Ha ha ha well that's a funny rule, but I have solid-colored black, blue, and grey shirts that long actually that are a little flowy. Plus a black micromini. So I figure I can make them work one way or another.

where'd you get them? I tried getting a shirt that would serve that purpose and it's a good shirt but not long enough.

I dunno! I'll go look at the tags when I get home. One of them is from the Gap I think. Look, you don't actually have to adhere to that rule so super-duper strictly...in my opinion it's okay if some legging-clad crotch peeks through an otherwise fairly long top. Just sayin'.

Oh yeah! And normally I hate hate hate American Apparel but they do have these cotton/jersey chemises that work great with leggings if you're a tall person, and maybe if you're a small person and get a smaller size? Hit in just the right spot. My American Apparel hate also dissipates when it comes to the need for a large stock of basic leggings for yoga, wearing under things, etc., because they are very high quality and long enough (if expensive).

I'm definitely not skinny, but I actually like their t-shirts better than most because the women's ones are cut for curvy bodies. I hate standard t-shirts because if they fit over my chest and/or hips, they are huge around my waist, and the AA ones don't have that problem. I have to size up at least one size or else wear it snug though.

New suit! Custom-made overseas and now en route (meaning I have to take it myself - they've even outsourced local delivery) to the local tailor for the final fitting. But it's quite dashing, I think. And I must say the tailored shirt is way more flattering than ones I normally get at Winners. Which is too bad because I can't afford tailored shirts.

Thanks!

I got it from this place. Basically, it's one of them outsourcing joints. I went in for a fitting a while back, we got my measurements took, picked out all the material from swatches, and designed the suit. They shipped that off to I don't know where, where it got made and sent this way. So yesterday I did a second fitting on the suit, and there are a couple alterations to be made, so I have to run the suit up to their Toronto tailor on the weekend. It's all quite a process.

At some point during this process, maybe we can visit the smoking room?

Th guy on the right is a Kwa-Gulth beaver by Richard Hunt, who is a pretty prominent Native Canadian artist from Victoria, which is where I'm from. It's the printer's proof for a print edition that my father put out in, what, the late eighties when he ran a print shop. I'm quite happy it ended up on my wall.

It's awesome! I have some prints that I need to get framed that I got in Seattle in 2004. One of them is a hummingbird.

You look like a really snazzily-dressed docent in that photo! What with the artwork and all.

You do look rather like a docent! That is a sharp suit, indeed, dude; I'm curious, what made you go three-button instead of two?

Also I broke down and bought some stuff today. Nothing too remarkable, just clearance stuff at some outlet stores, but it was remarkable for the fact that I can now wear a comfortable XL and even had to go to L in these Brooks Bros sport shirts. Everything fits so much better now  I haven't been able to wear an L anything since I was a teenager.

Well, I wanted a vest, and I wanted the vest to button up relatively high. Which kinda also means that the jacket should button up high. So, three buttons. Or so I reasoned. Without the vest I woulda gone two buttons.

I bought a pair of Birkenstocks yesterday on impulse! I haven't owned a pair of sandals in probably five or six years. Used to live in these things when I was a teenager; they're still up there with the most comfortable footwear I've ever owned.

They're expensive here, too. $120 or thereabouts, if I remember correctly.

I've exclusively worn Birkenstocks as soon as it gets even remotely warm for 20 odd years now. I like them. Although technically the last two pairs maybe aren't quite Birkenstocks, as they were hand-made from Birkenstock parts by the local cobbler. Who is now retired so I don't know what I'm going to do when these ones die.
