    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I received and pictured this suit on rainy day. I think drooping of the back is occured by high humidity.

    It is not that expensive, I wonder do they have an actual website? Appointment needed?

    Very good, an excellent looking suit.

    Strangely only three buttons at the sleeves.

    Those button-holes are incredible.

    Great suit.

    Brilliant work. I like the way the purls on the buttonholes lean outwards at the round ends. Aside from this suit, I've only seen that on Brioni and another bespoke tailor whose name escapes me at the moment.
    Could I trouble you for a picture of the interior pockets and lining, please?

    Wow. That is very nice.

    Threads like this--fewer and farther between than they used to be--are what keep me reading SF.

    That's a great looking suit, looks much better compared to suits from some of the top tailoring houses. I would stick to these guys if I were you.

    There is a good progression of Ho1joon's tailoring commissions if you follow his threads. This suit has a nice elegant look.

    Most obvious observation to me is to use tailors that execute the styling and have the craftsmanship you expect as their standard procedure. Thinking you can go to a tailor and instruct them how to fit or style a suit that is out of their repertoire doesn't guarantee satisfactory results.

    One fine suit. Then again it helps if the wearer is tall and slim.
