I don't know what the point is of selling only in half-meter lengths, unless it is to parcel out the cloth in vest sized pieces so as to make it available to more customers. If so, why would they allow that?
I visited that place once but it was on San Pablo in Berkeley (what was a very bad neighborhood in my school days and didn't look like an obvious spot for a fine wine store in 2012). Same place? I've read a little about it. I do recall seeing a lot of fine and rare bottles there and mentioning it to Slewfoot, who basically said "Don't."
I had a magnum of 1983 Prieurre Lichine. It was a good bottle, not spoiled in the least, but definitely over the hill. Not showing any signs of rot, just clearly past its peak. Terrific on the nose, but about 50% of what you could smell you could not taste. Probably a great bottle 10-15 years ago.
Sorry, but this is wrong. The tweed suit is a staple that long pre-dates the tweed odd jacket, which when it first appeared was considered sort of a middle class cheat to get around paying for a full suit.
