Hello there my faithful followers, and I’m glad to say that your numbers are swelling every day.
*Pinches cheek* Look how big you’re getting!
Enough of that. Today – Suit.
As you can see, when I wear a suit, I don’t half-ass it. This is my graduation suit with the addition of a top hat, tuxedo shirt and bow tie. Now, while yesterday was a nice cheap day, today is not. The suit itself cost 550 euros, but it is a very fine 3 piece Remus Uomo suit. The pocket watch was a graduation gift, and only cost around 40 euros. The top hat cost me 30 pounds on a market stall. The shoes were around 50 euros. I got the tuxedo shirt in a charity shop for around 3 euros. The bow tie, which I tied myself mind you, cost around 8 euros from a local menswear shop.
It’s often difficult to pull off a suit, and in fairness, this is the tenth picture I took in order to get me looking half decent in it.
I think you’ll agree that this is a bitchin’ suit and by paying attention to the details; pocket watch, top hat, self-tie bow tie, you’ll agree that the suit looks much better. I do think I need a bigger top hat though, just to make it look ridiculous(ly good).
Tomorrow a more muted ensemble – my melding of formal and casual.
Just a note, this post is scheduled to appear in a couple of hours, and I’m totally geeking that I can do that. But anyway, I’m having it post later because I’m off house hunting for the day in Letterkenny. Wish me luck minions.
Quite dapper! You do know how to accessorize, David…details, details.
House hunting? You moving?
Nice suit…and yes, the accessories complete an ansamble.
Happy hunting! 🙂
