My useless skillz

Here is some random stuff: I know completely useless and random facts. And I have a ridiculously large knowledge of men's haberdashery. Seriously. I know all this random stuff about stitching on suits, the lay of the buttons, patterns of fabric, appropriate ties for occasions, the differences between italian and english and american suits, what kind of material lays nicest against certain body types, and how choose the right cloth for any occasion.
I'll tell you what this knowledge is for. It's so that I can totally geek out over this totally awesome blog I found that I freaking love so much cause it knows so so so so so so so much more than me and I love learning about pointless things.
I hope I marry someone who is going to need to wear a lot of fancy suits.

3 piece suits make me melt. Every time.

Take Courage

There are these two signs I see everyday, one coming in, one going out of London. They are so inspiring, and I love seeing them everyday. The one above is the one I see as I leave. It's wonderful because immediately after the sign, I go into a tunnel, and the tunnel takes me from cityscapes to country side. That sign is like my portal to Narnia.

This one though, is my favorite. It is the sign I see as I go to work, and its background is the dome of St. Paul's cathedral, the Tower Bridge, and an old Norman Church. I'll try to snap a picture on my in someday, but for now, you'll have to have the ground level version. Isn't it lovely?
And doesn't perfectly capture the ideals of London circa WWII?
