Second Fitting and Proms

Posted on 2011/07/31 19:58:01 (July 2011).

[Tuesday 26th July 2011]
Off to Savile Row at lunchtime for the second fitting of my suit. It wasn't a drastic change from the last time I'd seen it - the stitching on the jacket was still all temporary - but the trousers were pretty much finished, and the jacket had a bit more definition, and pockets. Apparently it should be just a month or so now until the finished article is ready to collect.

In the evening, a colleague had arranged for a few of us from work to go to the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall - and better still he'd booked a box for us. Whilst I'm not sure I actually particularly enjoyed the music (something by Liszt and a couple of other composers whose names I forget) it's my first time to be in a box at any kind of performance like this - and I rather liked that. Particularly given that you can have drinks and nibbles in there, which made it a much more sociable occasion. Also had dinner at the RAH before the performance in their cafe/restaurant, which was actually pretty good.
