    Yeah like NoName said, 2 stories would work fine. Story 1 & 2 or 1 & 3. Either way please include playing with snake around neck. I like that part.

    Purple suits or in this case, a tailcoat, can look quite elegant:

    I can pretty much choose any colour I like as it won't make a difference to the people around me. It's still going to be a shocker because they don't wear suits at all. Not even the top boss. Maybe go for tan or dark green as your next suit colour if you want to get a little adventurous.

    Lookup the minister of Google for his list of accomplishments. Compliment him and congratulate him. Then get him to record a video of himself congratulating you on your business.

    I do like Arko shaving soaps. They last a long while and have a pleasant scent. Arko also does aftershave creams but I haven't tried them yet since I've been keeping the beard.

    Speakeasy bar style. I once went to a speakeasy bar in Damansara Utama Uptown. Would have quite a bit of trouble finding the place if I wasn't told beforehand that it was located above The Good Batch restaurant. The stairs were dark and dodgy. One floor up was a foreboding metal door which creaked open as I drew nearer. I was greeted by a well-dressed bouncer slightly nodding at me and gesturing for me to partake in the frivolities inside. Turned out to be a decent bar with good drinks and posh sofas and interiors. Unfortunately my friend couldn't get in because he was wearing flip flops. They have since changed that policy because I saw flip flops the next time I was there.

    Very novel! I have no experience to know how much effort a store of this design would take; I can only imagine quite a bit of work to set up something like this. But if it did work it will be something special that could be a nice attraction in a magazine/online article.

  11. From the article, Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah. Didn't recognize him without all his golden garb that was don in all the photos you see in Pejabat POS and the like.

    Dress shoes

    I usually leave my shoe laces untied before slipping them on. I wouldn't know if getting G&G or EG from their factory would be cheaper. I don't even know if they sell them right out of the factory.

    Ah I realise the error of my comment. You are right. The shoes has to be tight in the first place for a wide 'V' to happen. That happens to my shoes as well (which are on the tight side so I end up tying the laces tighter to narrow the gap. I should have been more specific and said that the laces could be tied tighter, but that 'V' gap is just a personal aesthetic.

    I thought they were loose because the top of the 'V' on the lacing is almost an inch apart.

    Nice shoes! They look a little loose in the 2nd picture. How much did these set you back?

    I'm thinking of ordering some ties from For Belvedere, an online shop for Gentleman's Gazette blog. Does anybody have any experience/feedback on the quality and value of the ties? They have very nice designs and seem to have much better prices compared to Drakes. But I've never held either of them on my hands so I can't make that judgement. https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/shop/accessories/ties/ties-3-fold edit: Unless a particular Nazi Spaniard bespoke tie from Spain has better value?

    Would be a good place to start as any for the apprentice. I also thought that sleeve pitch might be the cause of the wrinkling at the sleeves.

    Thanks for the tips! Yes I used a spray bottle the second round and found it more convenient that way.

    Nice to know that. Not many people in the college-uni age are into tailored clothes.

    Concave shoulders are already down the pipeline for a next suit commission. Thinking of trying neapolitan style for casual odd jacket.

    Get him/her to help with Sava PAGE Tailor already has 71 votes. Runner up is 10. They posted the polling as an event in FB and they already have a decently sized following there.

    Thanks urban and 6. Think i finally managed to nail it last night. Turns out that using the shoe brush at the end kept giving it a low gloss. So I decided to opt out the brush and just used the cloth and keep going in circular motions for a much longer time than those youtube videos would show. Turns out it made it shiny and glossy. After lots of elbow grease, the shoe is pretty much how it was when I acquired it. https://www.instagram.com/p/BToZB3CAqm8/?taken-by=evan_loh Picture didn't quite capture that high gloss part at the toe cap.
