuff but quite short if you're taller.

What a boring bubble you must exist within. Go Purple! ;)

But, Poszetka, please add 3 cm on your general measures! :)
