That's great, Mike. :eusa_clap
Hello, friends. You've been on my mind lo these past weeks and months, and I hope you'll forgive my absence. I have been moving into a new domicile, and even before that the stress of my previous circumstances weighed heavily enough that pictures of my daily attire fell low on my list of priorities.
And now I am in my new digs, only to discover that my digital camera did not survive the transition. Moving was such a strain on my resources that the purchase of a new camera will have to wait at least another month or two. And, of course, I have also not been able to purchase any new suits of clothes or hats. A sad man am I. I do have a brown pinstripe three-piece suit and a blue vintage fedora that I came into possesion of, each awaiting a fat paycheck to tailor and fix up so that I may wear and share them.
Until such time as I am able to do otherwise I will endeavor to contribute more actively to the forum, even if only by way of trite comments and banal emoticons.
(Bartenders: please forgive the bloggy nature of this post!)
Good to hear from you Sir, you've been missed.
I second Chanteue's sentiments. I hope your life is on the upswing now.
Be well, better days are coming.
Indeed! Glad to hear from you, Slim.
I look much more serious than I am.
I think he just knows what proper tailoring is, how to coordinate, and staying away from items that simply wouldnt look right, no matter how vintage or unique.
Dessed like this today
Will dress like this tomorrow, just changing my tie for a red one.
Slim - I fourth the comments above mine directed at you (if that makes any sort of grammatical sense!)
Mike - I really like that suit, and you look grand.
ThesFlishThngs- cute shoes (and I like the furniture as well)!
Dinerman - as always, :eusa_clap .
Oooh you guys are too kind! I'm still learning, actually I changed the pocket square to a brown/red combo instead of the one pictured (a 1933 Chicago World's Fair pocket square!) I thought the colors might clash with the bowtie. I dunno, better safe than thinking about it all night, right? :eusa_doh: Anyway, that was me on my way to my 1930's barrelhouse blues night.
this morning before heading out the door... melbourne-made 40's styled wool suit from the shop where i work p/t, vintage 30's blouse & 40's accessories
"A perfect Spring ensemble for for the "Paris" end of Colin Street"
I really like this a lot too!
More of a test fitting than an actual worn-out-and-about outfit, but I was trying something out yesterday and would up with a couple of pics that just cry out to be shared.
You can't see it, but there's a basket on the floor, just to my right. I apparently couldn't see it either as I was backing away from my camera and tripped over it. Didn't fall, but I wound up leaning on my closet door for support. Love the deer-in-headlights look I'm giving the camera, even if it is out of focus:
Somewhat more composed:
Suit's off to the tailor today to have an inch or so added to the jacket.
I'm pretending it's 1957.
Here's a not-great photo of what I'm wearing today. I'm in one of my favorite suits, and it's my first time to wear this particular bow tie.

That's not sad. It's contemplative. It's a great picture.
