I finally found *just* the right shade of lavender socks, which seem to be heathered with a light charcoal; the evening has improved.
Stopped by Britex Fabric today - the most beautiful shop in San Francisco - in search of a nice wool tweed for a winter tie. I’ve been eyeing the wonderful selection at Shibumi (particularly this gorgeous herringbone), but it seemed a better opportunity to try making my own. An agonizing decision resulted in a yard of a deep oatmeal herringbone, plenty for two ties and some scraps for patching jackets. It will be untipped, lightly lined, and hopefully - if all goes as planned - feature something close to those beautifully rolled edges.
Anonymous asked: HOW WAS YOUR BIRTHDAY GURL
It was fun! One of my roommates led me on a journey into Oakland to find good donuts, I got a few things in the mail and from people, and am finishing the evening with tea and Jeeves and Wooster!
