A recent discussion in Another Place on the inappropriateness of ties in the workplace briefly mentioned the luxury that is a bespoke suit. I was immediately impressed with Tom’s site and now have a few ideas as to where to go for my next vacation. Actually, I have been considering East Asia as my next destination for some time now; recommendations for tailors in Beijing or Hong Kong just provide a sufficiently arbitrary excuse.
On a related note, it appears that Charles Tyrwhitt, a Jermyn Street shirtmaker, offers 50% off initial orders. (A catalogue showed up unannounced a few days back.) The current crop of FaÃ§onnable shirts is also a bit colourful, with a good showing of greens and purples for Easter.
