rlschwart. Excellent seller, speedy shipping, and very patient with my barrage of questions.

I may check them out. I'm always a bit worried as a tailors understanding of fit and style will almost certainly be in direct conflict with what I need to have tailored. To wit, the suit I'm eagerly awaiting is my second Thom Browne. My last tailor did an okay job with my last Thom suit , and a mediocre job on my Black Fleece sport coat (to his credit, it was bought last year and I've lost a size in that time, so bringing a jacket down a size isn't profoundly easy).
