so nobody has responded to my super well-researched question about how bloomingdales compares to random other shop... j/k, so after reading through all these fits i still can't figure out which one is this: or slideshow: as i recently procured this suit on a whim and it fit so well i immediately ordered one of those bloomingdales ones (for a frankly...
hard to say - i'm not at all scientific about fits, but notice i do well with EU52 out of italy in general - caruso, boglioli, RLBL, etc. one thing that is always a bit off is the shoulder; i always have shoulder dimples (although usually only on one side). i got an eidos suit from trunk, and it's so far my best-fitting suit, so i'm hoping the shoulder/drape or whatever one calls it will be similar. one day i will invest in a bespoke suit and make sure to follow the...
ah - for some reason i figured all the suits would have more or less the same fits. if i were to purchase an eidos suit from trunk clothiers, for example, how would it compare to the bloomingdales suits? i took advantage of the sale to snag one, but won't even see it until the end of december, and am wondering if i can assume the fits will be similar...
glenfarcas 12but then again, i would never spend my own money on macallan of any vintage.
i cannot fathom how you could consider the 10 to be superior to the 18, but i do kind of envy the financial implications for you of that preference.talisker is one of my favorite distillers - i think the storm and the port ruighe are both more interesting than the 10, which I enjoy but it's only marginally less expensive than those two.
i won a bottle of 21 from a tasting once - it's quite nice, but seemed not nearly smooth enough for a 21 year old.for the money i would go with the 18 talisker, which is similar on the salt, though also peatier.
sorry, i didn't realize it didn't say it. that would be emirati dirham and i think these were 4cl servings. i got into trouble on a different occasion with some glenfiddich 18 after someone told me a completely incorrect exchange rate.
came across this a couple months ago - couldn't manage to expense the macallan 57 unfortunately... i will put in a good word for the caol ila muscatel distiller's edition - certainly in the running for my best bottle for the money.
well, at least nothing lost in repair costs - thanks again!
thank you for the reply and the insight - this doesn't sound promising as far as prognosis goes. would you go back to the manufacturer with this or will they wonder why it took me so long to see it?
