I asked earlier via e-mail if extreme cutaway before I got there, and I asked again, even showing multiple pictures of...

Quote: Originally Posted by Lonneker Funny how a thread about Chan turns into an endorsement for PL Don't let the title fool you; the thread is about finding a tailor that fits the OPs budget.

Liking or disliking New York depends greatly the degree to which one is inclined to use what the city offers.

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...
