How has the quality @ JAB been since their acquisition by MW? I have a wedding coming up and some nephews need some inexpensive suits. They are tall but so young and likely to continue growing so we don't want to spend a bunch of $. $200 for a suit they can have for even a year or two would be good.
Love Chanel Egoiste.     I've used it for ~ 5 years now. Hard to find now and they have made a "platinum" version I am not a fan of.  Original is is a very conservative masculine fragrance composed of spice, wood and vanilla notes. The top notes, intensive and fresh, include rosewood and coriander. Later on, the fragrance character becomes warmer and mysterious due to Bulgarian rose, carnation and warm cinnamon in its heart.

Heading to the Met in a couple weeks for a premiere. Don't own/want to rent a tux nor would i feel comfortable wearing one.   My choices are charcoal grey pinstripe or navy suit.

Worked like gangbusters on some 2 year old ring-around-the collar and cuff stains.
Can anyone tell me if the hanger hooks on the shirt hangers go all the way through the wood and are secured with a washer/nut, or is the base of the hook embedded in the wood via a few threads? Thank you!

Thanks for the post.   I went bespoke for my wedding suit (T-14 days) and I agree, Ercole is fantastic to work with. The communication can be spotty but the work is great.

I would say to share pics of the suit if you have 'em. I'll prolly be headed back in spring for a jacket.Congratulations!
