    Nice story, but contains some lulz. You act like you're meeting up with a hooker or something. "He offered me a bagel and coffee and then disappeared behind some racks...I was very nervous."

    In all seriousness, though, good writeup on the first-time experience. Congrats on going through with it, and be sure to post suit pics when ready.

    Thanks for a very detailed write-up. Anyone complaining about your writing style or content can skip the parts they are not interested in.

    By the way, I don't think you mentioned how you got home from that somewhat dicey neighborhood...did you have to call a cab to pick you up?

    It is an industrial area. It is a factory you are going to not a haberdashery shop. It is not the 1980's in Brooklyn anymore like most people think.

    anyone who thinks they need a taxi due to safety issues is thinking like a pussy. As stated before, very safe walk from the subway.

    Wow!!!! that was long and not easy to read through all of it. Could you not summarize?

    I hate wasting more than twenty minutes just reading a post.

    Had a 2 button MTM made by Martin greenfield, the lapel rolls to a non existant 3rd button as if it were a true 3 button suit instead of to the top of a 2 button. [​IMG]

    They also seem to have troubles with the vents on single vents. Make sure it's not twisting. Other than that no issues but I was under the impressions his son's are not tailors and studied something non relevant to clothing or factory running.


    FWIW, I have never seen a MG suit with a soft lapel roll.
