Dapper Dan(ielle)'s Thread of Sartorial Delights
In a perhaps futile effort to try to give the music industry some sort of class, I've lately decided to step up my A-game in daily wear. I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where we can discuss some of the finer fashions of life. (read: You are going to talk about the best locations to get good deals on nice clothes and give up all your fashion advice, and I am going to steal them for myself.) Maybe we could even have a resource section in the OP, I dunno. I'll play it by ear.
My early Father's Day gift was a trio of hats from The Village Hat Shop: here (grey), here, and here. The Jaxon is put away until it's far colder, but the Stetson and the trilby have seen a lot of use already. Been getting a ton of comments particularly on the Stetson; I think the ladies love a good hat.
I also just ordered a bunch of pocket squares and a single test tie from The Tie Bar. No word yet on quality, but I'll let you know.
And finally, I found a local tailor who makes full bespoke clothing, and I've ordered my first bespoke shirt (well, more of a cross between bespoke and MTM, but you get the idea). I have never been able to find a nice dress shirt that fits in the neck but doesn't blouse enormously in the back of the waist. Some of those shirts, a strong wind would pick me up and take me away. Or, shirts that do fit pretty well use horrid fabric and construction, like those sewn pieces of sandpaper (that still somehow wrinkles like crazy) they call MX1 shirts at Express Men. Anyway, I'm excited to have a nice shirt in a fabric of my choosing, and getting to shake the hand of the man who will be putting it together.
How about you? What are you wearing today? Any comments, questions, feelings of hopelessness, regret, etc.?
