^ Exactly. I just posted that because it's the most well-proportioned sports car I've seen in ages, and I was so impressed that it's an Alfa of all makes.
Just make sure you don't sit through the interview on the crooked on the chair edge with a strange expression like that suit model does! Good luck.
For the record I just took out something orangey and food-like from a silk tie with water. Worked fine. Your drink was an apple-tini, not a bloody mary! I don't see what the fuss is about; that will come out easily.

TAYLOR, The "from" section on the mailing box: The postage, paid from Henley Beach, in South Australia, where the business is registered: The guy's signature, on the goods declaration: And, as a bonus, a free lesson in manners! Read carefully now... Let's say someone disagrees with your opinion of a tailor. This is a clothing-oriented forum, so you can expect that to happen a fair bit around here. You don't scream "LIAR!
