I'm suprised he left out Johanna Kastner but otherwise an excellent and helpful list.

It is to most Germans/Austrians aswell. Most of these tailors don't advertise, no freebies, and they don't travel. As everything is done in-house their capacities are limited and a handful of new orders will probably keep them busy for a considerable amount of time. Another thing is the styling which is rather conservative and from what I've observed the end results can be a bit lacklustre, especially at more reginal tailors whose prices are still similar to the ones mentioned. If Vienna wasn't that out of the way on the Eastern end of Western Europe they would be far better known, considering some already are. Still, if you're willing to got there you're bound get good service and a nice and well-made suit.

Viennese tailors always had the reputation of being more extravagant in their style than the German and British tailors, so I'm mildly disappointed about the examples shown in that article. Very boxy, wide jackets, like they were popular in the late 90's and early 00's.

Roycru moves to Arizona.

Same clothes - blazer, collar and John Bolton tie in the desert heat.

Same photos of him eating :-

—————————————————————————-

moved to Arizona a little over two weeks ago. Here's a picture of the moving van arriving with my stuff (a week after it left Los Angeles). Only took me two days to drive here. Stayed overnight at the Mission Inn in Riverside CA on the way here.

My car already has an Arizona plate (AZ uses only rearlicense plates) and it cost less than half of what myCalifornia plates cost. In Arizona, the state operates theemissions testing facilities. It costs $17.00 and takes around two minutes.

Unless you are here (or carefully study the Auto Club guidebooks) you cannot imagine how many four or five star hotelsand restaurants there are around here, as well as many upscale shopping centers. Prices in the restaurants here aremuch less than in California and the portions tend to be (a lot) larger.

Unlike California, there is no traffic, every place has plentiful free parking, and the roads are perfectly maintained (and laid out on the survey lines, are straight, flat, and follow thecontour of the land with no grading).



Moving to a much bigger place on a much bigger piece of land in a horsier part of town as soon as the work there is done.

In Arizona and staying preppy. The new rake we got at the feed store last week is pink and green (and still has its price tag attached, like Minnie Pearl's hat).



Go to the English Rose Tea Room, which isn't too far away,at least once a week.





File under agreeable or disagreeable as you wish

Such a bizarre character. I wonder if he only has one meal a day, or exercises well - he's always talking about food.

Apparently he moved to Arizona because he hates California, and the trigger was seeing a voting sign that wasn't written in English, followed by ranting about immigration... even in the conservative 'southern trad ' thread that drew some scorn, since he's always posting about his own father emigrating to the US! Bizarre

Interesting though. He worked on the Santa Fe railway which does not sound a well-paid occupation, but he seems to have grown up in a comfortable style.

Arizona is apparently neatly laid out and well-ordered, but it does not sound that interesting. Air conditioning is an absolute essential. He always seems to visiting ersatz bars and restaurants too.

Should you stop wearing neckties?-wearing a tight necktie reduces cerebral blood flow.
Lüddecke R1, Lindner T2, Forstenpointner J3, Baron R3, Jansen O2, Gierthmühlen J3.


Abstract

PURPOSE:
Negative cerebrovascular effects can be expected by compressing jugular veins and carotids by a necktie. It was already demonstrated that a necktie increases intraocular pressure. In many professions, a special dress code including a necktie and a collared shirt is mandatory although little is known about the effect of this "socially desirable strangulation."

METHODS:
In this study, the effect of wearing a necktie concerning cerebral blood flow and jugular venous flow by magnetic resonance imaging. Thirty volunteers were divided in two groups. One underwent MRI with necktie, the other without.

RESULTS:
The examination resulted in a statistically significant decrease of CBF after tightening the necktie (p < 0.001) while the venous flow did not show any significant changes.

CONCLUSION:
It appears that wearing a necktie leads to a reduction in CBF.

KEYWORDS:
Arterial spin labeling; Bloodflow; CBF; Necktie; Perfusion

The secret is to go half a size up in the collar size.

???, btw, he mentioned that some didn't want to be included and for some places, he couldn't find the time, mostly shoemakers, though.
