I'll go first, but will have to make it quick. It was a decent visit. I was his first appointment in the morning in Beverly Hills. I got there at 8:30am, well before my scheduled 9am time so I could persue the fabric books. Everything was laid out well. I opted for a 3 piece peak lapel suit in a VBC 130s fabric for a total of $1380. The 110s was $80 cheaper, but felt "fuzzier" and not as fine. He said they would wear at the same rate. I think VBC was the least expensive material. The Trofeo, which someone reported at getting for less than $1000 (2 piece), was actually pretty expensive, IIRC at least $1500 for 2 piece, and a lot higher depending on what "line" you chose. I don't even know what weight I got. It was a navy pinstripe, however, and shoud look good. It was reassuring to see that his suit fit damn well nice. I should have just told him, make my suit look as good as it does with you. In terms of measurements, he actually spent a good 45 minutes to an hour for the vest, suit, and shirt. I got all his attention in the beginning and he was willing to answer my questions. However, he seemed a little rushed as the phone started to ring and a few more people came in. I, for the most part, left the measuring to him. It's hard to tell how a jacket will fit when all you have is a sleeveless piece of material that faintly resembles a jacket that he pins. He did use a jacket I brought it to help him with the measuring. He determine the shoulders were too big and identified other fit issues. There were other things I told him, and he said sure, yes, but I don't remember if he actually wrote some of them down. At this point, it's just, damn I hope it turns out well. He seemed like he knew what he was doing. I expect to take delivery mid to end June. I considered asking for a basted fitting in July, but travelling over 50 miles to see him is just a headache (I suppose not as big as going to Hong Kong!). So hopefully what I get in July will be good enough with only minor corrections necessary, if at all. Might be too optimistic, but we'll see. I have things I forget to mention to him, has anyone had success in e-mailing him after the fitting to make sure it's considered in the making of the suit? For example, this might be obvious and presumed, but I want to make sure the quarters are slightly open, which I didn't mention.
