My new book The Sartorialist: Closer is almost ready to ship, so I wanted to give a few of my readers a chance to get it first!
What is the item of clothing that you dreamed about the most but never actually ended up wearing??
For me it was this made-to-measure Ralph Lauren wool/cashmere, light grey, very stylized sportscoat. Â I really dreamed of wearing it with grey flannels or dark denim and brown suede shoes;)) I must have been having a very Fred Astaire moment when I ordered it because I don’t know where I thought I would wear it. Â I would feel too self conscious wearing this jacket, it would look great on others but not me. Â This jacket has been sitting in my closet for about 4 years and every August I start thinking about the fall and say, “This is the year I make it work!”
Well, this August I say “This is the year I finally throw this jacket out.”
So… share with us!
