just for my curiosity, was it more than $250?
For kids he's a mensch and for you he's unmensch. Sort of a Jekyl and Hyde persona
Maybe he had a boat payment coming due.
I hope so.
What kind of boat...barchetta?
Even better, Hustler.
You're not house-broken.
reminds me of some show I was watching, may have been a cartoon, kid walks into a dentist's office with a ton of issues. Dentist gets on intercom with assistant: "call the yacht company and tell them I want to upgrade from the 30 to the 50 footer".
Just remembered something I wanted to respond to, a comment you made. Check the Despos thread
Latest fitting with Frank, cloth is Minnis Fresco. Left shoulder looks particularly dropped vs. the right. Jacket may look a bit short but I think that is the angle of the photo. Wrinkling of sleeves will be cleaned up with a press. Shirt is also Ercoles.
nice, the jacket does look a bit short. One (subjective) thing, I have similar sloped shoulders and I think the high gorge accentuates them so I have found that by lowering the gorge a bit, it deemphasizes the slope, kinda squares off the upper part of the jacket.
I have a similar "problem", though judging from the pictures, it's the other shoulder (my right shoulder) that is more sloped. I think in my case this is from old injuries, and is accentuated by poor posture while I'm working. Other than adjusting and correcting my posture, how would that sort of slope disparity be dealt with? Cutting the shoulders slightly differently, just more padding on the dropped shoulder, sleeve head adjustments? I'm genuinely curious about this, as it drives me a bit batty when I see it in the mirror.
Sorry if this has been discussed in this thread, but I couldn't find the answer with a search. Can someone comment on Ercole's pricing for suits and sport coats in decent fabrics? I've been meaning to make the trek out to Brooklyn after hearing a lot of good things about Ercoles over the years (and seeing a lot of NYR's fits).
