Lance. Lasso this guy before he gets us both banned. And I promise, God, I will never make the "send the corporate jet if you want me out-of-town" joke again. Never, never, never.

There was a post some time ago with a scanned picture of the page in Departures featuring Mr Kabbaz. I can't seem to locate that thread anymore. Can someone help??

Thanks

So, does that mean that you don't get frequent flyer miles on those corporate jets?

One man's opinion:

Most magazine articles are mostly PR; written by well meaning  authors who know very little about bespoke clothing.

However, Alex does delivery as written in this article. Specifically, a very important feature of a custom shirt is the Fit. Many shirtmakers do provide a "trial shirt" or even a basted "tryon", but never deliver a great fitting shirt. Alex does indeed go through the steps indicated in the article and produces a great fitting shirt. The construction of the shirt is top notch.

CPATAILOR - Truly gentlemanly of you. Thank you. And by the way, when I was done with the writer (or is that visa-versa?), he was not only very nice and very well-meaning ... but he now knows quite a bit about bespoke clothing.
