That's one book that no one has ordered from in my shop. Topcoat weight for suiting, the weight is problematic for normal wear
This incident preceded the internet.

In the process you have to learn what your fitting issues are. If you don't know what your fitting issues you won't appreciate the benefit of custom...
Looked up the definition. That's a good word to know Did not work there.

Wore a knit tie made by Gallo the other day and have to say it makes the best knot of the few knits I have from other brands, being Paul Stuart and Venanzi. The Venanzi is a lighter weight and lacks  body compared to the Paul Stuart tie   The Gallo fabric has a unique hand, different than the others. I like Gallo best.
