First take the faces of the shoe pyramid. Then cut each face into two right triangles, invert and you will have tailor tiers.

I was wondering the same thing, maybe usnews ranks them now.

I am going to start calling everything I do a tier 1 activity.

The gorge is the lapel notch. You mean the button stance.

Gorge is related to button stance. It's the negative space of the jacket from the point of closure upward.
