I very much like WW2-style British military jackets with their pronounced shoulders.

I was with Trousermaker B last night, sitting next to him while he made some changes to the side adjusters on a trousers. Out of the blue, he asked if I have bush jacket jobs. He said he knows of a woman who sews bush jackets and she is not getting enough jobs. I asked him if he meant she sews only bush jackets---a bush jacket maker. Yes, he said. I have found a bush jacket specialist.

Trousermaker B said he will call her and make arrangements for me to meet her.

That was last night. Just now, the bush jacket maker called me. I'll be going to visit her in her house later tonight.

While I wait for my dolsot bibimbap to be served, here's my experience with the bush jacket maker. I'll make it brief: She's dumb as fuck. Useless to me.

Every conceivable way. Every single way. Just too low IQ to do more than physically survive and produce progeny.

Had some time this morning to take pictures of my utility jacket bought a while ago. Indigo dyed cotton twill. Most likely will fade rather aggressively so this will have to be dry cleaned. I might like the patina which is developing but is it a sacrilege to dye it back to this original dark hue once I am tired of the washed look? 

 

The slanted front bottom pockets are something I did not think I would enjoy as much but I do with the number of times I don this. Gave up doing fit pics after a few tries so these will have to do.

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.
