But if it fits, even the plainest thing will look smashing. See Cary Grant. Two things: 1) Construction (workmanship) isn't the same as fit. Aesthetics includes fit. 2) Depending upon the individual's measurements and skill of the measurer, MTM can appear to fit as well as fully custom...

I don't know if what you said is true but I think it is irrelevant. I wouldn't prioritize construction over aesthetics. I agree with dragon8 and, as I walked past Chan's store last week looking for sushi, steered a friend of mine towards Armani MTM over Chan for that reason.

Outside of industry, your ability to articulate experiences does more to improve your...

Target schools are more important than their rankings. Firms typically have sets of schools they recruit from and schools with a large number of firms who recruit there are considered target schools. Lots of international target schools aren't ranked or are ranked significantly lower than they should be, as the rankings aren't consultant or banking specific. You'll have to do your own research to determine which schools are target but the b-school rankings are...
Quote: Originally Posted by Matt see the post above it. It suggested you become a plumber. You will probably make more money. That's not a joke. I'd probably say the highest proportion of independently wealthy dudes I know at the moment are the ones who went to trade school out of high school. There are a few reasons for this. 1. while we were accumulating student debt, they were earning wages as apprentices and having their trade schooling paid...
Quote: Originally Posted by Annadale I have seen inside a few Chinese factories, ranging in size from 30 employees to 3000. I can honestly say that I did not see children working, nor would I have expected to, these were mainly high tech plants with machinery that a child would definitely not had the capacity to operate. China makes good product at a good price, though how competitive it will be in the future is debatable, given current trends. I...
