    Well said and I couldn't agree more.


    Look forward to seeing it! I love my corduroy suit, but don't wear it too much as the fabric shrank too much over time. Need to get another one (or two) made up sometime.


    Can you explain this collar lingo? Not sure what you're referring to with popovers and camp collars. Pics?

    And camp collars are the ones Kramer wore on Seinfeld. :devil:

    These, I imagine, would be much taller and probably omit the loop for the last button.

    I believe that I spent some time fawning over your cord suit during one of my visits with Dino and Mina. It was quite impressive.

    I really like the suit that you posted today. That is the aesthetic that I am hoping to achieve with Mina. Unfortunately, I think that the biggest hurdle will need to be overcome at the gym, and not at the tailor's workbench.

    Nice to have you posting again (even if one needs to catch the posts before they can disappear).

    Dammit, let's get this thread back to darts.

    I think you haven't noticed the dart much because many people have been getting patch pockets which covers up most of the dart. The dart is most noticeable on flap and besom pockets.

    Hmmm. Didn't notice that.

    Interesting how the lines of the dart are in line with the trou creases. Subtle detail.

    I think it's very nice. Hopefully you'll allow informative posts like these to survive.
