I would definitely be interested - BUT don't hold your breath. I helped set up 3 Group MTOs for unique Alden makeups through Epaulet and we are still waiting going on 3 years.But more power to you if you can get it done.

Not to derail the thread, but several members mentioned phone orders at the John Lobb factory store. Anyone willing to share their protocol, phone number, and pricing? Thanks in advance - have you been pretty successful in specifying models? Is there someone to email? Much appreciated.
Dino and Frilly should get emeritus status even if they somehow get upset in the contest.
And it goes without saying, this is a brilliant idea. I am in.
I assume the pricing buckets will be based on retail? Discounts are too variable to be helpful guideposts, I would think.
