Dark shirt

I’ve been into dark shirts mode for last several years…doesn’t matter what season I’m in…

1d

This is C-POST 7 in navy poplin with self lining (means

A very practical choice for in-between seasons and chilly days.

Really works great as in-between shirts and jackets…..worn over a shirt or knit, or great slipping choice in winter layers…as it was originally designed to be.

2d

E-Z CRUZ in navy wool flannel.

My current mainstay in early Fall and winter, start wearing over shorts…then with sage/khaki~stone~blue denim 5 pockets.

Royal Traveler 2014 FW

RT is shifting…

1r

towards a direction.

2r

Which is subtle….yet noticeable.

3r

Originally a vest meant to be worn over anything…

based on my fun experiments with vintage hunting vests…

practically worn over anything…. T-shirt, shirt, knits, denim jackets, flight jackets, work jackets, tweed jackets, various coats……..

4r

So the RT’s fit pattern was made accordingly…

5r

Yet now, I’m more interested in wearing RT like a conventional vest….

which is usually worn under jacket.

The fit is starting to be adjusted accordingly from this season.

P.S.

A great sunset in Tokyo!

psr

Light Deco

I found out that I’ve been into Deco stuff again recently…

1d

This time, I’m feeling like lighter Deco…or Deco – inspired kinda…

2d

Somewhat more casual….more versatile….

3d

P.S. photos – Sept.’14

Here’s some P.S. like photos from these days…

Salad-UDON. Need vegetables.

Hamburg-DON. Love it w/fried egg.

p2

Kitty filled with strawberry jam.

p3

@ deli counter on a gas station. Vino?

p4

Cloud view from the station.

p5

Not bad? NO…it’s good. A twisty copped idea from Royce’s choco-covered potato chips?

p6

WHY?

p7

Into Zippo again….beat-up ones must look especially great with clean tailored suits or tweed jackets….or cashmeres.

p8

New ones don’t come with these…..TIMEs.

Vintage UPDATE

Wahington DEE-CEE, circa 1960s

f1

Hardly unearthed…..yet nothing special, nothing vintage…

f2

Without this label….

f3

and these logo’d buttons, it is quite conventional except real “moody” rounded pockets.

f4

I like these 45-degree’d cuff keyhole…..since the first time I saw them on their zippered jacket in 1970s.

f5

This jacket must have come with these label when new.

(This label is from different jacket from later period)

f6

Felt like Nylon Anti-Freeze from Mc…

f7

I remember my size was 44….back in 80s…so I acquired 44 again.

f8

It is kind of….baggy on sleeves. I don’t remember they had pleats at cuffs???
