One last hurrah before the heat and the humidity kill me. Yes I know my hair is very silly.
[COLOR=A74345] [/COLOR] Linea cotton suit m.a+ linen knit Carpe Diem horse leather boots A little about the suit. It's a heavy canvas––and I mean heavy canvas. Like, upholstery fabric heavy. On par with some of the heavier horse leathers I've handled in terms of rigidity. The jacket fit perfect, and though the pants fit through the legs the waist was curiously small and the rise very low. I ended up making side gussets to expand the top block, then building a whole new waistband. Totally destroyed any resale value, but I'm happy enough with the result. The only fabric I could find that matched the original's weight and color? Heavy poly canvas for use in sunbrellas. Sunbrella pants.
**** you you should have sold me the suit instead
