    Chatting about techniques for forward-pitched shoulders sounds like actually important and titillating sartorial observations.

    Jeffery was promoting the "stretch" and I was extoling the virtues of the "shift". It got pretty intense and lead to dirty martinis and dark spiced rum. No conclusion reached

    I think I would just tell the client to pull his shoulders back.

    Not to mention Nico's. That was pretty good.

    He's been hanging out in Naples. That's how they do stuff over there.

    Would have enjoyed joining you both!

    Chris, I have some fun news to update you with respect to the growth of my business. I look forward to hanging out again soon.

    Thanks for the suggestion. It looks to be out of print but I managed to find a first edition on Amazon for a few bucks. I've found that I much prefer books that are nominally about clothing rather than dry, technical manuals like Flusser's writing. Peter Mayles' Acquired Tastes was a nice read too. Total fluff but very enjoyable.

    Who needs expensive tailors, if one can get a 'straight-jacket' for a few Dollars.
