They both absolutely loved it.

Now that I and my wife HAVE TO visit the in-laws every year, I HAVE TO go to Seoul every year. Maybe I can catch you then before you leave. Maybe I can get a bespoke from B&Tailors. But we still need to go torch down that JW store that said we weren't VVVVVVVVVVIP enough to drink there.

Squirrels ... motorbikers ... squirrels ... motorbikers ... hmm ... I think I'm all for saving the squirrels.

 

(all figure of speech, of course)

Could y'all point me in the direction of interviews with tailor's that y'all enjoyed reading and let me know why you liked them (or what would have been better)?

Is firmly on the list. Hopefully we'll (wife and I) make it in time for a meet-up.

Let me deal with the Walker Bros. next time. I have my ways. ;)

I like this one because it flows like a great story and I can relate to Mr. Field's description of the scenery in DC. Now I am their customer for life. :slayer:

He asked for a feedback from you, not just a link. ;)

That's why I enjoy JefferyD's blog and why I can get lost for an hour in the Tailor Fit thread every so often, especially since Despos, Rory, and Jeffery seem to be posting regularly.

Anyway, in part, one has to be in the business of bespoke to really have the time and resources to delve that deeply into those issues. I'm just interested but with neither time nor resources.

The point you are raising, however, was nicely presented and quickly seen. I guess the remaining question is whether darts are always put in on orthogonal to the ground. Perhaps not?

Thanks for the link. It would be nice to have a good list of old threads that would bear fruit from careful reading (and darn it, I have to finish my taxes).

Here you go:

(sorry for spamming my blog, but it's kind of a pain copying and pasting all the links into a post on here)

Why do you think the 40 is too big? Judging by the pictures above, it looks much more workable than the 38.

Big? Maybe I just meant my stance looked retarded.
