    Gloriously off-topic

    Last night, a loud, soulful howl from right outside the house. Like a wolf's. It was her.

    I think they have the same caliber.

    Me wearing "6"'s Sea Dweller. Two Rolexes. One dressy sport, the other sporty dress.

    She's still tweaking the logo. In the meantime, I paired it with some unorthodox typography. Fresher than using gravestone fonts.

    Shirts

    While watching Netflix and eating dinner, the best idea of 2019 (so far) came to me. Customers were consistently telling me that their workplaces have become extremely dress casual. People are literally going to work in T-shirt and jeans. The thought came to me I should shoot a model wearing T-shirt and jeans, but with a great jacket as well. The message I hope to get across is, sure, go ahead with T-shirt and jeans, but when the situation warrants it, put on an incredible jacket and demolish the others. I know just the T-shirt supplier to use: Buttonwell. It might be a joint marketing campaign!

    The watch appreciation thread

    The problem with the Hublot Classic Fusion, it occurred to me, is that it tries hard to be different from other watches. It tries to stand out by being different. The Datejust tries only to be a very good daily wearer. It tries to be a very good watch, not a distinctive watch.

    The watch appreciation thread

    I sold my Ball Engineer II today. Ever since getting the Datejust, I simply lost interest in wearing my other watches. It's the Datejust everyday. The buyer is a watch dealer who was wearing a Hublot Classic Fusion. I asked to see it. It has a complex case design. Though a very expensive watch, I failed to be impressed. It has a cheapish look to the dial. The watch is large, but the movement is tiny. The case is the best part about it. Ultimately, if asked to chose between them, I still prefer my Datejust.

    I think it's called "duckshit green". Congrats on the great jacket.

    Latest hauls

    In an effort to promote a return to sharing our shameless consumption and consumerism on the forum; this was a recent pickup of mine during the post-Christmas sales. Sidenote: What would you say the colour of the jacket is? ——————— > Subtle spalla camicia > the leftover stitching to promote the notion that this jacket has some hand finishing. > Japanese English copy

    Just saw the latest iteration of the logo design. It's very good.

    The suiting thread

    Today, I accepted the first-ever order for a fully canvassed jacket for a woman. A DB, no less. I normally categorically refuse to make for women, unless it's for undemanding suits like corporate uniforms. It's partly my lack of familiarity with this genre of tailoring, and partly how there is so much unexplored territory in menswear that I don't feel the need to go into womenswear. I never really had to reject that many requests though. Women tend to buy their simple, inexpensive suits off-the-rack. This female customer today is the wife of an existing customer. I made her husband his wedding jacket four years ago. Here's what he wrote to me to secure an appointment. Hi Jeremy, Happy new year! Hope this e-mail finds you well. It has been a while--you made me a double-breasted linen jacket that I used at my wedding about 4 years ago. You'll be happy to hear that it's still going strong (as is the marriage thankfully). I'd like to commission a fully-canvassed suit from you please. ...... It turns out the wife took a strong liking to her husband's DB, but her husband wouldn't allow her to wear it. Both husband and wife ordered clothes today: a suit for the husband and a jacket for the wife. While I may not have seen him in four years, he has sent at least one of his colleagues my way---a partner from the SG office of BCG who ordered two suits.
