    I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my attitude or choice of brand.

    tailors were trained to take measurements in one way.
    the online MTM companies ask for different measurements.

    I used to make suits when i first went into business
    i was once asked to help fill out a thick as thieves measurement chart.
    I was very confused!

    I won't measure for these situations because it doesn't work. Measurements are trivial unless you know the DNA of the pattern and cutting system. Trial & error for sure.

    Thanks for that constructive feedback. I always love it when people specifically tell me if I am doing something offensive or bothersome and, when necessary, specifically tell me what I can do to improve upon that behavior. [​IMG] No hard feelings, I hope?

    I believe their collective sentiment is that all men should wear suits

    I posit that not all men should. This thread shows why

    Actually, it is more of a mental block on my part. The old Police song just kicked in and won't stop playing. :embar:

    Chas, thank you for reminding me why I'd never use online MTM.
