    Thanks, I will repost some of the best stuff I had on the old one. Since I can walk into Savile Row and St James now even at 3 in the morning if necessary to satisfy your needs and snap all the opera pumps and velvet slippers currently displayed at the Lobbs, EG and elsewhere, there should be constant supply of good material :).

    At least the name so ridiculous, that people will notice. But here's my friend Fritz to blame.

    Which flannel did you decide to get? Did you source it yourself and if so why?

    It is Harrison's 16.5/17oz or something or another. Very heavy. Forex was placing an order from Huddersfield so I placed mine with his. No real reason for getting it myself other than tagging on his order.

    I'll never root against a hometown team...Islanders playing in our backyard now, my kids will actually have a team they can grow up with...easy choice, especially considering how the Garden treats its longtime season ticket holders.

    Do you think Frank has time/knows how to make 1300 posts on an internet forum? Isn't that what Jeremy was hired for?

    Seriously though, that kid has made his operation so much more efficient...solid hire.

    I think there is still room for improvement but maybe that is just me. Still miles better than waiting for tours by the European tailors.

    It seems more trouble than it is worth to try to source fabrics that Frank can get himself.

    Still a lot of room for improvement, agreed.


    Yeah, you're right, but the opportunity came where I didn't have to do anything so I took it, but I also like knowing exactly what I am paying for in fabric.

    You can't change on the knicks though. At least I can't.
