You can correct for the slope of a particular shoulder by adjusting the angle of the jacket's shoulder seam. This will make the jacket "fit" the shoulder in question. However, if one shoulder is higher than the other and you want to even them out, there is no choice but to build up the lower one.
I'd like to try Hakkasan. The New York Times review was stupid, as it fixated on pricing (who would ever want to spend good money on Chinese food, after all?) and displayed blatant ignorance ("small eats" is a direct translation from the Chinese phrase, not some awkwardly made-up terminology).However, I do cringe at the notion of adding caviar to Peking duck. Competently prepared, the dish does not require more saltiness and the flavors are so robust as is that I fail to...
I don't understand the thumbs up system. Do you just give thumbs up when you see certain screen names?

I definitely have a noticeable drop-off from my clavicles to my shoulder points, though my shoulders are more or less even from left to right. There was no correction for that, as you can clearly see the drop-offs in all my jackets and it would be an easy fix.

Don't you mean Genarro was lecturing Mariano as if the latter is a deep-pocketed village idiot? People in the know have told me that's how things actually go down.
Yeah, dude. NYC Chinese food totally blows. That goes for the much vaunted Flushing as well. Good Chinese chefs follow Chinese families with the most money to spend on Chinese food. Generally, Chinese American families seek to stay out of the city. The poor ones associate it with Chinatown and view the suburbs as a socioeconomic step-up. The rich ones were never in the city to begin with.The exceptions are the more fashionable, inventive Chinese restaurants, which I have a...
Those are clearly pants, not pents.
The best Chinese food is found in upper middle class suburbs. There is probably an ideal McMansion per capita ratio to predict which restaurant will have the best Peking duck. I haven't figured out the precise figure, but let's just say it is high.
