Gig ready!

New green shirt. Green waistcoat. Putty coloured jeans. Looking rather dapper I think, but I think I’ll be terrified to sit down for fear of dirty arse syndrome.

Waistcoat Wednesday

I should do this more often… I love wearing suits. However, today I didn’t have enough time to suit up, so it’s one from the archives.

I have the full suit for this one. It’s from Burton if you’re fancying the same outfit.

BMI normal.

Whilst I don’t actually trust BMI as a way of indicating health, I do understand that it can be used carefully as a guide.

Today I weighed myself and at 86.8kg I now fit within the weight range of normal (although I’m still at the top end of the range).

I’m now fitting into 36″ waist trousers, including these rather amazing leather ones which look rather stunning if slightly dapper mixed in with this beautiful waistcoat.

…although this would be more my general office wear.

Absolutely no editing!

Android wear (Wear OS) has really come on since last time I had a device (Moto 360).

My Blue Suit

I recently shared a photo of my blue suit on Instagram (@nomenloony) and I’ve received quite a few nice comments about it.

The suit is one I’ve been looking for the perfect version of for years, but I’ve never found one with quite the right fabric or cut. Often the ones you see people wearing to parties are not good quality, or the fabric is not nice to touch.

It came out of a total accident though – a trip to Meadowhall, or more specifically Next, to buy a new suit after my weigh loss had left me with hardly any that fit. Next proved to be fruitless – all the nice suits were skinny fit.

I then tried M&S and found the cut and styling to be drab, and the prices ridiculous for what you were getting (especially considering they were made overseas using cheap labour).

Whilst walking past Burton I just decided to pop in. I wasn’t optimistic.

Turns out I was wrong! Their range was nice and my sizes were available.

I bought two suits. The bright blue one, and one with a lot more teal in it (that’s for a separate post).
