    Driven by one of the most luxuriously engineered quartz movements ever, the Grand Seiko SBGV245 is guaranteed to deviate no more than 10 seconds per year over atomic time. The quartz crystal was grown in-house by Seiko, and aged three months to reach a stable vibration frequency. The circuit of each movement was tuned to the individual quartz crystal within it. The quick set date switches instantaneously at a few minutes past midnight. The facets on the case were polished by hand against a rotating tin plate, giving an unparalleled luster. Both sporty and elegant, and with a 200 meter water resistance, the SBGV245 will accompany you in everything you do.

    So, originally, on my IG post of the bush jacket, I wrote: "Safari jacket in Kurabo selvedge denim" That was it. Now, after an immersion in Rolex copywriting, I edited it to this: "A jacket for the rugged outdoors. The Jeremy Tok Safari Jacket in Kurabo selvedge denim softens with age and takes on an individual character. Featuring an inverted box pleat on each pocket and with the addition of gussets on the lower pockets, the jacket becomes a wearable piece of luggage, securely and accessibly stowing tools and valuables close to you. The epaulettes are detachable - the most deluxe execution of this military feature. At the rear, the jacket features an inverted box pleat and a half belt for unrestricted range-of-motion. It is fitted with genuine horn buttons. "

    I just bought the watch above, the Grand Seiko SBGV245. Hodinkee has an article about it: https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/the-grand-seiko-sport-collection-sbgv245-with-quartz-caliber-9f82 It is one of the very few GS with a screw down crown. I find watches without a screw down crown a bit unconvincing. It looks to me like the GS version of the Patek Aquanaut, with its prominent brushed bezel and sports-oriented styling. It's one of the very few GS with lume, yet gives up nothing in terms of the facetting or finish of the hands and hour markers. The date aperture appears rather large to me, something I really appreciate. I wish it came on a bracelet. It is making its way to me from japan. I wonder what the duty will be like.

    On the decidedly non-bespoke and much more low brow end of the market, I recently picked up a pair of vintage 501s. Love the roomier and straighter fit. The waist was unfortunately a 32, which I had to alter down to a 30, didn’t come out too bad I think Cropped the picture to save you from my bare feet. Just imagine a pair of nice Edward Greens there.

    As you can see, the tailoring association has a diverse ethnic composition, with Chinese tailors and... and.. ahrr..

    I've owned this suit a couple of years, but have never pressed it. Was drenched at least once in the rain. Still didn't press it after it dried. Bigger priorities in life. It looks sort of OK in person, it's just the strong side light that brings out all the surface irregularities. Going to the gala dinner. I was told we won something.

    Sunning myself by the hotel swimming pool. A large portion of the population is Vitamin D deficient due to lack of skin exposure to noon-time sunlight.

    Probably my favourite of the lot stylistically. Construction-wise there are better.

    I told the composer, whose studio is in a separate tower in the same development as JT, that I may be moving into a retail unit in Empire Damansara. He was excited by this. He told me he is thinking of moving his studio to Mont Kiara, in a retail unit. I asked why a studio that composes music would need a retail presence. He said that it is necessary to make a good impression on the customer, in his case, film producers. I said something about how I thought it's all about the music, and that they should listen to it blindfolded the way musicians are auditioned. He had me understand that film producers are extremely human, and being human, are impressionable.

    BTW that's what I tell customers too. I'm just afraid their irons are too hot, singeing the wool. This is irreversible.

    I was in Bangkok during a Liverano trunk show, and I saw that the jackets were so severely pressed that the buttonholes have been pressed completely flat. It was the most overpressed jacket I have seen. I thought then they must have a tailor partner in Bangkok they would ship the garments in advance of a trunk show to, who would then help them re-press the garments into a customer-ready condition. This tailor must be the one doing all that overpressing, I thought. Well now I know it's really the Liverano 8kg iron that was responsible for it. You should know that there is another school of thought regarding final press. Thomas Mahon, when he visited the factory in India that manufactured his MTM range, kept saying to the workers there to err on underpressing. If it was not sewn right in the first place, he said, pressing won't correct it. He stressed that the final press is a pretty light process that doesn't take very long. I have both heavily pressed, and also lightly pressed, jackets. I'm not sure which I prefer. They're different; but both produce a perfectly credible product.

    I'm happy to make pretty much anything if the customer is willing to work with me to develop it. I've done many novel garments, or novel features on garments for customers who asked for them. The problem with this Joel guy is his juvenile attitude. He has an antagonistic attitude towards those he is "hiring". Normally, those he hires are subservient to him, and let him boss them around. I make so much nowadays, I just fire these idiots. JT is here to serve, but JT is subservient to nobody. I also actually make for real bosses. CEOs of public listed companies. I know how a boss is like. Joel Lee is not a boss. He is just an idiot who thinks he is a boss.

    Meyer & Mortimer from 2009, approx. 13 oz., heavily worn and quite shrunken. It might have shrunk due to the sponge and press treatment that M&M offers, or from having been drenched in rain, etc.
