    I use hemrajani for my shirts and am very happy with them. MTM is a long process tho. I've visites Joe and co several times and have made minor tweaks. I'm very satisfied with my shirts but they are not perfect. We are at the stage where the adjustments are 0.125 inch increase in collar height. I was going to write up my experiences soon.

    Sugar butch used to use them but has switched to luxure.

    Just an FYI, the M Andrews shoes I was given for review are free to a good home. I dunno that any regulars might want them, but perhaps there's an occasional poster that'll want them.

    Congrats on the sobriety - it isn't easy! I have managed to quell my shoe desire today - only one pair of Lobbs purchased. I did add six more shirts to my Luxire order though :( May I ask what you wear your vass spectators with? Do you have any pics?

    Ah thanks for that - I have already ordered a bunch of ties from Vanda - they should be arriving this week! I am pretty sure I got something similar.
