20th June 2011: Money-back guarantee, you said. Still waiting for the briefcase, but apart from that I'm ready to work for HDSVADL.
14th June 2011: Lots of progress! The hat has red trim. We just sewed a new ribbon over the old one.
The glasses have had the novelty lenses taken out so I can actually see.
The jacket has had the lapels sewn down and most of the plaid pattern has been drawn on with a permanent marker. It's not very smart at the moment, but it looks alright.
Images to follow.
10th May 2011: Hooo boy The jacket arrived, as did a pair of glasses I forgot I bought.
It's not what I expected...
It's very cheap, and doesn't look like a suit jacket. The collar is slightly padded, and doesn't extend round the back. Plus it doesn't button up.
On the other hand, it's a jacket. I've spent months looking for the right jacket, and there haven't been any perfect matches. It's going to be modified anyway, and it's not like I'm going to wear it much.
Now to find the fabric paint...
10th May 2011: Slowly coming together Finally, an update.
I've managed to find a jacket. It's part of a gangster costume, and I had to buy the whole jacket/trousers/hat set just to get it. It's plain yellow at the moment, so I'll have to find some fabric paint or something to paint on the plaid stripes.
Trousers, shirt and shoes have all been located. I'm fairly certain I have a briefcase somewhere.
5th January 2011: It begins The hat arrived. It needs a red trim.
