[[SPOILER]] @New Shoes1 what cloth are your Trousers? I had to retire a pair of flannels this year, and that is the color I want to replace them with. Thanks, DL-
@luxire did you stop carrying the Hunt & Winterbotham line? If I recall correctly you did have it at one point.   Thanks,   DL-
Poorsod,   Good to know, I am actually outside of the city so being able to stop and have something looked at/adjusted real time could be great.    Booth,   Thank you for the info I will keep that in mind.

The combination of price, quality...
