Speaking of sizing issues: Mr. Know-It-All had a somewhat helpful piece this week.
My dress shirt cost $50 to get tailored. Not really cheap at all, although if you add in the custom made part, it's a deal. But given that I rarely wear button-up shirts, would $50/shirt be worth an investment?
I have also learned a new English word. It pops up quite a lot on signs in my neighbourhood: Bootery. I'm assuming it means a shop that makes boots. Bootery. I'm going to check out a couple of booteries (sp?) to consider getting a pair of riding boots made, especially now that my belongings have arrived and I now have my helmet. That's one way of finding out if my assumption of what the definition of "bootery" is correct or not.
