That's a cool comparison - the end of the Mina shoulder does look a little funky but not obnoxiously so. Hard to argue with the LH shoulder....
I think we should put the Libya and Egypt issue to the side for another thread. My initial point stands - the USA isn't Israel for a lot of different reasons with regards to national defense. Israel has more experience and is better prepared for multiple-coordinated terrorist attacks than the USA. With the Boston situation as a backdrop I worry that something of a larger scale would cause far more destruction and disruption than people think... And to a certain extent,...
I guess what I'm saying is that if its not an option for you (and you don't view tailoring as high stakes gambling) you shouldn't do it. Or at least you should manage your expectations accordingly.
I think you can make a strong case that absent the fall of Saddam Libya and Egypt would be status quo.
Some of the local alterations aside I tend to agree with what marco is saying - as a general rule if you are going to partake in bespoke you need to be fully committed. For me that has meant trips to Europe for fittings and, at least initially, patience. It is obvious that NsM is popular for a reason - it makes (to a degree) inaccessible goods accessible. It is not without its limitations, however, and from the pics I've seen on this thread, along with the stories from...
Interesting. Do you feel that way because you believe you lack "local" options that could fit the bill?Clothing for a long time for me was a way to enhance my travels. I guess like everything else you eventually settle on a few places that you really like and you go back and back again. Historical relevance (pedigree) always mattered to me - probably about as much as fit and feel. My theory was places like Charvet or Rubinacci would be out of business if they didn't...
I think that's quite an assumption. Israelis have been living in a "war" like situation going back to the establishment of the state. Prior to that they were almost eradicated from the Earth. Jews views about self-defense and self-preservation, therefore, are a tad different than ours. Things like mandatory military service, 10 foot barriers and road blocks would be very hard for most of our republic to swallow. I don't need to remind you that we spent over a trillion and...
What are your impressions of the fabric Choy?
I'm tired..... of this thread
My A&S jackets do that as well.
