Viet Thai is quite good.
Great documentary on JLSJ.
Anyone with experience with Harrington Brass or Waterworks Bath fixtures? Are the worth the $$$?
If you are using a relatively expensive tailor, Tip Top is best if you know what you are doing (eg Manton). If you are making up something relatively cheap, Tip Top is a reasonable option. It is kind of a hassle to get to.
Lighter than navy dupioni, single width - supposedly by Loro Piana.

No fittings are quite suboptimal. I've tried it with Chan and went back to doing fittings. Different cloths perform differently, some may stretch more and others may shrink more. For example, some tailors like to add extra length for linen trousers to compensate for the shortening secondary to the wrinkles. To do that sight unseen is kinda tricky.
He's printed pictures of my friends but I've never made it. Closest I came was when I was escorting a friend down the stairs. Her picture was printed but I was cropped out (only my elbow was included).
