Day 5: Suit & Tie challenge

It maybe a public holiday here in Australia but that’s no reason to let dress standards slip.

So yes, I am well suited up today. Although I like to dress it down with a collared t-shirt and sneakers.

This is the suit that had the fly blow out. It has now been repaired now but too much Christmas chub means I can’t quite fasten the waist button if I also want to breath.

Never fear, I say. Don’t let a little Christmas pud hold you back!

Day 5: Suit & tie challenge

Everybody's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed (wo)man

By the way for all you tie aficionados out there, today’s’s little ripper is a brown and orange checked seersucker made under the label of Grand Park. I washed it as it was quite revolting with food stains and then I had to iron it!

The suit is DEFINITELY made in Hong Kong, it says it inside. The nice lady who repaired the blown out fly told me it was a ‘Cheap suit’. But it looks worth every one of the 2000 cents I spent on it.

If you can't read it the label says Yangtzekiang Garment Mtg.Co.Ltd

I don’t think the fluoro work lights give a good indication of the weave of this nicely tailored suit…

The suit may be 'cheap' but I like the cut of it's jib

      If I knew how to make a smaller knot I’d do it.
      But then all my ties are fat so a skinny knot probably wouldn’t look all that great

    Now I’m thinking that a year of ties might be a good idea? I mean I love the suits – but ties…. I ADORE ties…..

    • Year of Denim says:

      Great idea.
      you should do it…
      I am about to run dry in the tie department.
      Local Vinnies only has very nasty 1990s early noughties and they are disgusting.
