Depends what sort of cognac. Kindly post me a bottle so I may be sure of my advice.
I live with one. He seems to work on styles in volumes proportionate to how people generally dress (ie the suits get less attention than, say, distressed jeans and vintage jackets). However he does dress some clients in the multi thousand-dollar suit range. If you're in the habit of paying this much for suits, then I suppose you can afford to leave taste quality assurance to someone else. I sure wish Donald Trump would follow that advice and stop trying to turn Brionis...
I thought, after recently buying a made-to-measure suit from wetailor, that I would do a write up. No pictures, for the moment, mainly because I'm so embarrassed at the workmanship. I originally bought it here: http://myworld.ebay.com.au/snoozewithme/ - so yes, this is an ebay job. The business is registered in South Australia by Philippe Galliano, and also operates out of http://www.wetailor.com/. Prices suggested cheap construction (ie fully fused), but never the less,...

Glad you're working it out. One point: Don't discount the benefits that not working brings to your children. I'm one of those guys who always seems to get everything he wants in life because he's already laid all the foundations to take all the opportunities. (Sorry for phrasing that so immodestly. I know that I have been very fortunate in life.). At the very bottom of all those foundations lies parental support, particularly a mother who would drive me to music...
Who has one? I'm wondering if I should stitch one up... Pics appreciated!
A little on bonds: 1. You have AUD. The AUD is low against everything right now, so in order not to risk currency exposure, you must spend it on AUD denominated assets. 2. Australia (federally) is purportedly debt free. You cannot buy treasury bonds, generally speaking, in Australia, because none are issued (there are some 30-year bonds still in circulation). 3. Bonds have been largely replaced, of late, with Hybrid stocks - a debt instrument that is listed on the...
This fellow is from the Scabal catalogue.
Just a friendly word to Sydney-siders that the herald is running a readership recruitment drive for their "Executive Style" marketing material, and the carrot is a Zenga MTM suit. If you're interested: http://comps.smh.com.au/f2Competitio...op:oct08:nov08
