She used to make some RTW. Fabrics may be same or similar but the shirt is not the same as her bespoke. She makes a trial shirt (forget what that's called) and then plays with it to get collar right, darts (she uses them) and taper (quite a bit). I don't see how that can be done without an in-person visit 350 euros was pushing it; I'm not a buyer any longer if the price escalted to 460 (unless of course dollar-euro makes a dramatic change).
I would suggest looking beyond the BTU number. Most of the high end models will have more than sufficient BTUs. I'd look to things like are all the burners full range (high-to-low) or not, how easy to clean, if using a grill which makes most sense for your intended use. I also think it's essential to go to a store where you can actually look at them in person and hopefully play with them. Some people make a distinction between a cooktop and a rangetop. Sounds...
80% lean, lots of pepper, salt and then add olive oil and work through in an attempt to coat the fibriles. The oil is the trick (Schlow burger -- chef from Radius in Boston). Don't overwork the burger formation then fried onions -- slice thin and cook in fair amount of oil until golden -- then let drain and they'll crisp up nicely mayo with horseradish and some lemon juice and the best cheddar-type cheese you can find. good rolls
anyone know when the next Louis sale is?
I would strongly recommend desert wines. A decent bar -- eg good restaraunt or hotel -- will have a decent selection. Like many women, she might like her drinks sweeter and less acoholic. I am a big fan of desert wines, personally, but not a fan of them for cocktails -- but if someone (e.g. my wife) digs them, more power to them depending where you go, consider sauternes, vin santos, ice wines
I've seen it mentioned that the Belgian designers like Dries van Noten are an expression of deconstructionism. While I don't know enough about Dries clothing to form an opinion on that particular designer I have seen clothing design elements which I think can fairly be characterized that way, e.g., exposed seams , asymmetry etc. Likewise, some designers seem more proletariat. I'd be interested to know what other philosophies and thought processes underpin the various...

i was told Finamore at one point. I bought it, and have been unimpressed. sleeves almost certainly set by machine based on looking at seams
white marble looks great but can stain especially with red wine. Those stains IMO are not charming because they are likely to be the rings/circles from bottles and glasses left on it overnight after a party if you feel comfortable enough to be on guard for that, they look great There are a ton of granite option so if you like stone (I do) you ought to be able to find something also there are a lot of nice wood options from very functional (e.g., end grain butcher...
Looks great. I can vouch for the Louis cut. I have a very similar jacket to the first one and it is extremely light and soft to wear, and has a slimmer fit than most other Belvest.
