Korean Fashion

I've been wanting to get some new suits. My new job will be professional dress. I have never had a suit or dress shirts that actually fit. To get shirts or suits with the right arm length, the body of the suit/shirt had to fit a much larger man.
Three weekends ago I went to Itaewon to go suit shopping. Pictures in hand, I picked out two fabrics for two different suits. I also choose five fabrics for some custom shirts. I was measured then and told to come back for a fitting. My first fitting was last week and I saw the almost-finished suit today. It looks good and fits really well. The tailor was able to adjust it a little bit more to remove some wrinkles and increase the taper.I was able to take the shirts and I'll pick up the suits next weekend. I'm really excited to have some clothes made specifically for me. I don't know if I got the best deal but I felt comfortable paying for what I was getting. I know I could have paid a lot more.
Have you ever had a custom suit?

Only mediocre people are always at their best.

If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.

Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very hear of things, not at the periphery. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the orignaization. When that happens, people feel centered and that gives their work meaning.
