thanks, omar.

i am kind of hesitant to do so because that is not really the intent of the thread, but since my pics are so close up, i think maybe it helps a bit to post the full fit. idrk.

I try to meet each client at the point they are at and figure out what they want to accomplish. Better fit, styling, comfort, all of the above.

How many customers would it take to extend your services to the Washington, DC area?

Steeches, how is it that a guy with the good sense to wear that can also wear glen plaid on glen plaid with glen plaid socks?

At any rate, nice job.

If you visit Chicago, Dallas or New York, it's easier than you might think.

Chris, how would one arrange a meeting in New York?

Send a PM and I will contact you when I schedule NY visits. Sometimes I do day trips and sometimes I stay over. Most visits are during the week and occasional trips will have a Saturday option. Depends on who and how many clients are scheduled. I use a hotel for fittings or meet at a vendor's showroom which I like to do so you can choose from their entire range of books and I don't have to carry many sample books. Which vendor I use depends on what cloth you want to use.

Have another client in Baltimore who takes the train to NY for fittings.

It's not about how many clients, it's about time and work capacity. Our backlog has been averaging 6 months and it is hard to travel more than I do. Going to Dallas is easy as I have a workroom and tailors there.
Have a limited amount of infrastructure in New York to work from. Access to hotel and vendor's showrooms to use and tailor friends where I can use their workroom for things I may have to do. Makes out of town trips easier.
Have several DC lawyers as clients but they travel to Chicago or Dallas to meet.

not only is this easy, and affordable (free if you a decent CC points program), its also a lot of fun to take nyc day trips. when i get on the despos action, thats how i would do it.

I wouldn't say its fun but it is easy. However, I just started a new job and can't justify taking leave for some clothes right now. I will have some clothes made by Mr. Despos in due time.


Now please post some more pictures!

Love this combination stitches.  Houndstooth wedding tie, white spread collar shirt, grey flannel suit, black captoe oxfords -- all very elegant choices.

I just bought the same tie on sale yesterday! Consider wearing it with a regular worsted suit instead of a flannel. I have a similar RLPL houndstooth in cashmere from a few seasons ago that I think would go better with the flannel.

Gents--

My new year's resolution (well, one of them anyways) is to hone my wardrobe to a more inspired edge.

From what/ where do you guys draw your inspiration for your next purchase, looks, etc?

I really liked these two websites (curious who makes suits for Matteo Marzotto......whoooweee, it really is all about the shoulders when it comes to suits!). Sartorialist is dead to me, haven't seen anything worthwhile from his site in a long time.

http://forthediscerningfew.com/2012/03/31/inspiration-de-la-semaine-matteo-marzotto/

not a huge fan of the shoulders or suspenders on their stuff, but man-- can these guys put jackets and ties together to the next level! 90 pages of cool shit.
