I used to visit NYC quite often during the week, but in the past year, almost never. When I'm there, I do not have time for teh trivial pursuits. It's your life but I don't understand this. I order shirts about four times a year and if I see my shirtmaker once during that time, that's plenty. He sends swatches and I respond by email. With the exception of Emma Willis who doesn't travel, Paris or New York are probably better options than London at this time IMO.
