"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

History lesson (from July 2011): I still get messages/emails about the pros/cons with MTO v bespoke.
Friday Business Casual in Blaze Orange
5th day of rain - EXERENT!

* take note of the shape & undisturbed line of the jacket even whilst holding up an umbrella.
There is nothing wrong with MTO if the tailor/fitter knows what he is doing which is unfortunately a rarity today. I have seen more “car wrecks” from E. Zegna “Su Misura” than a roller derby & they average more than 3 times the cost of a P Johnson MTO commission.
Ready for a @attaquer change ..
Wonder if @alexroseinnes is in his “CloudNine” kit ..
*Will post better pics later, though iPhone5 timer is not bad.
Don’t trust a man that doesn’t own a umbrella large enough for 2. & I don’t mean a disposable or golf umbrella. You want WOOD ;)
