I'm in the two overcoat camp. All I need is a camelhair polo coat and a navy chesterfield. Currently have zero so need to get to work on those purchases. Prefer to purchase them rather than get made but don't know if that is an option. Edit: Speaking of which, I guess I should start thinking about this because if my only option is to get them made I need to start that soon. Currently have zero coats. I am thinking about getting the polo coat this winter and...

I don't really associate ties and scarves colors to the school somebody attended. They are just colors to me.

You don't need no stinkin' tailor nor any $40 Chevy Chase cleaning job. Your really only worry is shrinkage and only God...
Title says it all.
anybody know how long it takes to receive samples in the mail? And if they are sent USPS or UPS?

Foo is right, I asked for a very soft shoulder and specifically used the word "neopolitan". I guess I wasn't vocal enough, so next time I'll be even more clear. My main complaint with my shoulders is that they arent symmetrical- my right shoulder has a bit of a...

I wouldn't have pegged him over 35 years old, but clearly he must be. It's comforting to know Patrick has such dedication to tailoring and to Chan itself. Patrick might have started fairly young. I met with Ascot Chang the other day and found out Nelson...

The third they felt confident producing only if they could have at least three fittings with me, which would be quite time consuming given that the firm only...
