    Yikes! That's why these days I always try to carry a pair of rubber overshoes in my bag. They weigh almost nothing and if you get caught in a rainstorm they are a life (ok, shoe) saver.

    Don't panic but I think a mischevious individual switched your socks for some abominable red ones. I suggest you hunt him down and make him pay for that insult.

    Eek! Sorry those didn't work for you Parker as I know you've been after them for a while. As you can see from my sig, not all of mine worked out either! Lessons learned for all of us.

    Luk-Cha, I could have done this via PM, but felt your answer might benefit other members in juggling which service to use from each company

    I was wondering if you could share with us why you have opted to do bespoke with G&G, yet RTW/MTO with Vass...given that Vass, if you get measured and fitted in Budapest, has a hybrid bespoke department?
