I have seen it, but never had anything made up. The tailor himself cautioned me that the fabric doesn't take well to regular use.

I have the same odd preference, ragazzo. I'm still kicking myself for letting this PRL jacket go by on eBay. Perfect measurements and everything, and only $100. I've been keeping the picture so that I can have something like it made up someday.

This never happened to me but their service is just great. Which book did they send you?

I'm the one who's definitely jealous.

Interestingly never purchased anything from them, always went for minnis, but their prices are so much better, more than negligible difference
