For those who have not been before, the Elks Lodge is on the third floor of the Kensington Park Hotel. When you get off the elevator you will need to ring the doorbell and someone will buzz you in. I will sign you in as my guests. Roger, we are starting a little later than usual because I have to be in Palo Alto that afternoon and I want to make sure that I can be at the Lodge before you guys start arriving.

I'm in for the 22nd.
I'm in. I put myself on a budget for the year and I've already spent about 85% of it. I will probably be in Hong Kong in the fall and I really want to have some money to spend there. So definitely no purchases this month!
I'm in. Tadich Grill would be another dinner possibility.

I am not sure exactly what the correct name for the construction would be, but when I was there the tailor opened up a basted coat to show me how it was made (I was told I was the first customer to ever ask about this): there is a free-floating canvas that extends the entire length of the front, but also a thin layer of fusing. I do not know if they are able or willing to do construction without the fusing.
And I would wear it if it was not too short or too slim. The pattern is fine, but to really tell if it would look right for you we would need to be able to see the whole lapel, silhouette, button stance, and so on, and we can't see any of that from your pictures.

It seemed a little flaky to me- surely they should be able to come up with a shirt that fits well without relying on taking measurements on a pre-existing...
