Gate way to a Fasionable Addiction.

"It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."
                                                                                                  - Alexander McQueen




When I pulled my suit out of it's bag today, I couldn't help but recall the day I purchased it. I had an idea about what I was after; a charcoal windowpane check. 

Sale time at Henry Bucks equates to a store packed full of suits, accessories and people, but in some kind of "meant to be" way, I walked straight up to the rack full of ready to wear suits in my size and there it was, exactly what I wanted. Of course I wanted to have it tailored to my liking and being one of my first suits, I had immense fun in doing so and learnt a lot about the process. To this day I still enjoy wearing it and I know in many years to come I will (just as long as I don't let myself go too much around the mid-section).

So this suit was my first hit - a gateway drug into tailoring. It's an addiction that I'm happy to admit to.
