Perhaps due to my career in the past that taught me a lot on nurturing an eye on appreciated a piece of fine tailoring clothing, from a super fine 120s cotton shirt with mother-of-pearl buttons, to hand-stitched canvas super fine 150s suit in soft shoulder and tailored waist in notch lapel with opened button hole, observing these little delicate and well-made details and feeling the fineness of fabric with your hands are the ultimate enjoyment for a true fine menswear connoisseur just like appreciating a piece of art.
