Back for Now

Much to the dismay of many of the readers of this blog it has been inaccessible for the past 6 months. To those of you that have spoken up I have listened to you and decided to open up access for the time being. This does not mean that I am back to posting regularly or that the blog will live on indefinitely but for the moment we are back. I hope you all enjoy it.

To commemorate the return I thought I’d drop a few pics of me getting to sport a tie and coat. These days this is a rare occasion. So when I have the opportunity I take it. I even had the chance to take a flick in my old stomping grounds. The nostalgia is on 10 here. One last thing. Vests do work well imho over sport coats as outerwear. Is it trad or not is whole other question.

    Great to see you back even if just for a post and it’s nice to be able to cruise the archives again. A great resource. You should consider getting a pattern going even if just to keep that open.

    Otherwise see you on insta!

    Regarding my previous post, that should Patreon not pattern. At least cover the hosting and domain registration at the very minimum.

    “Back for Now” was a heading that was a sight for sore eyes.
    “Back for Good” would be even better.
    Thanks for contributing to our enjoyment and knowledge.
