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.

I don't have much experience with cameras so I'm hoping someone on the forum can help Can someone suggest a remedy for the lens distortion I get from my camera? I'm using a Canon Powershot SD1100 Pocket Camera. I think you can see the distortion in the vertical lines in this picture. Do all pocket cameras do this? Do I need a bigger camera?
Just sent PM
