Carl 1; shibboleths, 0.
Carl is real gem. Buy some shirts!
At that price point, I would do SR or Despos in Chicago. A few hundred bucks for a flight to Chicago sounds perfectly manageable for your budget, so I'd probably go with Despos. You can see him more easily.
Would you like to take pre-orders???
Inis Meain cardi arrived today. Should have ordered two! Thanks, Greg!
Nice one, Crusty. That's a beautiful suit.
As a veteran of orthopedic surgeries, I can only echo what's been said here. You'll have to wait and see how the repair turns out. In my experience, double or triple whatever recovery estimate the surgeon gives you, then add six months for letting your body adapt overall to your new situation. I don't think the doctors lie, but they do minimize, and most of them have not been through the surgeries they perform.
More what, exactly?
I recommend MTM with a very experienced fitter/tailor for suits and trousers. For shirts, find a reasonably priced shirtmaker whose shop you can actually visit, or use a traveling shirtmaker like Ascot Chang. All of the online tailors and shirtmakers are hit or miss--or at least you'll have a lot of misses before you have a hit. If you have the money, do visit Chris Despos. His work is beautiful.
I'm very sorry to hear the sad news, NOBD.
