Something I read that is germane to this threak: "[Ralph] Lauren received a last-minute invitation from [Cary] Grant to go to the racetrack. ‘I told him I had on jeans and a blazer and he said, ‘You can’t wear that.’’ After a quick trip to the store for some proper flannels, the two took off to the track—in Grant’s Buick." Cary is judging you all.

I read the last few pages of this thread on my phone and not in one sitting so I may too have missed something. But I read the subtext of some of these posts to mean, "because I don't see bespoke suits posted, they must not be doing well" or "the health of a tailor can be traced to its presence in circles that know clothes."

Sad to hear. I had hoped to get around to trying them out next year. However, consistency is something that I look for. I'm not (as) obsessive about details as most, but really strive to have a consistent product; regardless of whether that means each time is consistently better or, at least, consistently the same.
