For the last couple of weeks I’ve been very busy both at work and socially and have been meaning to make a blog post here for the last 2 weeks but never got around to it, until today that is when I have to admit to a ‘schoolboy error’ on my behalf about how I was incorrectly dressed!
I have had 2 Saturdays off recently, one to go to York Races on a stag do and then yesterday to go to the wedding.
It was whilst on the stag do that I had an idea for a post on here as to be honest I couldn’t believe how many men were at York Races wearing either a new jacket or a new suit. I could tell they were new garments because many had left the designers label on the sleeve and/or left the vents tacked up at the back – you know the look, a couple of big white cotton X’s on each side of the vent if it’s side vents or a single one if it’s a centre vent.
Now, whilst it might seem a good idea to let everyone know you’ve got an expensive designer jacket on, it’s not and the cuff labels should always be removed before wearing as leaving it on is a ‘little naff!’
As for the vents, these should always be opened as to be honest, you don’t want everyone to know you have a new jacket on or they might think you’ve borrowed it!
So that said, now it’s time for me to ‘fess up!’
This Saturday (29th June 2013), my wife and I attended the wedding of our Niece to her fiancé. For the occasion, I was wearing a stunning new suit, it was a French Navy single breasted Super 100′s by Digel and with this I wore a Rocola Blue on Blue striped shirt with white collar and cuffs, a Gold knitted silk tie and Tan Loake shoes, if I do say so myself, I felt great and was so confident that this was the look.
All was going well, the day was great and we were having a drink in the bar before the ceremony commenced when I went to get my wallet out of my back pocket, imagine my horror to find out, I had left the vents tacked up! What a school boy error!
