I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my attitude or choice of brand.

I have seen your posts recently and I suggest that you... stop.

tailors were trained to take measurements in one way.
the online MTM companies ask for different measurements.

I used to make suits when i first went into business
i was once asked to help fill out a thick as thieves measurement chart.
I was very confused!

I won't measure for these situations because it doesn't work. Measurements are trivial unless you know the DNA of the pattern and cutting system. Trial & error for sure.

Thanks for that constructive feedback. I always love it when people specifically tell me if I am doing something offensive or bothersome and, when necessary, specifically tell me what I can do to improve upon that behavior. smile.gif No hard feelings, I hope?

I believe their collective sentiment is that all men should wear suits

I posit that not all men should. This thread shows why

Come on, now. If you think I wasn't making sense, just say so. I must admit it doesn't approach my usual quality of writing, but I suppose that's to be expected when I allow myself to rant a bit.

Actually, it is more of a mental block on my part. The old Police song just kicked in and won't stop playing. shog[1].gif

Chas, thank you for reminding me why I'd never use online MTM.

Why is that, exactly?
