It's a grey area to be sure. Even the person who measures you and sends those measurements off overseas to the actual makers (and does nothing else in the process) calls themselves a tailor. I don't agree with that. To me, the true tailor is the cutter (who is the pattern drafter, along with the coat and trouser maker if they're not also the cutter), and a true bespoke tailor is the cutter who also measures you. But now everyone calls themselves whatever they like...
It's a balmoral in the US, an oxford elsewhere if I understand correctly.
Thank you. I'm only a recent convert to coffee, believe it or not. Been a tea drinker my whole life (and still am). But my wife bought me one of those coffee capsule machines (it makes tea and hot chocolate as well), and I'm now hooked on my morning cup of java.
A lovely coffee with a couple of good friends (forgive the crappy cell phone shot):
^ Nice to see you back here, my friend. Been wondering if you'd melted in the English heatwave I've read about. Great combo (you too, Crusty), as always.
Superb piece there. Congrats on the pickup, way to go!
As others have said, let's get back to talking about G&G here.
