    This was kind of interesting (for me). Found this sport coat by Alton Lane. Hadn't heard of them, but it has pick stitching everywhere, ticket pocket, working cuffs, and some crazy red sharkskin wool fabric.

    Turns out all their stuff is MTM, so I doubt it's going to move the needle on the other site, despite being pretty darn cool and in a relatively normal size.

    Oh for punctuation: Can't tell if Spoo is a grammarian who is patiently waiting or if he's doing this:

    Phonetically it says "ching chan ha," which doesn't register with my weak Korean skills.

    At first I thought it was someone's name, but the family name would be Ha, which in Korean would come first.

    Google Translate gives us "Praise and" which seems lacking.

    tl;dr: IDK

    Dude, we get it, you two don't get along. It's probably best you just put him on your ignore list and move along.

    That is machine pickstitch. Usually when it is done by hand it is barely visible. By machine is when it makes the indent. Also the backstitch is way smaller by hand vs machine.

    That buttonhole on the cuff screams machine.
