so I was watching this show on Sundance about the legendary Savile Row and its bespoke tailors. this was like watching soft porn for me. I am an admitted sucker for fine clothes for men.I suppose it comes from my costume design training but even before that I just dug a well dressed man. you can take a bum and dress him in one of these suits and NO ONE will know that he's not a millionaire. clothes make the man. there is just something about a well dressed man that kneecaps me and these suits are the epitome of well dressed and well heeled. also there is such a tradition and aura of mystery about these shops and their clients and the discretion they practice. they're like the swiss bank of of suit making. they won't tell you who their clientele is while the client is alive. I just love it. I passed my love of fine men's clothing to my MC Eamon. He's been a client of the legendary Huntsman & Sons since the first world war and takes great pride in his clothing. he's a clothes horse but not in the obnoxious way. I like to think that his clothing adds to his powerful appearance and mystique.(like a vampire needs mystique). but I think his clothing and where he gets it from tells quite a bit about him. and I like that. I think about him in a Huntsman suit and my little heart just flutters!
