Three patterns yesterday. Four if you count the socks.
This is one of my favorite suits in the spring-summer-early fall rotation, a vintage silk-wool Corbin number, although it needs a wee bit of tailoring given the recent weight loss. The coat is a little large around the middle now, but not excessively so. Only a tailor or menswear enthusiast (Nerd?) would notice.
To everyone else, I am just that overly dressed weirdo with the nearby Panama hat and small thermos of coffee working over by the library windows early each day. Happy Friday everyone!
I moisturized and shined these shoes last night, since our blasted internet was down again (Dial-up was more reliable 25 years ago!), using a combination of Saphir Renovateur, Allen Edmonds shoe cream, Kiwi wax, and Saphir neutral high gloss wax, plus one of my late maternal grandfather's horsehair shoe brushes and an old nylon stocking for the final mirror shine effect on the toes and heels. They are absolutely stunning now. I'll share a photograph on Saturday.
