But I believe she wasn't going to SF at that time, only NYC. Quite unfortunate for PSG.

ask them
to balance the upper
with the lower
so you don;t end up
with a too slim body
and tighter skirt

Hm, I was actually making my request because I have a small upper chest and narrow shoulders, and somewhat normal sized hips. I was hoping a fuller chest and extended shoulder line would help correct that. The first jacket they made for me is very nice, and it has a tight skirt, but I think the shoulder line could be extended a bit to make the cut a bit more masculine. Thoughts?

just try to avoid
giving the impression
of an inverted triangle
or having a fuller chest
and slightly extended shoulder
with a columnar body

maybe give a bit more
ease at the waist and hip
to avoid this

i have not seen
your previous coat
so cannot comment
on it

But they will do CMT, so the London Lounge linens will soon be in the queue!

To be honest, I don't know how such dense heavy irish linen will work in the summer, italian linen does tend to work better in my experience, even though it wrinkles rather than rumples, but thats linen

I don't remember the source book it came from, but NSM did a linen casual shirt for me in a lilac/purple houndstooth that was great for summer. I so remember that it was Italian linen.

The LL shirt fabrics are not at all heavy or dense. They are, however, much more civilized than the linens that NsM normally offers for shirts. I think once I'm sure that my pattern has been nailed down I'll be trying a few of each range for summer.

I was referring to the suiting

Any members in Manhattan who can recommend a good cleaner to handle NSM garments (preferably downtown)? Just took delivery of my first suit and MIna's care instructions seem a little beyond the capabilities of my local laundry.

Rave Fabricare? It's by mail, but I wouldn't trust any of the cleaner's I've been to in New York. Likely to press the lapels flat or some such nonsense.

Hallak does pick-up and delivery, but they are expensive. I have always been happy with them, and the notion of shipping your garments to AZ to be cleaned / pressed is frankly a bit too precious for me.

 

Chris French is decent as well, but Hallak is the best I've found. Madame Paulette gets mixed reviews, but the bridal crowd Raves (pun intended) about them.

Meurice seems pretty good value for money, but not downtown.
