    Its a 30 year old Scottish Tweed by Scabal...he had it in the back from when it was just his dad's shop.

    Edit*We're going to put buttonholes on the middle of the pockets, and a few other little dings and whistles before its done..

    Wednesday I am picking up a suit and having my first fitting for my overcoat. If I have time I will see if Frank could snap a few photos.

    Probably won't even put on the trou. Have no time during my break. Plus, they were already completely finished on Saturday when I was in Brooklyn.

    I have no idea what color tie I am going to wear with this suit. I have never owned this color before. It's like a royal blue. I guess I am going to have to buy a green tie or something. The fabric was too :inlove: to pass up.

    Yeah, it buttons pretty high like I had asked. After I wear it about 20 times It will probably be a 2.7 roll 2.

    Picked up my latest. Here is a quick throw-on of the jacket at my office. Also had my first overcoat fitting and try on of a first shirt. So far so good. Also, take note of how awesome my hair is. K, thanx.

    :) That's the printer area. But my computer is only slightly older than that one.
