5'10".

Suddenly, this thread has taken a disturbingly craigslist turn, with hookups planned and measurements shared.

Yay!

You're probably not shorter than me; I'm only 5'4".

Anyway, I don't know what you'd call the head-to-waist ratio, but I'd lose all comparisons. I'm dangerously close to 1:1.

There is no reason for anybody to make a suit that 2% of the population can wear.

I tried TF on earlier this year. It fit fine, but the superfly lapels, the shoulders and the general cut made me look a complete tool. I don't think it's all that hard to fit into but that doesn't guarantee it will look good. Still, I highly recommend trying on some of his more dramatic jackets/suits, just for the sheer amusement value.

Not as amusing as these threads, mind you...

Grayson, over at your forum, will now lead a coup against you for having said such a thing. Watch yer back!

One reason i remain aloof on here is that I suspect a lot of you havent come to grips with your real motives.

How will you penetrate the enveloping cloud of non-reality that is like a protective sphere around him wherever he trods in the city that the natives like to call Frisco?

I will pay you five dollars if you can get a shot of him next to a clump of SF (the city, not the forum) street people.

I'm sure 80%+ of the executive clients @ bespoke tailors do the same and don't read up for years before buying a bespoke suit.

Bro, really. It's not that hard to find a great RTW suit. You just need the right size and model/style. If you can't identify what it is you don't like about Attolini, Brioni, RLPL, etc. You're going to have trouble with bespoke. Shopping for suits isn't suppose to be a pain in the ass. Something tells me, your bespoke experience is going to be worse than shopping for RTW. You will be investing much more time and expense than you think. And you will be inundating this forum with more threads, as fun as they are.

Ed and PG are great examples of guys who look great in their RTW clothing. You should not have more difficulty.

Natives will get into fights if you call it "Frisco." The rest of your post, I did not understand.

I'm 5'5" on good days. 5'4.5" on bad ones. When I played high school basketball, I made the coach list me as 5'8". I couldn't bare the ridicule from opposing fans.

They let you play basketball in high school at 5'5"? Either you had kickass talent, or you went to a school like mine, entirely populated by Asians and Jews. Best varsity golf team in the state.
