3 automatics, 2 6 speeds and one 6 speed Sequential Manual. Both of my 6 speeds are drivers or track day cars so the tranny is very appropriate, but my daily driver is my M3 and the SMG allows me to let the computer direct the clutch and gear changing efforts while I drink my coffee or work the phone; however when I want to move down the road smartly I can use it as a paddle shifter manual.

I have not had a serious camera in my hands (brace of Leica IIIfs with TriX and separate single focal length lenses per body issued to me by Uncle Sugar) for near 40 years, and do enjoy the modern bells and whistles, but clearly remember setting the bodies at 1/125 and f11 and focusing each on infinity and being able to get away with 90+% of my shots technically adequate for publication. Being aware of your intent and your surroundings was important those days. Not any...
I, for one, absolutely love it. However my primary visual look has been the new Automobile Magazine and the pictures in there make it look sensuous. Perry

using the img code from your photo site results in this: Great garments. You simply need to form a relationship with a good tailor. Very few of us can find a perfect OTR fit. If the shoulders work and they appear to than the tailor can make them right. Perry

I can't tell you what my commercial launderer uses in terms of water temp but one characteristic of all my My Tailor orders is that they seem huge when received but fit exactly as I want after 3 commercial washings and seem to hold that size for some time. Perry
My only Bontoni's are sourced from Wilkes Bashford and they seemed to be sized in very typical US sizing. I am a US 9D and that is what was on the Bontoni box. For reference I wear an 8.5 E UK size in C&J, EG and JL. I suppose I find them a bit on the generous size a la JL rather than the tighter fit of the 337 and 348 C&J. Perry
