    Ah, shoot. Knew it was RL, but forgot those lapels were used in RLPL too. Probably '90s, then?

    I wore this going to the movie theater and out to lunch, in rain. It was pouring, and even still it's raining harder back at my place.

    The vintage Stetson hat, a St. Regis converted to be a fedora, took the rain very well, and is a lot more dry looking in appearance now, aftering having been drenched entirely. It almost flew off my head twice though in the strong gusts of wind.

    I sure do Ms. Tuppence. All it takes is a little determination and some manual dexterity and you can create masterpieces.

    What I'm wearing today:
    White cotton shirt I made from a 50's sport shirt pattern, '51 army fatigue pants.

    Hey djgo,

    You've managed to pair a nice fedora with a leather jacket and NOT look like Indiana Jones. One of the first times I've seen a photo and didn't go there. Nice work and a great look.

    So I didn't actually wear either of these today, but I just acquired these two sports coats from my Grandpa. He said they were from the 70s.

    That first outfit hurt my eyes. Very daring, you carry it off well.

    Went for a tour today of the Dalhousie Arts Centre, a 1967-1971 theater complex designed by Junji Mikawa / Andy Lynch / Fowler Bauld and Mitchell. It's metabolist meets brutalist, with very nice details, like this modernist stairwell in the middle of the atrium.

    Dacks longwings- mine are the older Canadian made ones, they later were made by Church's, to give an idea of quality.
