Who wore it better?

Although it’s an absolutely terrible film, this guy was the one who made me realise that three piece suits could be leather.

I saw him in it when he was in the audience at a celebrity comedy event – the host commented on it and he said it was costume from “Spice World – The Movie”.

Of course I admired him in it very much and decided that I would own such an item.

Well it took me a few years, but eventually I did “the look”.

I’m not quite sure who suits it better though?

New waistcoat coming tomorrow…

After my sheer delight at how smooth and soft the leather is on my Higgs Leather trousers, I’ve decided to order a matching waistcoat. My blazer isn’t too dissimilar so I’m not bothering with that, but it will be really delightful to have a new leather suit which not only fits me, but is as soft and comfortable to wear as any fabric one.

This is the softest waistcoat I own. Sadly it’s missing a button. It’s still not as good as the trousers though.

New Van; New Trousers

A week of new things. First my new van arrived on Monday. A Transit Custom in Blue Chrome. It looks amazing parked next to the Jag!

Then, on Tuesday my new leather trousers from Higgs Leather arrived. Of course I tried them on straight away! A great fit, if a little long.

They look really nice as part of a suit too although the very high quality leather makes my waistcoat look poor, so I’ve ordered a new one to match.

Earlier was the task of shortening them…

A job I’ve done many times. I always use Copydex. It doesn’t go hard, and it always stays up.
