I don't know why, but I just love seeing a good old fashioned tailoring experiences in films. The ones I can think of are The Thomas Crown Affair, The Tailor of Panama (duh), Wall Street 2, one of the Hornblower episodes/films, That scene in Ladies in Lavender (even if it's not bespoke, I quite liked it), as well as an episode of Poirot. Oh and also, The Avengers. Anyone else have any other films to recommend me in which the protagonist has an enjoyable tailoring...

Does anyone know when they will have their next one? Found some stuff I really like, but as allways money is a restraint, so going to try and catch the sale.

In response to the OP, the first picture looked like just creasing,but the second one is obviously cracking. You said you emailed the first picture to EG, have they seen the second one? If I were you I'd make sure I sent them the second one, so there is no doubt that it is...

Unless your familiarity with G&H is from the 70s, your numbers are absurd. They start MTM around 1000, and this is not the full MTM...
I'm a fan of creed fragrances, but being non-synthetic I find it's necessary to try them on the skin a few times before deciding, as they sometimes smell good on paper and on skin right away, but then later turn sour because of bad clashes with your personal body chemistry. At any rate, BeautyEncounter.com, previously perfumebay.com, sell samples, and at $1.99 per 0.05 ounces the samples actually aren't much more expensive than the actual fragrance, so you can buy all...
I'm not sure if they ALL appeared together, but in old threads I've seen mention of a book with quite a few of them. I think it was called men in style or something like that, and had about 150 of them. Not sure if that is a book that's readily available these days though.
Good evening, gents I'm looking for more old-school drawings like this. If you have some more please post, would also appreciate it if anyone could direct me towards any online sources where more can be found. Thank you in advance. Silverfox
I watched the movie the first time for the sake of the movie, but I will readily admit the reason I downloaded it after seeing it in the cinema was because of those braces. Also love the steel-tips on Eames' shoes in the same scene as the one with the braces, and also the fact that the one englishman in the film (eames) is wearing red socks.(you see this in the mombassa scenes) The braces at turnbull are indeed from thurston... The big difference though is that classic...

The Swedish implementation of socialism has worked for 60 years, and by at least...
