    When I was doing my hair this morning it wasn't coming out very good. I thought of you.

    Got some tailoring back from Ercole, did a nice job with tapering a jacket from the sides and chest as well as shortening the sleeves.

    Not sure PB, mine seem to be more open than your's are...Samira is his buttonhole guy, I'll ask her next time I'm in, have a fitting beginning of April.

    BTW, saw the "shirt factory" today...:) Very cool.

    A while ago Frank said he has two girls that do it, one that takes twice as long, but they look much better. I don't know.

    mmm, yea, but those are totally different than ours (at least mine). i saw one of those first hand...nice stuff. I showed him the pic of the collar in this thread, told him thats what I wanted...he was impressed how quickly you piced it, and said he was glad his works was appreciated.

    I'm amazed that Ercoles works on your clothing so quickly. Didn't you commission those suits less than a month ago?

    Yes. Probably because I am Frank's cutest client. With the best hair. Gotta be.

    First fitting with Frank. Didn't bring my camera so had to use the phone, no good pictures. The coat will be lengthened by 0.5", sleeves tweaked,etc. Jacket is 3 button (functional) with a slight roll under the 3rd button. Lapel size is going to be different, it is just facing at this point.
