Lapels on a robe run the full length to the bottom hem and are sewn on. The entire facing is quilted - it is on the inside at the bottom and rolls to the outside as the facing shows (it is shawl lapel, obviously). On mine, they are black satin and the body of the robe is a paisley jacquard. The canvassing is pretty light. Enough to give a drop of body but no stiffness at all.
I had a cotton won from Dege that I wore out. That was unlined. I currently use a silk one that is lined (in silk), but it is the full monty with quilted lapels, knotted and fringed belt, etc. Unlike the fabled ones of yore, this one uses a fused chest piece rather than a hand padded one with the benefit of feeling more like a robe than tailored coat. I got it at Brooks several years ago and it is made in England. I don't know if they still carry it, but if they do,...
Yes. But I also used a trainer once a week that was nearby. Trainer moved.
I am sure a longer taper is better, but I don;t plan that far in advance so just reduce each day over three or four days.
I've walked by often. Rarely seen anyone inside, but my gym moved so I am less likely to pass it now. Like you, I am very curious to hear if anyone has used him. Knowing nothing for sure, I am guessing it is a made-elsewhere type tailor shop. Perhaps using one of the LIC/Brooklyn operations.
Try reducing consumption (including having decaf instead of regular) a few days before. It isn't very hard, but you have to do it. My wife doesn't and the withdrawal headaches are to the point of nausea.I usually have, between espresso and coffee, four cups a day. So by swapping decaf I go from 4-0 to 3-1 to 2-2 to 1- 3 to 4-0.Or you can use a caffeine suppository (yes there is a such a thing). This is why it exists. You are welcome.
Coffee addiction is pretty powerful in its effects (the withdrawal symptoms), but easy to break. I do a four-day taper down to zero every year.
I'm expecting company
I've heard him. He's pretty good, but the best part is, as you noted, the way it takes you a while to realize it is an act and he is not (exclusively) a raving loon.I also like his parting line.
Did he tell lots of fat jokes about his wife?
