    I have purchased 2 suits, 3 sport coats and 6 ties from Mina/Dino since my first visit in July (with a couple more of each ordered). I couldn't be happier with the quality of the clothes or service they provide.

    I have used a fair amount of local and traveling tailors over the years and while NSM's garment quality is as good as any (and better than most) I have used, their service is what sets them apart from others. No rushed visits, no eye rolling when you ask for adjustments (in fact Mina will often insist on making adjustments even when I don't think they are necessary) and never any delays with orders or worries about them not responding to e-mails and disappearing with people's money (as is quite common with a lot of other places it seems).

    It is hard to find people these days who do good work, deliver on time and are just genuinely nice people to deal with.

    They are an absolute pleasure to do business with and as excited as I get about browsing fabrics, or picking up finished garments, I think I enjoy seeing Mina and Dino as much as any of those other things. I've ordered three jackets, three suits and five pairs of pants and I am really happy with everything to this point. I think Mina does a great job of striking a balance between listening to her clients and giving them what they want while also providing tasteful guidance.

    Who is the bald guy? It ain't bald forum teddy bear Ed Morel.

    Mina and Dino are a very attractive couple, I must say.

    ^ So there's that blue/gray check Dino was wearing which people were talking about. Looks really great. What's the fabric make up on it? Wool and cashmere blend around 10-12oz?

    That's Dino's younger brother. I think his name is Marco.

    FC,

    Do you have a photo of the collar roll with the shirt unbuttoned? Also, does Mina have one standard button-down collar that she uses, or did you choose point length, spread, etc.?

    These look great by the way.

    That was wierd. They really look alike at first glance and my first thought was "Holy shit, Dino, are you on chemo?" Lucky I didn't say that.
