    Luxire tends to over correct when you make changes. Just email the fit pic to Theresa and circle the affected area and tell them to cut the shirt properly for your physique and make other adjustments they deem fit.

    Cheers, very interesting! My best advice is to make the stitches as small as possible and tighten them properly. I guess it will take a few rounds of training before one gets this right. Can't recommend it enough as a winding-down-activity.

    I just bought a nice belt from Zegna and the SA asked me that I am long over due for a suit. So I asked him do you have suits with wide lapels (knowing the answer). But his response was a bit troubling. He said they don't sell those out of style suits anymore anywhere. That is the old style. I looked at him with disgust and threw my pot of kimchi at him and left.

    I'll be perfectly honest. When I return to the United States, I plan on gently fucking with a variety of sales associates. Just gently, mind you. I'm sure the novelty will wear off quickly.

    Would love to listen in. Could you possibly tape and share the top 5 with us? I plan on fucking with my tailor next time I choose to visit (read: have no choice but to if I ever want to wear my new stuff)...

    Noodles Thread Group Buy? I'd take that orange purple label, maybe the green white striped purple label. And perhaps a few Polo's.

    Let's just not screw each other over for them. Who's going to bid, and then can distribute? I want some of the clubs and repps. I will bid and distribute if you guys want. I wouldn't mind flipping whatever nobody is interested in. LMK

    Dang! Murlsquirl has some long freaking legs. I am in envy. I look retarded with a large torso and short(?) legs. Bummer.
