Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.

They all make suits, but what makes you go for a Henry Poole above Norton & Sons? (just using these company names as examples)
Great documentary. I can't stop watching it.

When you pay that much for a suit, the total experience should be great. That takes in to account the personalities, service, look, etc.
http://savilerowbespoke.com/members/member-houses/ = A list of Savile Row Members
Interesting to see 2 companies on the list whose addresses arent on Saville Row. Havent checked the video yet but I remember them mentioning (on some Savile Row video I saw) that you had to be within a certain distance of the Row to come under their members umbrella.
It's also interesting that some houses on the Row aren't listed there. Boateng for one.
Anderson & Sheppard were on Savile Row but moved.
I happen to like Anderson & Sheppard and Gieves & Hawkes looks as well.
3.23 onwards = interesting watching and a nice interview with Edward Sexton.

I actually wear flip flops 99% of the time. Even with my suits. And the suits don't get much use! But they are my guilty pleasure.

Good visit yesterday, I've lost so much weight they not only had to take in my trousers but trim up my jacket! Good for the old ego. Apparently the fellow in front of me had a pretty big weight loss as well.
