Back in October I wrote a blog called My Next Suit. It was a three quarter length photo of a heavy grey flannel three piece. I was obsessed. I’d seen a picture of it somewhere or other and saved it as my desktop image. I used to look at it every day like Wayne and that guitar: ‘It will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.’ A couple of weeks later Working Style called me up saying they were going to make me a suit. I sent them the picture and asked if it could be done. It could. I picked it up way before Christmas but due to all the craziness of the season and that new baby niece and the lack of friends and photographers in Christchurch and the heat and all the rest of it, I never got a chance to take pictures of it. So yesterday I called up my good friend James and asked if he wouldn’t mind doing the honours. I paired it with the pom pom beanie my Mum knitted for me, an old American Crew knitted tie and my Loakes. And yes, as the blue sky would suggest, it was 28 degrees outside. Slightly warm in a heavy three piece suit. I’m going to Europe tomorrow though, so I’m sure I’ll get good use from it there.
I LIKE YOU!
