Looking at getting my wife a stocking filler for xmas in the way of a decent camera strap for her DSLR (Nikon D90). Can you give me any advice? I'd like to get something reliable and, of course, stylish.
Brog is awesome as always.
Love your blog!
You wear windowpane patterns very well, so I thought I'd ask you for advice. I recently got a charcoal flannel suit with a white windowpane chalk stripe pattern. I would normally go no cuffs, but feel the windowpane patter calls for it, even though pants are flat front. Thoughts?
Go with what floats your boat - either way once the decision is made you will forget about these trivial details.
Just enjoy the suit.
FWIW - I prefer cuffs on all my trous as the extra weight adds drape.
Another day, another set of questions! (I hope you don't mind, but I find your personal style exquisite.)
Your shirt buttons, which I'm assuming are mother-of-pearl, are quite thick. Do you happen to know how thick exactly? 5mm?
Also, how do you care for your odd trousers? Do you press them yourself, or simply hang them by the cuffs for a couple of days to get the wrinkles out?
Correct & they vary between 3 - 4mm.
I always hang my trousers by the cuff for 2 days after each wear..
This may sound "dumb", so feel free to ignore as I won't get offended. I'm traveling out of country, and although I've traveled quite a lot, I've never traveled with my current wardrobe. I've never really cared about style and looked like your average American tourist slob. Fortunately, I've changed. The U.S. Department of State highly suggests people not to wear anything that suggests any sort of wealth/luxury. Although my clothes may not be considered "luxury" by any means, I just don't want to be targeted because I choose not to be a slob. Have you ever experienced any sort of personal security issues when abroad?
You Americans are very funny - American tourists are one the most easily recognised along with Japanese tourists..
