I assume you are posting here because you did not settle for the MTM services smile.gif

Correct. I'll post a bunch of pics and some words in the thread a started last year.

Wouldn't really be settling though....I was with Mr. 6 yesterday and the MTM stuff he has from them is great.

I know - I meant to be glib smile.gif.

I think the MTM stuff is great, and it certainly makes sense, especially for one trying to build his wardrobe. However, you are pleased with your Formosa RTW stuff - which is around $1,500 - $2,000 - your Eidos RTW / MTM stuff - which is around $1,000 - $1,500 - and your Ring Jacket MTM stuff - which is, again, around $1,500 - $2,000. In my mind, Steed MTM does not make much sense considering that you have significant brands in the RTW/MTM/MTO categories that you can pull from.

I am very excited to see what Steed can do for you. Look forward to reading your thoughts.

I like the cloth selection. Which buttons did you decide on?

Pretty sure the ones over 7 1/2. Considering something darker though...

Cool. Haven't seen anything made up in WB Phoenix yet. Several nice swatches in there.

Thanks. There were some really good ones. I had never looked through the book before yesterday.

Had not noticed the book. I have leafed through it a few times, I liked a lot of the swatches. I thought the book was, overall, very bright and saturated. I liked it.
