Hi all -
I'm Tyler from Seattle (male, 30, single). Just joined the forum, and have been reading information as I go along. I spent much of my youth collecting fashion labels that I later came to find out were mostly made in China, and only sometimes from quality materials. I love over-constructed (I'm almost sure that's not a word) stuff made to outlast me, especially clothing and accessories, that bring high value for the money. I try to balance spending what I feel is a reasonable amount of money for the absolute highest quality (materials, construction, etc) that I can find. I'm a bit obsessive about researching the best.
At the moment, I am working to have a tailor make a custom-fitted suit (not so much bespoke, but darn close) for me. I got tired of trying things on and having them be expensive for what is invariably the label and poor construction - I figured I could have a custom-fitted suite made for not much more. We'll see what happens.
