    Another purveyor of mediocrity. It's more "shtick" than "stitch"
    They claim to do bespoke shirts. Look at the shirts in the photos.
    They could be from Nordstrom's . And the "Share Your Wear"
    section of the website. Would a serious bespoke and "quality"
    RTW operation provide such an opportunity for their poorly-groomed
    clientele to display their poor taste? Can you imagine, Finamore,
    T&A, or Charvet presenting such an image? I know that Taylor
    Stitch doesn't pretend to be in their league, but at least they don't have to
    endorse the sloveliness that abounds in our area.

    Hehe. Well, I hope that you come and enjoy yourself. If you feel the need to vomit, there is a ladies restroom on the ground level.

    Of course I'll come. I seldom miss a Meet-Up.
    As for vomiting... I live in the Bay Area. Based
    I what I see being worn, I'd be vomiting all the time.
    No, I'll just sneer. As for the ladies restroom, not to worry.
    My former predilection has been "cured" by counseling.

    You'll probably enjoy the screening of O'Mast, but on day 2, you'll probably have to keep your eyes averted from the custom jeansmakers and go straight to Joe Hemranjani's set up, or Leathersoul's. Of course, if the Self Edge and Leather Soul collaboration is there, all bets are off. We'll be serving drinks, so maybe a whiskey, neat, at noon, will take the edge off.

    Were they wearing summer scarves in the pics?

    I've only popped by once but they hand make beaver felt hats in whatever style you like. Expensive, but seem to be well made.

    Heh, well Comrade, they make a decent play shirt. Work shirt, maybe not so much. I think Modern Tailor will be there, though.

    To clarify, Joe Hemranjani of Mytailor, not Modern Tailor, will be there. They are fine outfits, but considerably different, and are priced accordingly. Mytailor (you can go to the site at www.mytailor.com,) is more of a touring outfit, and they offer a larger selection of high quality shirting and suiting fabric. For example, they carry Lesser&Sons and Holland and Sherry books for suiting. Of course, the prices are accordingly higher.

    It really depends what you are looking for. We are looking forward to seeing Joe on the site more regularly in the near future.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I just want to indicated that I am exercising unusual self-restraint in not launching into a "Beaver" pun about the hat ladies.

    Leather Soul? A deeply personal disappointment.
    As soon as I got to LA last year I braved the parking
    conundrum around Rodeo Drive and popped into
    the store while my long-suffering wife drove around
    looking for a spot. WIthin seconds I learned from the
    attentive staff that they didn't carry 3EEE. No
    need to park. Beautiful shoes. Perhaps, I'll get a pair
    for display purposes.

    Oh, Roger... I've met the folks from both shops. Both the owners and their products impressed me. They don't have the heritage or knowledge of Charvet, etc, but they are dedicated to building building these things in their businesses. More importantly, perhaps, their ability to reach young people means that they're rebuilding lost heritage, knowledge, and taste in society. For that, I'm thankful.
