He use to do the buttons by hand but he bought a machine which, after I watched him do one, I can't blame anyone for not wanting to do that.

The first suit I had made was from another tailor here in town who was/is highly thought of yet it was screwed it up beyond words. It was to be bespoke but it was shipped to Montreal(I bought the fabric from Ed on the forum here) for completion. I called asking when I was to come in for a fitting, he put me off a few times and then it was finished without my ever trying it on. LC had me bring it to the guy who is making this one and he saved it as best as could be done. I have it and it "fits" but I don't wear it because it's not a good fit. The fabric was an amazing grey wool cashmere blend with a subtle light burnt orange windowpane, makes me want to cry or rage thinking about it.

It's a stunning deal if I have my own fabric, around $600 for a coat and $1K for a suit. This stuff is a light grey cashmere herringbone made for Drapers that I got when we went to LA last month which I think I'm into for about $250 for three yards. With luck there should be enough left over to attempt at making a tie or failing at it happy.gif

I don't go to the main forum nowadays, so do let us know once this is done.

Lol at peasants carrying cash. Enjoy your coke residue and genital warts.

Seriously. I don't know why anyone would want to carry that kind of cash around.

Staffer told me last night that they're rotating me and my senior analyst off of our current project, which is getting extended another 4-5 months.

HOORAY!

In all honestly, I only carry thousands when I am visiting my tailor. My father, he is another story.

Are debit cards not a thing in the states? If I've got $40 in my wallet it's a odd day, no one uses cash here anymore save for the deli or other cash type lunch box but that's more of a skim deal I believe.

I never carry cash. Everything gets charged to my CC and paid off in full automatically each month.

Builds credit, I get cashback, and it's convenient. People who use cash for all their transactions today are living in the Stone Age.

99% of the time i use either a debit or credit card. i rarely carry cash, and if i receive any large sum of cash, it goes to the bank.

They are, this is just Neo projecting his fantasy to the group. Cash is for tipping and strip clubs. There's no other reason to carry it anymore.

A lot of places in nyc don't take cards. Those who do I find it irritating having to wait for assholes who buy a bottle of water and have to sign their receipt and such. Also, there are many places, not mentioning names that don't charge tax if you pay cash. Cash is king.

Out come the "haters" aka 30 year olds catching feels because they can't stand to see what real wealth looks like

What could you actually do if I decided I wanted to buy your girlfriend that Celine bag or Louboutins she's been wanting, you can't make enough money to afford it. All you could really do is just submit and accept your place 4 categories below me on the food chain.

Well, the solution to your lady wanting expensive things is simple. Don't date women that are higher maintenance than yourself.

Here in the old world, we have credit/debit cards with RFID tags in them, which you can swipe on card readers for low value purchases (I think it's anything lower than £20), without having to enter your pin or sign. Great for sandwiches etc, and actually quicker than cash (no counting out coins or waiting for change).

This is true--I definitely carry way more cash in New York than I have anywhere else. But even so, that's still, what, $200? People flashing around stacks of hundos are just silly.
