    Something a fun, given our earlier convo about two button-sleeves: a pair in action!

    (Also, in before someone complains about Jamal's tie knot)

    All is forgiven because he gave us that version of "Poinciana."

    @UrbanComposition

    What do the details look like when you get pants and jacket made separately? Do you need 4M vs. 3.5? How much do you give the pants maker and how much to the jacket maker? Thanks in advance.

    I give 1.75m to Tailors Keep and the remaining 2.25 to the coat maker. Neither has ever said they were short on fabric. I think I gave 2.5m of the gunclub to Palmisciano just to be sure he had enough for pattern matching.

    Now I wish I had looked at AJ's cuffs more closely the last time I saw him play live.

    @WillingToLearn If you're around a 40R this chart - given to me by a tailor - will give you a rough idea of how much fabric you need for most different options

    Thanks for sharing my friend, I'd give my right arm for either of those sportcoats if you're interested in a trade..

    Wouldn't the sports coat then have an extra sleeve?

    I met sig. Arrigo on Saturday and yes, he doesn't speak any English. It was fun trying to chat with him. Have us a nice recommendation for lunch.

    It's similar to the fruit cups you get in LA, but the juice is left in. Refreshing on a hot Sicilian day.

    Yes.
    The classic Messinese granita (crushed ice drink) are coffee and cream,lemmon (with juice of real lemmons),and fragola (strawberry) often with cream.
    Other types are mandorla (almond) and pistachio,
    A real delight is the granita of mulberry,and the granita of peach (In Panarea Island add malvasia wine..a nectar).
    You can eat these granite with a brioche.
    Granita in Catania is a little different; more iced and dense.
