The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

"Well, seeing as you're my favorite cousin, so if I were to match someone, I'd probably rather match you. I also happy with dark red, so I'm easy either way." Talyn glanced at the racks of suits again. "How would to make gold and or black work with a suit? It works great with a dress, but with a suit? I guess you could lose the jacket, just have the waistcoat... What were you thinking?

"You would not be able to wear a double-breasted jacket." Zella said with a smile. "You would wear a black suit with a gold waistcoat and cravat or some-such." She eyed the suits and rifled through a few of them. "With a dress I would usually mix-and-match different parts, such as the sleeves of one dress and the bodice of another, and have them make it in my preferred colour. With a suit, we need to find a tail-coat and pants that match, but then we can have some fun with the cravat and waistcoat. So, go get the tailor to measure you, and then he can help us find something that will fit you."

The tailor reappeared from returning Zella's dress to a room out the back, and Talyn waved him over.

"I need to be measured for a suit. I will also need a tailcoat with pants, preferably black," Talyn said to the tailor.
"As for the waistcoats, and cravats, something with gold?"

Talyn turned to Zella again. "That was pretty much what you were thinking, right? Did I miss anything, or did you have further thoughts?"

"Only that eventually we will have to get you something made specially for you. You cannot go to every ball in a suit off the rack. It would give the wrong impression." Zella smiled at him, and then addressed the tailor. "We will need it tailored for him, and then I would like to order a few extra suits. If you can bring out your coat styles and such, he can try them on and I will let you know what ones to make, and in which colours."

The tailor nodded and waved Talyn to the back room.

The next half hour was spent trying on a particular style of suit, letting Zella have a look at it and getting her verdict, before going back and trying something else on for her to critique. After trying on what felt like the tailors entire stock, the supply of suits stopped coming.

Hopefully that satisfies Zella. At least she appears to enjoy doing this... I'm not sure if I could say the same...

He returned to the front room again, having changed back into the what he'd come in. Zella smiled as he walked back in.

"Zella, I do believe that you made me try on every suit that they currently have in this building. I do hope you saw at least something that you like the look of."

Zella grinned at Talyn. "I did, but what about you. It is you we are buying the suit for, after all, and unlike Silvan, I actually trust you to make good choices." She had seen quite a few things she liked on Talyn. His preference now was key. "And whatever you chose, we can always get it tailored in enough time. That way you will look the best you can for your first Luthadel ball. It is always exciting. I think I preferred you in the black and white, actually, but that is probably too dull."

"I'm happy with black and white. Its neat and formal without being over the top."

Talyn look around at some the styles displayed around the room. Hmm. Now what style... Zella already said no to double-breasted coats, which means we'll go with a single-breasted coat. I think I probably prefer the peaked lapel style, so maybe go with that...

"How about the black single-breasted jacket with peaked lapels with a black waistcoat, with a gold cravat to add some color and to match your own dress? Not sure about the length of the jacket though. What do you reckon?"



OoC Note: Over in the Perrault Ball Thread, I believe I've said he's wearing exactly this, except silver not gold.
