I always thought they were synonymous. Where do we measure the shoulder compared to yoke? 
^ Yes, Luxire have been very helpful giving me feedback on shirts. As far as I know, no one in my area, or even Norway, offers bespoke shirts.
The way everyone tells me to reduce yoke exemplifies my problem. My first shirt started out at yoke 16.75, I increased to 18.5 on my second shirt and decreased conservatively from there, afraid to overshoot yet again. And now I'm going back to 16.75.   I suspect my expectations are too high, in that my shirts will never look as good as in advertising and some pictures posted here by fellow members, simply because of my body type and posture. I have the same problem with...
I need a reality check. This must be my tenth shirt, but I just can't seem to nail down my measurements. I tweak something, overshoot/undershoot, gradually readjust and end up back where I started. Does this shirt look messy because it is not ironed, or should I be aiming for a better fit? Or maybe it's just my body type and posture? Am I just being obsessive? Planning to decrease chest slightly and fix the wrinkles on the upper arm.  G&R Powder blue oxford: [[SPOILER]]
I think he's referring to the fact that the La Spalla is not a true 3-button jacket, but a 2.5 button jacket: http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/glossary-2.5-button-jacket.html   Live and learn. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Congratulations on your wedding.
Good idea shading the overhang like that. The heel was a nightmare to get right for me. Went through 20-30 sheets. I thought about marking where my feet touch the ground, but then I realised my arches raised, so it's hard to draw. I hope you don't need it @Luxire?
Received the holdall bags from Black Friday this week. At the time, I couldn't decide, so I ordered both. I'm glad I did. I did not ask for anything in particular except for detachable D-rings at the short ends. The results were impressive:   Carefully shipped with Indian newspapers inside so the bag retains its shape.   Matching detachable D-ring strap on the short ends.   First impressions, the wool feels thick and makes the bag feel heavy. I like that....
Why not both? A pair that show where the feet contact the ground and a pair that is perpendicular. Seems like an easy way to provide more information about the shape of the foot.   Edit: Actually, I tried angling the pen, but it doesn't really work for the arch as mine is barely in contact with the ground. But it should provide information about the rest of the foot.
Very curious of this myself. Seems like it would change the size by a fair bit if done one way or the other.
And my axe!   Offer still seems to be available though.
