    Yeah, they usually pay better attention to detail but it sticks out like a sore thumb when browsing. Reminds me of the pre-tailoring images from Joe's review of JCrew Crosby suiting a while back.

    Got my Bonobos suit. Jacket fits pretty well. I mis-guessed my pants size and would need to exchange if I wanted to keep the suit.

    Not sure I'm digging the whole thing as a suit though... the Colonel Sanders vibe is rather strong. I'm contemplating just keeping the jacket, though that is potentially redundant with a khaki cotton jacket I already have.

    I went ahead and ordered the seersucker suit as well, just for kicks... I mean, if I find a light-colored cotton suit overly costumey, the odds are slim that I would be able to take myself seriously in baby blue seersucker. But we'll see I guess.

    I finally pulled the trigger on a pair of Common Projects Achilles Low in white. Opumo had a sale and they had my size in stock. I took it as a sign! Common Projects have been talked about so much they're almost passe, but I've received more comments about these then any other recent purchase.

    Bit of a splurge this last couple of weeks. Picked up 3 Spier & Mackay polos in their last deal. Grey is definitely my favorite in terms of fabric feel. It has this really nice brushed cotton thing going on on the inside. Blue is a little stiffer in feel. Ironically, I went with the deal because I've been looking for a white polo, and it turns out it's my least favorite. Fabric doesn't feel as nice as the others. The search continues ....





    And I finally bought a light brown linen blazer in Massimo Dutti's in-store sale for $99. This thing is light weight, which is perfect for where I live. Sleeves need tailoring, and I'd like to have it taken in a little at the waist, but overall fit is pretty good OTR. Also want to change the buttons; not crazy about the contrast with the ivory colored ones it has now.

    I was pretty close to grabbing that seersucker too, but I don't think I'm quite confident enough yet to rock that suit... There are always seersuckers up on ebay for under 100 bones, may have to start there.

    Thank you! Normally not a fan of long wings, but I was able to get these for a crazy good price, and couldn't pass them up.
