I think I woke up this morning with the intent to dress smart simply because I was headed to the tailor and the fact that I wanted to make the right impression. That, I dress well, in the right manner, complemented by the right manners. To some extents, I'm a sucker for decorum.
Style rule: Wow, I can't get over how good a double breasted jacket looks buttoned. It's a rule I've straddled because at times I feel constricted, however the buttoned up look is all that. I'm sure you'll agree. There's a touch of elegance to those gold buttons. I say that because whenever I took the jacket off the buttons would make this sound like loose coins. I'd have this confused look on my face like 'I know I didn't put any coins in my pockets'.
I think I'll post next week, some time, about my experience at the tailor's but when I walked in I was about my business and the store clerk greeted me with a "good morning sir, how may I help you"...
