Help me, fandom. I had this nifty idea to sew red thread around the buttonholes of a black shirt (in honor of a certain beloved Belstaff). But as it turned out, the buttonholes were not sufficiently visible around the buttons to make that plan work.
So instead, I sewed the red thread into the buttons, as you can see. Two questions:
1) Does it make you think of the Belstaff at all, or have I totally lost that connection? If you saw someone in the street like this, would the sherlock part of your brain light up a little?
2) Even if it doesn’t work as a fan reference, is it cute? Or does it look stupid? I honestly can’t decide.
(never fear, I still have plenty of red thread – once I find the right coat or shirt, I will make this buttonhole plan happen. but in the meanwhile, I have to decide whether to keep the shirt this way, or turn it back to ordinary black.)
