I went to pick fabrics today and my new shirt-maker told me that he was about to place an order with Alumo. He said he was glad I came in because he would appreciate a young guys' take on things. So I essentially went through all, or at least a substantial portion of their current offerings with him, and I have to say I was drooling the whole time. Thanks to my good timing he's going to order some fabrics that I particularly liked. -One was a lavender 170s Zephir -another was what felt like a 170s in very faint yellow/green with blue stripes and a white satin stripe. -the other is impossible to describe but i'll post pics when I get it. It was a check, but a check like no other I've ever seen out of perhaps thousands of shirtings I've looked at. You know, when the shirts start rolling-in I think I'm going to have to do a monthly shirt damage thread because i see this becoming a new vice. And I get to do this all again when he receives his SIC Tess samples! I have to say I really love this guy so far.
