Buster Keaton.
Whenever I get bored of suits or need ideas for myself or new products I always look at old black and white photography.  You can pick up on details but it always leaves more to the imagination.
You’d be surprised how inventive clothing was back in the day.  Take Buster’s crescent pockets for example (pic 5).  Or his super soft, stingy shouldered tuxedo (pic 2).  Or his thick crepe-esque oxfords (pic 3).  
You don’t really find things like that today, especially in these applications.

Ring Jacket MTO
Ring Jacket’s made-to-order program is pretty awesome.  If you fit into one of our 5 stock Ring Jacket fits, you can tweak the sleeve length, jacket length, and body directly from the factory.  Additionally, just like you would in a made-to-measure program, you get the added benefit of picking your own fabric and details like buttons, lining, and pockets.
My MTO above is in vintage Carlo Barbera silk from Ring Jacket’s summer trunk show.  This weekend they’ll be bringing another selection of winter-weight vintage Barbera cloths which we’ll be able to offer for MTO and MTM commissions.
Gross facial hair not included.

Ring Jacket Scotch Flannel Chalkstripe 3-piece.

Fukushima-san, Sasamoto-san, and Tani-san will be visiting the NYC store again this Friday and Saturday for MTO and MTM fittings.

One of the most exciting things about their visits is the small collection of vintage Carlo Barbera cloths that they bring with them, usually in such small lengths that it’s only enough for a single jacket or suit.  As pretentious and nerdy as it may sound, it’s a pretty cool feeling to have a piece of tailored clothing that’s really only yours.

Out & About: A visit to The Armoury NYC
In the same way that our online personas are rarely identical to the way we live “IRL”, I have found that stores usually offer very different experiences between their online presence and physical locations. On the one hand, there are great stores that have existed for decades and are just now beginning to realize the power of e-commerce. On the other, you have stores that dominate the internet but have a physical presence that doesn’t do the product justice. There are many degrees of this, but one thing is consistent: a store may have a great web presence or a great physical presence, but it is very rare to have both.
The Armoury seems to be the exception to this rule, as their new store in New York is a flawless extension of the brand’s powerful presence abroad and online.
