An Odd Jacket

Sometime last year, I bought a length of The London Lounge’s Etna cloth - a heavy 20oz cashmere jacketing, made with a double faced grey/ brown herringbone (brown on one side, grey on the other). It’s a wonderful material and I was going to have it made into a jacket until The London Lounge came out with their brown herringbone tweed, which is even more in line with what I’ve been looking for. Rougher, fuzzier, and more autumnal, it’s now on its way to Steed to be made into a patch pocketed, single-breasted sport coat.

So now I’m in possession of a double-faced cashmere that I’m not sure what to do with. I thought about selling it back on the market, but it’s such a lovely material that I’d hate to lose it. No, the only way forward is to have something made from it — something unusual enough to make the jacket different from the brown herringbone tweed Steed is making me. 

But how can one make a jacket odd?

Coworker came in wearing this cat-eared hat. So, of course, I had to grab it from her and take pictures.

Most gorgeous capture of the night. Whomever the photographer was should feel EXTRA proud of him/herself. And, once again, a HUGE congratulations to @lupitanyongo for her Oscar win! She’s obviously had the BEST 2014 so far! The rest of us are just gonna have to make due. LoL

Can we PLEASE get over this bullshit and move on?!? Allow me to list a bunch of LEGENDS that never got a Grammy: Diana Ross, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Run D.M.C., Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin, Tupac, Guns N’ Roses, Biggie, Journey, The Who, The Ramones, The Grateful Dead, Kiss. 
If you like Kendrick Lamar, buy his music. If you don’t like Macklemore, DON’T buy his music! It really IS that simple! As you can see by the above list, a little statue doesn’t mean a damn thing In the end.
