Damn, good to know! Ever gotten anything from them, bespoke or otherwise?
I've never set foot or ordered anything from the store. I've only talked with the tailors in passing. You have a good frame I would stick with Ezra and leave the bespoke nonsense alone. You're asking for a headache.

I've never purchased anything from them but I've browsed the store a few times. I like their stuff.

Hi everyone,

I am in the process of closing on a 1 bedroom condo in Clarendon and want to remodel/update the kitchen and bathroom along with furnishing/decorating the dining and living rooms.

Does anyone have recommendations for remodelers, contractors or interior designers in the DC area?

Prince dance party.
For the record, I would wear this with crisp white trousers, black velvet slippers, no socks, and a white frilly shirt. And I would wear it to a French embassy ball where I know no one, get too drunk, and break something very expensive.

What's your style and budget? Remodeling isn't cheap.

I'm trying to save as much money as possible. For the kitchen, thinking of repainting the existing cabinets while changing out the hardware, new floors, backsplash, countertop, sink and faucet. It's a small galley kitchen which could theoretically cut down on the costs.

In the bathroom, putting in a shower stall for the tub, new tiles, sink and vanity.

I kind of like the modern Scandinavian style for the living/dining rooms featured on BoConcept and Porcelanosa and Boffi for bathroom and kitchen. These are way above my budget so I look towards them more for inspiration.

I went with the machine stitch route which was $85. Hand stitch would have been double that.
Hmmm. I have 2 overcoats that would do well with this treatment. I have been wanting to change the buttons on one of them for some time now so I guess I would have to decide on that first. How many buttons should there be at the cuff and what size? One coat has 2 larger buttons and the other has 3 smaller ones

On dressier overcoats there tends to be (from what I see) usually 4 small buttons. However, that would depend on the type of overcoat you have. Is your coat a raglan type of style or a standard single or double breasted overcoat?
