    I really like it. What construction did you opt for?

    The vets have been a bit mum about your combinations (maybe the issue is that the thread has utterly lost steam), but, to my eye, your combinations look great.

    I have the same issue when I photograph some of my navy jackets. They look damn near black in pics. Odd.

    It's rather common on shitty cameras. There's so much contrast between the navy and everything else, that either you get the true jacket colour and an overexposed everything else, or a true everything else and an underexposed jacket.

    i quite like it myself.

    All my Hobers are the standard configuration 3 fold for silks, 4 fold for grenadine. Rolled edges.

    No answer or concerns on the silence, but thank you.

    Brothers I believe. I'm yet to make it to Antonio's, since Polanco traffic is so crazy.

    But will be down there next week.

    Iphone 4S and better users can benefit by turning HDR on. This has helped me quite a bit with exposure issues.

    Thing is Antonio passed away some time ago, but the tailors in there learned from him.

    So you're getting a suit from Anotnio?

    I like it, but I'm not sure if the gurus here would consider that in good taste [​IMG]

    Nice! A lot of Brioni's and Kiton's. You are coming to Mexico City or you are from here?

    It's an awful lot of stripes but I think the colors go great together. The square is great.

    unbelievable store in mexico city. it'd be a top 10 menswear shop in the US based on volume of kiton, etc alone.

    the prices are not bargain-basement pricing, but slighter lower than full price US, and you get VAT back.

    I do not know who buys Kiton in Mexico, but they have that and tons of Borrellis.

    Great selection of New Old Stock as well.

    Enjoy, and take plenty of photos.
