    Just dropped off at the tailor an orange l/s linen shirt (RLPL) for sleeve alterations. I've been craving the color orange for the warmer months.

    Just read that organge was Sinatra's favourite colour, although he seems to have reserved it for pocket squares.

    I'm also in the market for a new pair of sunglasses. I have a pair of Robert Marcs that I like but would like something else.

    Summery shoes - all my favorite/nice shoes are boots.
    A pair of decent looking sneakers.
    My first bespoke summer SCs (got my eye on a linen and a light windowpane in a tropical wool).
    Some more linen trousers in better fits.
    Some more cotton trousers in better fits.
    New sunglasses - have no idea what I want but my pre-SF 4 year old Pradas are getting cloying.
    More button-down collar shirts, in linen and cotton.
    A belt or two.
    Tennis clothes.
    Would love a spring casual shirtjacket or something but I think that's not going to happen.

    And losing about 10-15 more lbs.

    I got quite a few summery things last year, so there's not much I want this year. I did order the main new item today though: - Ede & Ravenscroft bespoke 2-button cream linen jacket from a Harrisons book (I think, though didn't really check). About 12oz but a really nice open weave and interesting texture. Matching lining, patch pockets and side vents. This is an item I've wanted for a long time, and made do with various RTW versions over the years. Eventually I decided to just get exactly what I wanted. Hopefully it should work out nicely! I'm also vaguely after some new (prescription) sunglasses but since I'm getting new regular ones soon anyway, I think I'll just get the lenses in my current daily wear frames swapped out for tinted ones. Kind of depends on the price of the new daily pair I get, as to whether I splash out on totally new shades as well! I'm placing a new order of shirts this weekend too, but probably only one of the order will be genuinely summery and the rest will be more year-round sort of purchases. Thank goodness that I don't have to pay for all the above items simultaneously; just as and when all the different orders complete. That should space things out nicely and prevent me feeling too profligate for committing so much money over just a week or two. [​IMG]

    I'm looking for some good suede loafers in mink brown, but can't seem to find them.

    Try Tod's, the current S/S collection.
