Super blogger outfit today. Which is ironic, because it’s almost entirely vintage, yet feels very contemporary.
Still not sure how I feel about DB jackets. I know they’re huge right now, but I have yet to see one that made me go “YES!” (or even “SORT OF COOL!”) but I’m a thrifty blogger and I got a chance to test drive. This one is solid, I got it taken in on the sides, but I might go a bit more. The tailor said the vent was starting to pull open, and you’re supposed to trust them… decisions, decisions…
Wore the horsebits because the gold bit clashed with the silver jacket buttons and the black leather clashed with my brown bag. You know how I do.

Trying out some more “casual” suiting options.
I think this is a fairly casual look, the pattern mixing, light color, soft shoulders, and narrow lapels keep this from being too power-suity. It’s double breasted which I’m not necessarily fully in favor of, but hey, people love them DB’s. Bloggerbait son. Just “double” something (monks, breasts, etc…) and get reblogs all day.
I’d write commentary marginally useful, but I’m already running late.
