I must admit I was a tad nervous after posting this blog about Murray Crane last week. Sure, he'd started the ball rolling with his Help Wanted ad, but you never know how people are going to react when you tell it like it is. I emailed him the blog, and didn't hear anything back for two days. Finally, on the third day, I received a one liner from him. Six words long. It read: I'll make you a maroon suit. If that sounds completely out of context, rest assured it's not. I'd blogged about maroon suits here and here last week, and I'm pretty much obsessed with them right now. So I went in on Monday to choose the fabric (see below), then I had my first fitting yesterday. It's going to be a short, three button roll-lapel jacket, with pleated, tapered, cuffed and cropped pants. Just what I always wanted. I'll post progress reports as it happens.
I LIKE YOU!
