I wear both. Only about a quarter of my suits and jackets are bespoke. If I had the cash I would never wear a stitch of off-the-rack clothes again. I enjoy all of my wardrobe but, but even my most well-fitting RTW clothes would be superior if they had been hand-made for me...

Coupled with the fact that US legislation was unable to stop it.
Talk about setting your child up for a life of misery and a F***ed up psyche!

My police colleagues gave it to me in the mid-80s, because I was slightly mentally unbalanced back then but moreso because I was an "action (and fast hard action) speaks louder than words" type of cop.
My team was always the first called to deal with violent street incidents.
Luckily the name...
