    So is this a heretofore un publicized center of great tailoring...at excellent prices?
    I've never visited Portugal and have always wanted to go. I actually studied Portuguese
    for a semester in graduate school. Should I start packing?

    Hi comrade!

    That's not the idea. Actually, once in a year, in the national day of master Portuguese tailors, we gather in a portuguese village. For example, a few years ago the meeting was in Sintra and last year was in Mangualde. It's just a comemorative and recreation day for us.

    The price of bespoke suits are very pleasant: about 800€ / 900€ for a super 100's wool, for example. It depends on the tailor.

    Plus, if you visit Portugal you will enjoy a 900 years old country, with a lot of story, culture, tasty food, good people and excellent tailors. It s a beautiful country to see.

    Have you already packed?

    Best regards,

    Alfye
