Hopefully it'll turn out ok, however, after reading your post, I'm somewhat more inclined to try out ModernTailor.com The biggest drawback of online tailors is the lack of access for alterations, etc. If you in SoCal, you can go to their location any time and be remeasured, arrange...

In summer months I wear chambray and linen shirts very often. I don't wear full...
I've been thinking about an MTM pinstripe for several months. You and I are appear to be the same size and similar taste. I want something conservative and subtle. Are you thinking navy or charcoal?
No, seriously. Noel Coward? Uh, Private Lives? Design for Living? Am I getting warmer? How about a clue? Three words... first word, two syllables ... sounds like moo. No, sounds like foo! Blithe Spirit? I don't know what that's about. Actually, I don't know any of these plays. I barely know Noel Coward -- I was an engineering major in college. Well, now that I've got this off my chest, I guess I don't really care. Good luck with that poll.

Quote: Originally Posted by Kempy Hi Coburn, I've been contemplating ordering a shirt and I know you mentioned in a different post your desire for less tie space. I am curious which collar you requested for your shirt? On the website all the collars seem to have very little, if any, tie space. Personally I was looking at the classic spread or English wide spread. First shirt will definitely be self measured (due to no tailors being in the Seattle area...

This is an MTM from Mytailor. I've placed three orders -- each arrived in 5 weeks. I would vigorously recommend being measured by a traveling tailor. On another thread, several people stated they actually sent some of their better fitting shirts to Mytailor in California along with the measurements. I'd suggest going further and send the shirts, measurements and pictures of you wearing the shirts.

Thank you all. This helps a lot. I just realized I've been taking pictures for weeks with the lens zoomed out to the max. I'll try to zoom in a bit. Now, about cameras, what would you recommend if I stepped up from a pocket camera? I take pictures indoors and outdoors but rarely do 'action' shots. We don't get much sunshine in Seattle during the winter. I cannot seem to get enough light for the WAYWT pictures. The flash seems to wash out a lot of the details...
