    I'll be heading there in a few weeks. Probably not to get anything more than a few pocket squares. But we'll see. It's a bit of a ways; I was hoping it was in Gangnam, but it's downtown.

    Too much going on there, Pliny. Solid shirt would be much better.

    I didn't know you were a dentist?

    Working's fine for killing time, but it's a shaky way to make a living.

    This is my first post in this thread as I felt few of my other fits were worthy of its title. I'm curious as to the kind of feedback, if any, I'll get here.

    People may quibble with details but I think it is generally quite nice. Welcome to the thread.

    By far one of my favorites from you, which isn't surprising because I am more on the conservative side. In my opinion, it is in good taste. A shot of the jacket buttoned?

    Edit: just noticed the cuff links...not sure they work with a fit that casual.

    I'll quibble. But first , my compliments on a tasteful and excellent-fitting
    combination. I love the cut of the jacket except that it could be a bit longer
    and looser fitting.
    My quibble: A lighter color vest in fawn or grey would look better and
    add some contrast.

    Mrs. C had granted permission for me to get a linen suit from them. Not sure I will, but now at least I have the option.

    Regardless, they have some nice wool-silk pocket squares for a decent price (50USD). Interested to see how they stack up to Drakes, so I'll pick up a few.

    I'm also going to try to encourage them to register and post on SF.

    In Korea they are well known for their successful use of social media, and are generally held to be one of the five best tailors in Seoul, though apparently the top three are well ahead of them. Run by a father and his two sons. I believe the father cuts, but I'll confirm when I pay them a visit in March.

    Cost-wise, they start from a grand (I think for mtm) with bespoke at 1.5. Hard to tell...just going by Korean blogs.

    Claghorn, you should do a short write-up for fun (in a separate thread), with pics of course.[​IMG]
