oops, dbl post.

Wearing Invasion Barbare today. Can't tell if I really like it or think it's generic, but the bust-bottle they have is God awful.
I suppose pushing the schedule back would benefit people using local tailors and CMT MTM programs. That would be a nice plus.I agree, the turnaround time for traveling tailors is less than ideal. Some tailors don't even visit cities four times a year, so depending on who you use, you could be waiting 1.5 years to get something back (that was my schedule with one of the tailors I used to use).
