Anyone who has used Garrison Bespoke/Fifth on King have any pics they could share of the finished project?

I learned alot of new terms- Included lots of other details in hand finished pic stitch on lapel edge, pockets, and this "surgeon cuff" which is another great detail. I'm assuming that's with a full floating...

I understand that those of us who are sartorially educated are in the minority. But that doesn't excuse anyone for perpetuating the notion that a black suit is for everything. Case-in-point: The very first suit I bought was a black suit. Not because I particularly wanted a black suit, but because I was told (by sales staff) that it was the most "basic" and "versatile." They could just have easily told me that a black suit was for funerals and that I'd be better served...
I used to keep an eye on these guys out of curiosity and an initial interest in their products (back before it became perfectly clear that they were full of shit about the canvassing and fabric content of their suits). Just took a look at the website, first time in quite a while... gah! "Every man should start with a black suit. It's the most essential part of the wardrobe." And the jacket length makes Thom Browne stuff look generous.

The quality is quite good, though not perfect and the prices (around $60/shirt) beats what you'd pay in department stores for decent materials. It looks like they'll be in Van in late May and Vic in July. Anyone...
