    Ah. Definitely not an existing patter then. It was created especially for me. I know ed hates to call it bespoke, and prefers the term custom, but I would call it bespoke personally.

    Black-and-white monochrome will either be the next iteration, or the one following.

    Correct me if I'm wrong (I probably am...), but I thought 'custom' is the American term for 'bespoke', while 'custom' is the British term for 'MTM'. Perhaps one of the Brits here can confirm this?

    Yeah, I have no idea. All I do know is that if you use the wrong term some people tend to get up in arms about it lol.

    To my mind, in America bespoke means bespoke, made to measure means made to measure, and "custom" is of undetermined meaning in this case and may be used colloquially to refer to either.

    Sounds like pronouncing a Roman name wrong in front of a group of Latin students. (shudder)

    Shugs, with my uncertainty about your PS choice in a previous fit, I should say that I think you nailed it with this one.

    I think it may be the same hank, or at least the same pattern in a different colorway.

    If it is the same one, I like what you are doing with it here.

    Meeting with a client today. Trouser lines are messy due to this pair being a fuller cut combined with December illness and 15 pound weight loss.

    Maybe (and I see how it looks it in this pic), but I don't thin so. I'm sort of leaning forward and to my left, which brings it so low. In robo pose, it's exactly at the top of my inseam (which, for me, is the tip of my thumb -- TRex arms) Here's today. (Not sure why the shoulder is doing that in the pic; may be hung up on the sweater) [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]
