An Old Friend, An Old School Suit.


It’s funny, but there is a serious disconnect between what I think I look like in this suit and what I actually look like in this suit. It always made me full taller and trimmer. Probably because of that funky buttoning stance on the 3/2 roll (which, I discovered, is missing the top button). The full cut, regular rise, pleated trouser that tapers just a bit to the full-break at the ankle, the slightly extended, now broken shoulders, it all worked… . I felt heroic in this suit.

Now it has seen its last days. Until I have it recreated in a trimmer model. It’s hard to let go.
