    The suiting thread

    I asked my tailor once on how he dealt with really difficult customers. He said he doesn’t turn them away, charge more, no free alterations and prioritise lower. He still likes money.

    In addition to Jack Welch's advice, Ray Dalio's Principles might be an interesting short read.

    i’m curious on this as well. think firstly you have to consider whether he’s good enough for you to want to put in effort to change him. even if not, you might encounter another similar personality, would be a good learning point in management either way. self esteem, lack of communication (both ways) and even how you treat him might be an issue. your communication skills are pretty polished and might deter him from opening up etc, so many reasons one can guess. instead of being a figure of authority, treat him more like a friend? ie care about why he’s being such as asshole lol, after all you guys will spend a ton of time together. do you explain your reasons in asking him to do x etc. i also find asking a person directly why they act a certain way pretty effective and often overlooked, of course with genuineness.

    My thoughts on the jeans-muslin fitting, interested to know what you think. Trousers are usually drafted according to a normal/good posture. 1. Most people now have a forward-tilted hip, leading to an imbalance. Which (is annoying to fit & proper fit might lead to other daily troubles i.e sitting) causes the sag between the hip and knee. - This causes the knee/calf area to feel tight, simply because it drags along the calves. 2. Also, based on the lines on the back hip & crotch, curve should be deepened. Then again, could be the thick polo/shirt that he's wearing.

    Hey guys, i'm looking to purchase a leather briefcase around SGD500, cheaper the better. I've heard of RFclarksaddlery and Henry tomkins but their designs aren't as appealing to me. Any suggestions?

    Trousers/Pant

    Yeah i've seen trousers in Takashimaya (house brand) that has the same tab; pretty pricey at SGD180. Those shorts look mighty comfortable, makes me feel like burning my Uniqlo chino shorts. A full length picture would be better though, been looking at too many male crotches and asses lately. Hard to find a tailor that doesn't do trousers K-pop style, "现在的年轻人都是这样穿的". Would it look a little too casual without the belt? I agree side adjusters are pretty damn cool.
