For his coming-of-age ceremony, our 20-year-old protagonist goes to the tailor frequented by his father to make his first suit. His disdain of suits is changed by what this first class tailor tells him: "Usually, when women dress up, they'd have to reveal some skin to appear sexy. But for men, it is the opposite. Suits increase the allure of men by acting as a packaging that contains desire."

He accidentally finds out that the tailor has a crush on his father. From then on, he is further intrigued by the older tailor. He gradually discovers that the 38-year-old is changing him in more ways than one.

I hate how the seme kept chasing the promiscuous uke the whole time and the only reason the uke did not accept him is "ur not my type". WTF? The way they portray sex as something so casual (even in yaoi) is annoying.

The idea is really good. However shouldn't a manga about suits and tailoring be at least anatomically correct??
The characters are really touching even though the owner is quite bipolar. The whole suits are sexy business is damn right on the spot for fujoshi but the art is quite irregular.

Too bad the story is really cute.

It was funny at the beginning, the uke was really mean in a sarcastic way, i did like him and the seme was really hot despite his understandable child-like personality. However, they became pretty annoying: one for being very cruel and the other for not having a little of pride! At the end on the extra chaapter you only can get the seme has a one sided love because he wasnt born 10 years before he really was. The sex scenes were pretty hot, though

Boring. The art wasn't special, the story line was too meh and the age gap was so large. I also hated the uke so it annoyed me that he was the older guy and got such a young and cute guy.

And to be honest, I didn't like this. I'm sort of surprised there are so many good reviews, but to each his own, right? I wasn't captivated by this story, it didn't keep me interested. I finished it, but obviously I had no clue what was really going on, just the basic stuff, b/c I wasn't interested. Blame my attention span, but it got old, fast. The only thing that was a positive for me was the clean, simple drawings.

i LOVE Hiiragi and his DARK side!!! and him being a tailor makes him even hotter!!!! i like how he's so passionate about his work and how he changed riku into becoming a better person... riku, i like his character a lot for he's open minded and loving... i especially love the one page of the older Riku reading to Hiiragi; i didn't expect him to be so hot when he grew up!!!... and i was hoping before i read the extra that it'll be about their relationship when Riku becomes independent. ***sadly, it wasn't and that's why i rated this manga 8.9 i would've rated it much higher and loved this manga more if it was..... TT ^ TT

i still like the ending of this manga for it didn't end with them doing love-making and that it's different.

It was a great manga. The plot is interesting and feels real, and you can actually connect with the characters. I loved the tailor's somewhat twisted personality, and it was nice how they managed to overcome the difficulties through the story. The art was pretty nice, too, the bed scenes made me hot. bigrazz

All in all, I definitely recommend it. ^^

Well, nobody seems to want to comment, so Iím gonna do the justice to this manga.
The plot is very good. The cues and the plot are, in fact, ridiculously good. It sounded like a movie.

Two things that I greatly appreciated:
first, this is a story taking place in a shop, and I love stories involving craftsmanship. I could really feel how much the tailor loved his work and that was very moving. It made me want to find something I would dedicate my life to.
Second, it wasnít the stereotypical yaoi story. Both of the men acted like real men. It was very interesting to see that one was chasing after the other. You really got to sympathize with both of the characters, especially with the older (in my opinion, even if heís one hell of a bastard ^^). And both helped each others moving forward, that was a good thing too.
Finally the art was very pretty, I loved their eyes, and their faces were very expressive.

Main themes : finding a goal in your life( central in this story), learning to communicate with other ppl (itís no use being dull, sullen, uncouth or picking on others to get some attention), trying to live up to your loverís expectations, getting some help/advices from older and more experienced ppl (how Japanese-like !), the necessity of not lying (to others or to yourself).

I think you can say that a book, a painting, even a comic, is good if, and only if, it has an impact on your daily life and makes you ponder on your actions. This is what happened for me with this manga.
Over the past 6 years I started reading yaoi, Iíve read many, MANY mangas, and this one is one Iím going to remember for a long time.

I never get tired reading it. I love this manga. Please, read it too.
