    I assume you are posting here because you did not settle for the MTM services :)

    Correct. I'll post a bunch of pics and some words in the thread a started last year.

    Wouldn't really be settling though....I was with Mr. 6 yesterday and the MTM stuff he has from them is great.

    I know - I meant to be glib :).

    I think the MTM stuff is great, and it certainly makes sense, especially for one trying to build his wardrobe. However, you are pleased with your Formosa RTW stuff - which is around $1,500 - $2,000 - your Eidos RTW / MTM stuff - which is around $1,000 - $1,500 - and your Ring Jacket MTM stuff - which is, again, around $1,500 - $2,000. In my mind, Steed MTM does not make much sense considering that you have significant brands in the RTW/MTM/MTO categories that you can pull from.

    I am very excited to see what Steed can do for you. Look forward to reading your thoughts.

    I like the cloth selection. Which buttons did you decide on?

    Cool. Haven't seen anything made up in WB Phoenix yet. Several nice swatches in there.

    Thanks. There were some really good ones. I had never looked through the book before yesterday.

    Had not noticed the book. I have leafed through it a few times, I liked a lot of the swatches. I thought the book was, overall, very bright and saturated. I liked it.
