nice writeup and some sound advice, a bit of a fluff piece if i'm going to be honest but any exposure is good i suppose.

Interesting article. I found it a little disappointing that they said the main problems were the length of the sleeves and jacket, after all the aforementioned sophistication of a proper fitting.

^PG was interviewed.

Nice to see you around. Haven't you seen the Queen yet? Or are you continually on the way?

Ah. I guess I should read it then.

Thanks. I do pop in from time to time. As for the Q, I'm still waiting. Not easy, to get an audience with ole Betty.

G. Bruce Boyer said it and PG alluded to it, bespoke is really about fittings.

Fittings before, and even after, the final product.
