Jagnelli is back!
Very stylish. I need to know which Barbour jacket this is though: Classic Bedale, Ashby, Asian Fit Bedale?
The main problem with working with a traveling tailor is that commissioning garments can require long lead times. With only three or four visits per year, completing an order can take up to fifteen months if you require at least three fittings. On the upside, many traveling operations are quite good, which means if you have access to one, you can sometimes get something quite special.
Napoli Su Misura finished their most recent trip to the US earlier this month, with a stop by San Francisco just two weeks ago. At the visit, I was able to pick up my latest order. Included was a brown checked faux tweed from John G. Hardy’s Worsted Alsport book. I say “faux” because real tweed is a prickly, rough woolen, while “faux tweed” is a worsted wool made to look like the real thing. The rustic pattern gives the material some country charm, while the smooth texture allows it to be still business appropriate.
Wow, I love the fit and especially the details on this. This is what fine luxury tailoring should look like.

This is why I love all my music so much. I was listening to Beach House’s Teenage Dream a couple of weeks ago and suddenly this song pops up. The first thing I thought was: I know this. Didn’t take me long to remember that I heard it on good kid, maad city first. So Kendrick sampled Beach House for this song, and it’s just straight up brilliant. I love the technique of sampling when used as masterful as this. I love the idea of one piece of great music being the basis for another piece of equally great music. I love the way different genres can click together like this, making a bridge between the traditional categorizations that can be so limiting to people listening to different “genres”. I’m kinda rambling now, but either way: it was a nice discovery.
I kinda dislike almost everything about this. The buttoning point is too high, the pocket square ostentatiously folded with the label hanging out, jacket too short, sleeves unbuttoned etc etc.
But them shades though…
