ha! any other stories. I'm sorry to have missed this.
^ Wait, you overhead that? Too funny!
ha +1. It is kind of interesting overhearing interactions with the other customers. They vary from excited and happy to be there to some that I was kind of like...if you dislike everything so much, why are you here?
You didn't jump in with - *cough* minnis 0520 *cough*? Actually I'm not sure if 0520 is best characterized as "air force blue" but seems to be the iGent color dujour.
^^ Not 11 oz. so no dice.
True. 0520 is my best guess as to what the iGent was really looking for, assumming he is following SF group think.
Smiths finmersco or other similar cloths would fit the bill better on color and weight, but are less hyped.
I think everything will need to be re-cut. I'm 6'1" with long arms and don't mind a shorter length jacket however this looked a size or two short length wise. The jacket was also a bit tight at the arm scythe, which Mina noted before I even thought to mention it. The shoulders and buttoning point she makered were good. She prefaced my fitting by noting the importance of latter with length being something easy to correct. They took extensive photos of me and even video, so I'm pretty confident the changes will be implemented correctly not to mention all the great pictures of finished products on the board.
Did you specify anything to her at the first meeting or did she just take measurements and pictures?
How much should be specified at the first meeting?
My first appointment in July(?) was just measurements and picking cloth.
This is hilarious, I saw some igents too when I saw Mina. I'm thinking about an old guy with a nasally voice lecturing them on why they need to carry Riva and Bonfanti. It's interesting to compare the atmosphere and customers in the WW Chan suite vs. the NSM suite on their NYC tours. I spent over an hour looking through cloth books etc and saw 7-8 other customers come and go. All of them but the aforementioned igent were > 6'2", upper 20s or maybe early 30s, and thin. The Chan suite is generally much more mixed in terms of age and body type.
Re: Mina, from what I've seen, her house style is more appropriate for thin guys, who tend to be younger.
Frankly, if I were still in that age group, and when I was, I was very trim, I probably wouldn't have considered NSM,
because of my build. The last time I was thin I was four years old.
Well this eliminates me.
If mina is going to recut, is that at her expense, or yours?
what's mina's price range on the cappelli ties??
