    10 oz. linen, looks almost like tropical wool in person but feels so good~

    I'm actually not sure what's going on with those, I didn't look closely at it but I'm sure it's going to be filled by the second fitting.

    "Like that"? It's a totally normal cuff. Reasons for cuffing vs hemming roughly: (a) imitate how jeans were worn in the era his jeans are generally repro-ing; (b) get length ideal dependent on where on waist he's wearing them and with which shoes; (c) add a little weight at the hem for a good denim drape; ... (g) show off selvage; ...(q) prevent dye from rubbing off to shoes (that will still happen with cuff).



    Solid as usual.

    wtf at jeans. You look like a painter. Do not like painted gats + heavily distressed and faded denim.

    Yes those are painted GATs.

    Re fuji, I have painted. I wore nothing like that. I have known painters. They wore nothing like that. Weird comment.

    Sounds great.



    It looks like fusing material in the pic. Could be grey canvas, I guess; can't really see it in the pic. Were there little stitches all over those parts?

    Considering that when ToJ sold pants they were pleated, I think it's clear Drew likes pleats.

    I think it looks good. Clean jeans would look stoopid with that sweater.

    Those were stitches and pins in the pants, I got pricked whenever I moved!
    I'm going to have to watch my closet carefully so that this suit does not silently creep out during the night and rape people. Literally, I will have police looking for my suit, I will be forced to testify against it, and it will do hard time.

    Just my opinion, but I think it would look more balanced with either another top layer (sweater/jacket) or a less fitted, somewhat bulkier top. The bow adds some volume at the waist, and the pockets add some volume at the hips/thighs, making that the widest point in the silhouette. Obviously, that's looking at it in terms of a traditional female silhouette, which may not be what you're going for.
