    The suiting thread

    ^ Although no knock on audiophiles. Like many enthusiast pursuits, its driven by passion and emotion. They love the hobby so they go deep. Why lust over a Lange when your phone can tell the time? Many sane people may ask.

    The suiting thread

    I have a five piece wireless setup from Sonos - so fair to say its pretty far removed from what an audiophile would even consider a real hifi system. Compared to the single bluetooth speaker I typically use (or just direct from TV/ laptop), it is probably a 100x improvement, mostly in how much enjoyment I get personally. If I think use case; I rent an apartment with an open space plan - wires are my enemy. I have little interest in investing hours to find the right kit - the current system is self contained; no need for amps, no worries about matching/compatible components. This system also allows me to pack up my five piece system easily and quickly when I move apartments.

    60th percentile in relation to the population. And what about in relation to the pool of applicants 😛

    Older tailoring

    Post up your older classic tailoring garments. Show us archaic details, and long lost craftsmanship. ——— Found an old Spark Manshop DB Navy Blazer my father had made in the early 90s. Its fully canvased and some nice hand detailing. The cut is ordinary, no real waist suppression, but clean enough. Lots of shoulder padding. Cloth is a plain weave by Italian mill Guabello in Biella, the brand name is still around. Sleeves need lengthening slightly.

    He is also a fan of the classic oyster case. Looks like an Oyster Perpetual.

    Sexy. I looked up the cloth - 355g / 12 oz. This was what passed for 'summer' fabric in days past, designed specifically for the tropical parts of the Empire. I reckon it would be like walking around in a sauna if worn here. I saw a full solaro suit worn by an older gentleman during peak summer in Rome, it's glory was forever seared into my brain.

    Forum matters

    For some reason (and it could be just me), the functionality of the forum on my iphone's safari browser has been pretty terrible. E.g. none of the photos posted by kotmj are visible (but they are on my laptop), and I can't even reply/make new posts on my phone.

    Scrolling through their instagram turns up alot of very garish stuff. Reminds me of Kevin Seah. There are a few examples of more subdued commissions, often ruined by horrendous pick stitching on the lapels which is a shame as it really cheapens the look.

    Wow I am impressed with the industry of Bespooked. They have a large stable of celebrities / domestic and foreign dignitaries wearing their garments featured on their website and social media. This includes English/Malaysian leading “it” man Henry Goulding and beloved sportsman Lee Chong Wei. Even Khairy is a supporter. They have 4 global locations in HKG, MY, Papua NG, and AUS. Guessing their prices must be approaching (if not exceeding) WW Chan! To think their global flagship in 1U is 10 mins from my home.

    The Denim (contrast) Thread

    Thats the quickest way to sick fades! But I always succumb to temptation to acquire. I think I have about 4 pairs of raw dark denim in varying stages of wear. Oldest one in rotation is from 2014/15. It’s also the great Simon Compton’s recommendation to just have 1 pair of jeans. Jajaja https://www.permanentstyle.com/2019/12/how-id-shop-on-a-budget.html
