I remember thinking at the time how aesthetically pleasing all the ratios were, though. The jacket quarters, the shirt, the tie, the lapels.... Now they look so off. Someday, thats how today's ticket pocket/dual vent/flat front will look. *sigh*

Check "Blank Label". I bought a few well made shirts of theirs a few weeks back.

True story: I was reading on my BB and could not see avatars. I got to here, and said "gotta be DM7." HFS, dude.

Yes. You could move them here.
Next question?

+1. Lighting/whitebalance are my nemeses.

Oh yeah, while exchanging the fake True Religions for a bike, I also grabbed a pink Gitman. Pearly buttons, twill weave, tagged 15/33, but measures closer to 15.5.

Note to self...pick up feather suede licensed crap to ebay.

I know this is an old quote, but somebody remind me - do we only pick up feather suede to flip or do we wear it? I saw a couple today but left them. I don't want to flip, only pick up for me (one was my size). Are there use and handling guidelines for these?

Stopped by another store.  Picked up 6 NWOT HF-Hickey Freeman Suits.  Loro Piana Super 130's, all different solids.  Custom made for some dude in '08 who never got around to wearing them.

Tell me that this dude would have worn a 40R if he couldn't afford MTM.

Please?

Of late, ever since his funeral really, he's shrunk just a bit. The suits are just too large for the guy now.
