It’s true… I was once just a fat attorney who wore khakis.  But I still had irresistible sex appeal…. Lol #tbt

Just received my first Savile Row suit, and honestly I’m not that pleased.  The picture disguises some significant problems. This leads me to comment on the ugly truth about bespoke clothing: it can be a mess.  Everyone who has clothing made has stories about forgotten details, unwanted additions, strange fits, and multiple, sometimes fruitless revisions.  You pay a lot of money but you are never sure what you are going to get (in that sense, I guess it’s like hiring a lawyer).  The bespoke process is never an exact science.  Transforming flat sheets of fabric into three-dimensional clothing molded to fit the idiosyncrasies of the human form is an artistic, human process that involves human error (surprising often).  Add to that the problem of the ever changing canvas - in my case, weight gain and then a significant change in my shoulders and chest as I worked out to lose that weight, and you cannot help but achieve in exact results. My advice: when picking a tailor, pick one that not only has a rep for excellent work, but also a rep for excellent customer service. #menswear #ivegotalittleviolinanditsplayinga sadsadsong

The oddest thing about the images from #ferguson are how poorly trained the cops seem to be. Here are 4 images, found in about 10 seconds, showing the police aiming their weapons at unarmed protestors. I know a lot of military and contractor types at this point, and every single one comments that you doubt point a weapon until you intend to fire it.  So are they bothering to train these guys in Missouri?  Also, presumably some cops are ex-military — what happened to their training?
