Why do you post travel related questions in this thread and not under travel?
Add the misuse of the word "bespoke" to this.
When we were last in London we found a truly unique wool/cashmere throw (in a hunting shop) that we keep on our leather sofa in the den. My wife uses it almost daily now and regularly comments on what an enjoyable purchase it has been.We shop a lot when we travel, especially in quirky and out-of-the-way stores, markets and workshops. We live by the mantra that if we see something special and if we have a place for it, we buy it. We don't go crazy for expensive things, just...
If you both show up wearing your tuxedos, I'll post pics for a "Who Wore It Best" challenge.
Let me know when you are ready to place another MTM order. I'm enjoying my Inglese shirts and would like to add a few to my closet.

The ad campaign with Metallica seems like a "Hail Mary" pass at trying to score with a new audience. The designer, O'Shea, says his influence is "70's pimp". Good luck to them. Wilkes Bashford carried Brioni for as long as I can remember (since the 70's?) along with the SFA main store on 5th. They always had a conservative, edited assortment of Brioni. Their clients looked elegant. But when I saw the brand at other stores 5, 10, 15 years ago, there were odd design touches...
Just a reminder for anyone on this thread that might be in the Bay Area next week, Thursday September 1st, to come on out and join us at Suitsupply SF.
