PM me your email address and I'll send you pics.
Marc, you better make sure timeless rider is of age. Aren't there laws against showing that kind of stuff to Minors?
Could you imagine being sent away and forced to wear a poly/cotton blend and rubber soled shoes?
Carl, you're clearly unaware of the amount of porn I have made available to forum members: http://184.108.40.206/cgi-bin....t=10029 I expect...nay...demand some porn in return dammit.
Does Mr. Ned have a house style or would they be receptive to making me a suit of my choice (natural shoulders, waist suppression etc. as opposed to an American cut)?
They have no problem making a natural shoulder garment. They have been making suits for the partners of White shoe law firms for many years.
Just don't go looking for an A & S cut. That is very different sort of garment.
Before opting for a preconceived natural shoulder, be sure a natural shoulder works for you and your shoulders. Â In my case, I thought similarly, until it was shown that my shoulders would be subtly enhanced by a bit of strategically placed padding. Â You should not have to "shoulder" the responsibility of determining what's best for you--One's tailor should offer advice, too.
Very good advice Mr. Grayson.
a natural shoulder suit is really best on someone with normal or sloping shoulders. But a little padding makes much more of a subtle statemnt. I mean were not talking 1980's padding here.
That's good advice - thanks.
Does Mr. Ned have a website? Where is he located in NYC?
I'd love to hear your comments about Carl's shirts once you receive them, if you have the opportunity.
They don't have a website.
137 Fifth Avenue (corner of 20th Street), 4th floor.
Cool. I'm considering getting some trousers made up. Any idea on price range?
Sorry, no idea. I only know their suit prices.
Any phone number? Do you know hours of operation?
Carl, I'm not a tailor (nor do I play one on Internet fashion sites), but having sloped shoulders, I'm thinking that the reason for padding is to accentuate the shoulders by building them up a bit. Someone with square, or less sloped, shoulders would not need such accentuation and, thus, padding might not be necessary. At least that's my case.
