    John:

    Met briefly with them in the early stages of writing my book, when I knew virtually nothing about custom. They were professional, had a good fabric selection, and were moderately priced.

    If you're in Philly you could also try Frank Ventresca or his brother, or Centofanti. David Bresch has posted here and on AA very positively about Centofanti. I've had great experiences with Frank Ventresca, but haven't bought anything tailored from him yet. But he does clothe many of the Eagles and quite a few of the television anchors in town.

    I'm not in Philadelphia, but was thinking of putting in a bid on the suit linked to above...just don't know what my significant other will say to a 6th suit purchase in as many weeks... [​IMG]

    Never had to do this myself. Heard it works though- go to the cleaners, then bring them back as additions in the cleaners bag. [​IMG]

    Good news. This morning, I mentioned to her that I had found this suit and she asked if I needed it as my Christmas present. Merry Christmas.

    3 sisters--all single--but I've got to warn you--I've got the only one who I could tolerate...so you'd be on your own.
