And Tama has decided to double-down on his sass. He is a sass MACHINE.
I had a very exciting day today, as the local Tailor of Fine Coats and Suits, Denver Bespoke let me know my custom Sherlock coat was ready for pickup! The journey of this coat was a pretty big challenge for me. I really, really struggle to treat myself to…well…anything really. I will almost always leave things I like at the store, unable to justify spending money for something as silly as myself. So one of my New Year’s resolutions was to try to be okay with getting myself things every now and again. My first challenge was to indulge my
obsession casual enjoyment of the BBC show “Sherlock” by getting a Sherlock coat. I’m also a glutton for coats, which made the decision easier. However, after about a week of searching, I nearly gave up on the idea. Discouraged, I posted to Twitter that I was having trouble, and within 10 minutes Paul Taylor of Wapsi Square found me a place that not only specialized in unique coats (Sherlock style among them) but were practically in my backyard! So after several months, discussions on fabrics (heavy and plush Irish donegal tweed with flecks of white, silver, and black + shimmering purple lining), and tweaks to the design, I at last have an amazing long coat to giddily fight crime take casual walks in.
I may have also recorded my latest Kickstarter Update video in it…as I didn’t want to take it off…
The video also talks about some of the cultural surprises and challenges that are involved with printing in China. So if you’re thinking of using a Chinese printer for a future book, I’d recommend you take a look!
