    The Denim (contrast) Thread

    I can understand the need for comfort but looks a little baggy for jeans especially in the crotch and knee/calf area.

    The suiting thread

    I remember reading somewhere Daniel Craig had 2 sets of each suit made in different fits, using slimmer fits for the normal scenes while wearing the more-generously cut ones for action scenes.

    ^I support that. Sounds like an interesting store. May drop by on my next trip back.

    Did you see the cuckoo clocks at Muji? Such old world charm infused with modern design.

    Beware of tourist rip offs. Muji has umbrellas though not sure if they still carry the telescopic model.

    Not bespoke per se, more like aftermarket customization.

    Bamford-ized Rolex sport watches...not everyone's cup of tea. At those prices I could get 2 normal ones.

    The suiting thread

    I agree with what your fitter said. Full canvass with cheap fabric is like fitting an AMG kit on a Proton. I've always sourced my own cloth partially because imported stuff are so damn expensive over here. But not having the chance to touch and feel the cloth in person has its downside. And not every tailor allows customers to bring their own cloth.

    A rekindled love of canvas bags

    So Mr. Porter is on sale, and though this is not a canvas bag but made from nubuck I thought it would be worth posting. Can't justify another bag purchase now I have a Linjer briefcase in addition to my 256. https://www.mrporter.com/en-my/mens/bill_amberg/hunter-nubuck-and-leather-briefcase/524148

    I'm curious what the local tailors are charging for full canvass CMT nowadays. Just had a suit made after a rather long hiatus, D&J my usual tailor now charges 3k RMB which is a 20% hike compared with 2 years ago. Still reasonable I guess.
