    It is Harrison's 16.5/17oz or something or another. Very heavy. Forex was placing an order from Huddersfield so I placed mine with his. No real reason for getting it myself other than tagging on his order.

    I'll never root against a hometown team...Islanders playing in our backyard now, my kids will actually have a team they can grow up with...easy choice, especially considering how the Garden treats its longtime season ticket holders.

    Do you think Frank has time/knows how to make 1300 posts on an internet forum? Isn't that what Jeremy was hired for?

    Seriously though, that kid has made his operation so much more efficient...solid hire.

    I think there is still room for improvement but maybe that is just me. Still miles better than waiting for tours by the European tailors.

    It seems more trouble than it is worth to try to source fabrics that Frank can get himself.

    Still a lot of room for improvement, agreed.


    Yeah, you're right, but the opportunity came where I didn't have to do anything so I took it, but I also like knowing exactly what I am paying for in fabric.

    Knicks was even easier as I don't really follow basketball. It is fitting for Brooklyn, two truly second rate teams, the Islanders and the Nets (part of what I love about BK is the charming inferiority complex it has to its big brother across the East River).

    Back on topic, PB, thats a shocking makeup for you, truly shocking! All you'd need to do is tell me you're having a few white shirts done with it for me to think that the world has gone to the dogs!

    I actually picked up a couple of white shirts two weeks ago.

    BTW, I think Brooklyn has a SUPeriority complex compared to its big brother across the river. :)

    Oh and I am getting forward pleats on this one. The first time I am wearing pleats since I cannot remember.

    I thought about it, but I think it would go to waste because at around 17oz it is going to be an effort not to sweat as it is.

    I was just talking to Frank the other day about doing one forward pleat on my next suit. What is up with all this Ercoles ESP Groupthink?

    I think the 1 fwd pleat is a cool idea...I saw a guy at MSG with that style trouser and thought it looked good...one day, maybe on my Airforce Blue Minnis Flannel, whenever I get that made up.

    I have 2.5 meters of Minnis navy fresco (0516) if anyone is interested.
