If the suit fits...

After spending several hours carefully calculating on my calculator, my grandfather's antique abacus, the Aztec sun calendar, and more than a few shakes of my all-knowing magic 8-ball, I’ve come to the shocking conclusion that I buy more outfits than I blog. In fact I buy more outfits than I wear….prolly even more than I unpack!! I know, I know, I'm even more surprised than you are!! In an effort to make alms for my clothes hoarding sins, I decided to share a veritable shite load of suits today - as a bonus, I decided to use Tempura Island as my backdrop so I could add halfarsed tour guide to my resume!! And on that note….



The modern black suit by Hasendow is my all time favorite black suit…it's awesomely detailed and comes with a butt load of options, with prim cuffs to boot. It’s the kind of black suit that could put the “fun” back in funeral. Virtual tourists take note, there are some real pretty trees at Tempura Island!! They say on certain days when the light is just right you can see an almost ghostly Wrath Paine wandering through the forests there on his endless search for the perfect tree. If you liked the pretty yellow trees, check out the crystals behind me while I wore the Business Suit in Olive from Simone - this suit is simple, with only three layers, but it's well drawn and I loved the gold tie…it lets you be all business without the no-fun aftertaste!!



Next on our tour de farce is Random’s Big Shot Suit in Grey, a nice single breasted, light, two layer suit, with a pile of different colored shirts and ties to spice it up. Behind me, in Tempura Island, is this cool fish tank thing or port hole or….ok, I totally forget what it was, but hey, it's not like I got paid, so there! This tweed suit from 1-800 Betties is another favorite….brill texturing and a great double breasted look with a handful of prims added in for good measure…the obvious choice for skulking around the island's marshy parts.



Bazaar's Antoine Suit is technically not a suit…heh…my ten second attention span being what it was, I think I forgot I was sampling them and got enamored by the big pink tie!! I do like their take on the classic look though, with the low riser pants and tailored vest. Back there are more trees, but not just any trees, these trees are….hmmm, ok, they're just more trees. The gold Italia Suit from Armidi was so pimp on that store hanger, I had to have it - just your basic layers, but it's gold!! If this blog had a soundtrack, you'd so be hearing gold member right about now. Also, this suit gave me a chance to show you just how elite my photography skills are…I mean, who else would have thought to put on a gold suit and then go find golden flowers to stand in front of?? Don't try this at home kids, when you got it, you just got it.



I think if I had to rename the Affair suit from Bazaar, I'd call it 'buttons gone wild suit'…I like the cut of the suit, and they added some prim cuffs and all, but the hell if there isn’t a button in the middle of the tie and every second button is bigger than the next?? Or maybe it’s the drugs talking, you be the judge. I went back to the island's crystal mines for the pics because it's actually one of the biggest bling mines in-world - day and night, workers mine these babies and break down their precious bling gems to tiny slivers, which then get distributed in pimp and hooker boots, belts and paraphenalia across the grid!! Worth the price of admission, no? Last suit and thank goodness, this fech is long and I'm running out of steam (ie – getting sober)…not too many options on this suit, but the Capri suit from Sartoria Italiana just shouts spring to me…and the cuffs??...erm, I forgot to take them off from the last suit (takes a bow). To the back is the pretty, aqua blue, shiny tree that signals the end of the tour. Please unload from the right and don’t forget your cameras and other valuables. Feel free to leave your phone number if you’re single and your hands are under size 50 - Dove and I will go through them and notecard you if you’re eligible for our super elite treehouse bed of love tour.

ok my hands are under 50... call me :)

I love the gold Armidi suit, it reminds me of Southern Baptist preachers. They'll lecture you on hellfire and brimstone and a good 3 piece suit.

Number 2 - the Simone Suit. Want.

Will we now just be getting one uberblog per month, Lawless? And why does everyone have to keep carrying on about spring? No love for the winter...?

Tuli Asturias said...

There's something incredibly hot about a guy in a good suit. I wish more guys decided to wear one. Especially to a high end event LOL, I can't believe how many men have no clue how to dress formal.
Nice selection!

Lawless McBride said...

Wrath Paine said...

DUDE!! You are blocking the trees! You need to fire that photographer.

You know, I never even considered trying to match my attire with my surrounding trees - wow, the inspiration I get from this blog just boggles the mind sometimes!

Now, where to find a pair of autumn brown wide-wale corduroys to go with my forest green button-up, hmmm...

Rylan Carling said...

You never cease to amaze...now the talent comes out to be able to color coordinate with your surroundings? Does it ever end with you? LOL hey...I fit all the requirements...I want an invite to the infamous treehouse!!!! My magic 8-ball says YES!

The suits are delicious!! Nothing beats a hottie looking well groomed.
