I'm told that they wear a lot of black suits in Japan in a business environment.
I'd never wear it with a suit. But I think wearing it with jeans and a sports coat is kinda nice.

With the weak pound recently, that's what one would pay for a two-piece suit by Thomas Mahon.

It's just that I think having a woman measure my inseams might be a little awkward. A little bit like having a female doctor check you for testicular cancer...

At any rate, "The Cad and the Dandy" is catchy enough a name...
I don't see why a male tailor would necessarily be more competent than a female tailor. But at the same time, I'm not sure I feel comfortable having a woman measure me for a suit, especially with all the groping and grabbing involved. But then, some people may like that....
