razl, where are you in the world? If in the US, a number of men's stores will have MTM from Samuelsohn, etc for about $700-800/suit. That will give you your traditional cut. If your main concern is a trimmer coat body on wider shoulders and a narrower waist on pants, I think that normal MTM might do the trick. If you are anywhere near NYC, the usual suspects (LS Tailors, Mr. Ned's) would be a good place to start - search threads to hear more about those.

I did love the Pinot. Turley is, I think, one of the wineries where Ehren Jordan is involved. Vaynerchuk also likes Neyer Zins, another one where Jordan is...
For those interested, here's a Vaynerchuk piece on Turley: http://tv.winelibrary.com/2007/01/10...s-episode-163/ He def liked the Pisenti, IIRC.
Just tried some of Helen Turley's work at Martinelli in Russian River this weekend (Bondi Home 2007 Pinot and at least two Zins). Really delicious stuff - how much are you thinking of ordering?

Saw this and thought of Kwilk - dude, hope you don't mind it in your thread. Just shows what a little plating (and almost complete 'reconstruction') can do: This: http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr....yzBuAClmXNc%3D Is a Wendy's baconator: http://www.fancyfastfood.com/page/1 Anyhow, thought the food-interested might find this fun.
Agree that it is nicely written - very 'men's magazine' writing style, which I am sure was the intent and which is a salable genre of writing if you are trying to make a little money on the side as a freelancer. That said, everything about it, from the references to bygone greats whom one might want to emulate to the clear brand plug was straight out of the GQ playbook. Nothing inherently wrong with it, but it reduces the credibility of the writing for me. There is...

I've figured out how to do each, e.g. ignore where B=Transfer and ignore where C<0, but don't know how to combine them. A few folks alluded to using array formulas for this. I figured I would add this to be a little clearer about an approach that I have used, it is one of my...

Nearby the University there's a super swanky little neighborhood which is apparently where all the...
