I’ve wanted a PVC formal suit for many many years. My inspiration was this rather horrible 1997 film, Bombshell. Frank Whaley plays the antagonist who for the latter half of the film is in PVC. It’s not a good fit, to be fair, but I became inspired.
To be fair, this movie is a bit of a shiny fest!
It’s terrible though. The acting is wooden, the plot is shambolic, and the general feel of it is cheap.
A friend shared this with me, knowing my penchant for the shiny. I know the fit is slimmer than I normally wear (I’m normally a slim fit guy these days) but I thought it was stunning and ordered it straight away.
It should arrive Monday. I don’t think I’ll be able to wear it for the gig, but I’m sure it will get some use over Christmas.
I wondered about finding a waistcoat for it too.
If you want one, they’re from ASOS, but they are selling very well apparently so don’t wait!
