    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.

    Wow... some photographs would not be that bad an idea (nudge nudge!)
