RAW denim or WARM Cordovan.. What smells better? 

Today was one of those days that I said FUK THE RULES & chose to wear dungarees!

Dungarees? Grown Man jeans not Dad Jeans or Gen Y/X2.0 “drop crotch”, “skinny leg”, “drop ass” Hipsters - the difference:

  • Premium RAW denim not bagged out stone-washed or some bizarre acid wash
  • Straighter leg
  • Higher rise as Grown Men tuck their shirts in
  • Pin roll cuffs

* these are from ACL x Tellason & IMO great fitting jeans for me. I will do a post about these at a later date.

So this week we have discussed back fit & balance, so why not finish with the same.

This 280gm linen from Ariston is ideal when the season starts to warm up (as it is down here in the Antipodes). For example we are in the last days of winter & the weather is hovering between 19c - 22c at midday with cooler mornings & evenings.

Medium to heavy weight linen offers great drape as well as very mouldable to ones body. Being heavier, the creases are also not as hard.

Do yourself a favour & investigate in a medium to heavier weight linen.

Details | SC - P Johnson in Ariston linen for GW | Shirt - P Johnson in Thomas Mason twill for GW | PS - Drakes for The Armoury | Socks - Pantherella | Moccasins - Carmina for The Armoury | Bag - Ettinger “Wimbledon” for The Armoury

History lesson (from July 2011): I still get messages/emails about the pros/cons with MTO v bespoke.

mostexerent:

Friday Business Casual in Blaze Orange

5th day of rain - EXERENT!

Details | Umbrella - Fox for GW | Pocket Square - Drake’s Irish linen | Jacket (part of suit) - @PJohnson in Loro Piana for GW | Shirt - @AscotChang in Thomas Mason for GW | Tie - Hermes knit tie | DubMunks - Edward Green “Westminster” Mole Suede for @LeatherSoul for GW | Bag - Ettinger for @TheArmoury

* take note of the shape & undisturbed line of the jacket even whilst holding up an umbrella.

There is nothing wrong with MTO if the tailor/fitter knows what he is doing which is unfortunately a rarity today. I have seen more “car wrecks” from E. Zegna “Su Misura” than a roller derby & they average more than 3 times the cost of a P Johnson MTO commission.
