    Just got it from a long day, parent teacher conferences plus a "murder" investigation in my classroom. Life in the "hood":

    Just got back from seeing Frank. Changed some deets on the shirt, more tie space, wider and longer points, tighter cuffs and fuck me, placed two more suit orders. On the positive side he told me that I lost weight.

    ^^Ranger, why do my buttonholes always look slightly different from yours?

    The midnight one is an 8/9oz Minnis Fresco and the lighter one is a Scabal 8oz open weave of some sort. Here is a shot of the Scabal:
