Back in May of last year when I was obviously far too flush for my own good, I went on a commissioning spree and dropped quite a number of dollars on various made-to-measure garments at Crane Brothers. In a two month period I believe I ordered something like five pairs of pants, two shirts and a blazer. I now have a pair of cotton pants in every functional colour under the sun (olive green, navy, charcoal, beige, etc) and this somewhat less functionally coloured pistachio green cotton blazer. I wore it extensively around Milan and Paris in June, then hung it back up for the winter. Yesterday, in a bout of sartorial enthusiasm, I dusted it off and tried it on again and despite a few wrinkles, it’s still good. However: The problem with this jacket is that it goes with beige pants and pretty much nothing else. A more frivolous purchase I have never made. Who’s bad?
I LIKE YOU!
