    Love the clean, modern design of the shop. Nailed it.

    It's cool that you'll be able to see a tailor when you stop by.

    That was the one slight disappointment I had when visiting - that the cutter wasn't able to be there for the fitting.

    No. She takes the measurements, adjusts the coat/shirts during the fitting, take your pick, but no, she doesn't cut the pattern.

    Nope. She is similar to the Rubi's - not a trained cutter, but someone who is well equipped to conduct fittings and has a good stylistic eye.

    My NSM DB's look quite similar to medtech's. I like them a lot. They do look quite different from the Savile Row DBs so it depends on your taste.

    I pulled this off Wills blog A Suitable Wardrobe. This is a cream linen jacket he had made by NSM. It has a similar cut to MedTech. I think it looks very good myself. Especially in cream linen.

    I like that style on Will more.

    As a convert to teh Drape, I'd like a fit guy like Medtech to have more fullness in the chest of his jacket.

    A not-so-fit guy is better off with a cleaner look IMO.

    Will's DB looks so different from mine that I'm surprised that it is also from NSM.

    Here's my DB from NSM, which I think is different from both Will and Medtech's.

    Nice jacket, ET! May I ask you for more photographs of it?
    This is the first 4x2 DB jacket from NSM that I've seen, so I'm very interested in the silhouette.

    I saw some good looking linen in a drapers book. It had a good medium blue.
