    6, I will say the handrolled edges are one of the neatest I have seen so far. Just been made aware of another-entreneur-from-Styleforum brand coming out this year. https://vecchioanseatico.com/en/ Good pricing and selections. Handrolled edges wavy and less tight than Vanda's.

    Thanks for the video! I enjoyed the interview. Jeremy, close down the aperture. The focusing often is on the background rather than the faces.

    Been a while. Nothing much to update. On July 1st, Vanda held a seconds sale. Bunch of ties, pocket squares. Before I arrived at 10 am, there was already a good crowd. The announcement over at Instagram and Styleforum obviously worked. i scouted around and found this. Think it is called Rhubarb Matka on the website. This one I picked up was a custom. Never had a tie of this colour or close to it so with interested piqued, I bought it. Photographs are of my own. Couple of things slightly irked me though. 1/ Gerald told me a price but when I went to pay, a higher price was quoted. I still paid because I wanted it. Thought it would have been nicer on their part just to label the price clearly on each item. Would not have taken that much work and kept a better customer experience. Many customers were unsure of the prices and had to individually inquire or give up since there was a long line of people. 2/ Since it was a slight seconds sale, i was not expecting nice packaging. However I would have thought sewing on their labels would mean Vanda standing behind the product. It is a small effort but it actually completes the product.

    World Championships in Shoe Shining 2018 https://coconuts.co/singapore/news/worlds-best-shoe-shiner-26-year-old-singaporean-man/ John Chung, 26, emerged as top dog in the World Championships in Shoe Shining 2018 last month — an actual annual competition organized by leading authorities on classic men’s shoes at the London Super Trunk Show. The founder of Singapore’s first artisanal shoe shine bar Mason and Smith went head to head with fellow finalists from UK and France, and it was Chung who impressed the judges on color, shine, and finesse.

    Shirts

    The single ply Meander 71 doesn't feel warm. Just a little too translucent and a little too 'shiny' for my liking. Just found out that it is tough to iron out the creases as well. LOL

    I actually love this, but there are a few small things that bug me. 1. The spread of the collar needs to be bigger. For such a coat, it needs to have presence. Right now the collar size makes it look weak. Collar looks misaligned too - but I will give it a pass. 2. Buttons too close to the edge of the fabric. 3. The skirt needs to be robust and flared. 4. Personal taste is to have adjustable cinched waist at the back. 5. Kinda wish that you carry the chevron design from the sleeves to the back and pockets.
