You've met the staff, you've made your choices, you've been measured and you've parted ways with a smile and a firm handshake. The difficult part of the suit process is over and done with and that leaves you plenty of time for self-reflection and devoting your life to pruning bonsai trees and meditative philosophies. Except it doesn't quite work that way. Perhaps it’s the ‘boys and their toys’ mentality, but once you've got your mind set on something you want it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the material doesn't order and stitch itself into perfection instantly, leaving you biting your nails and watching the days pass by until you receive the phone call letting you know: It’s done.

|Dear diary: Today I was a human blackboard|
That’s a sentence I never thought I’d end up saying through this adventure.
From the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out, the discussion, interaction, options and even the atmosphere really set a standard that has to be the most open and relaxed I've found clothes shopping. A simple thanks doesn't cover it, but I’d like to extend it to Gresham Blake and all at the Brighton store, with a special thanks to Max for being an excellent guide through the world of bespoke tailoring and for answering the myriad of questions I peppered his way every time we met.
|Max was quite the jovial personality!|
