I’ve been thinking recently that there are a couple of pieces of clothing I could honestly say I really need and a couple that outside of need, I know I will eventually get and then there are the ones that I may lust over, but I know deep down will probably never grace my wardrobe. For my Need; I have just under 20 suits but not one of them is a plain grey SB suit. I have stripes, I have checks, and I have one DB micro herringbone that is almost solid, but I don’t have a solid grey SB suit. I don’t know why, but it’s obviously a staple and something I need. For my Want; there are two that really spring to mind. One has to be a 4x2 shawl collared smoking jacket. Preferably in bottle green velvet (though I would consider scarlet or navy velvet). I actually think I would get fairly good use out of it (I have a pair of Sutherland tartan trews from Dege, I am dying to wear with a smoking jacket!) and I’ve wanted one for so long, I know I will eventually get one. The other is a 3 piece light-ish grey flannel suit (Smith 2546). 3-roll-2 with a db waistcoat. Something very Bertie Wooster-ish. For the lust I think it would have to be a big thick (4-ply or higher) cashmere shawl collared fisherman’s cardigan. Something impossibly thick and soft to wear around the house in the winter, hopefully navy or a dark charcoal with leather or suede trim. I just don’t think I could ever pull the trigger on something like that regardless of how much I might like to. So what is your Need/Want/Lust list?
