    That's incredible, considering the number of times you've mentioned some designer label or other. You must be a black belt in discounts and sale-spotting. Respect - I also have a strong aversion to paying full price. Anyway, I get how that changes the perspective on MTM - if you're getting your RL suit for $250 instead of $1000, and it fits you so nicely, then you are very much in the wisdom zone.

    What are your expensive hobbies? I'm curious.

    Ok, busy lunch break looking at ties...
    So many different types of Grenadine at Sam Hober [​IMG]

    I'm definitely going to get a Burgundy or Dark Red, Forest Green and Navy Grenadine. I just need to decide how big the texture/Grenadine should be. IE:

    Grossa
    [​IMG]
    Fina
    [​IMG]
    Prometo
    [​IMG]
    Piccola
    [​IMG]





    They have some nice Macclesfields at Sam Hober too, thoughts?

    Is this Henry Carter too bright? I really like the green.

    I'm eyeing this HC as well. It's not as blue when you zoom in on their site

    I'm leaning towards this Panta, even though I really want the green one.

    Thoughts on this one from Epaulet?
