If you pick up a book, it might be worth distinguishing whether the book is about creating one-off patterns for a single person (ie something a bespoke tailor or at-home garment maker would do), or if it's for creating ready-to-wear patterns for a mass of people. As I understand it, the two processes are very different. A bespoke tailor can leave allowances in a garment and will rely heavily on the fitting process, whereas RTW makers have to get it right before the pattern...
+1I didn't know James was looking to crowdsource the financing for his work, but I agree with everything above. Plus, online crowdsourcing for media seems a lot more honest than the old traditional model (which is to rely on corporate dollars), and the new traditional model (which is to create advertorials).

You can email me at this StyleForum handle (dieworkwear) at gmail. I can then pass your info along to James.FWIW, James recently did a radio story on ToJ. He and his team also stopped by Sam's Hot Chicken. The restaurant is definitely run by Drew and his girlfriend, in case anyone had any doubts.
Too Narc Dad?I was also thinking Victory Sportswear/ Hersey, but they look even more Narc Dad.
I realize this is splitting hairs, but anyone have an opinion on which color is better? To @ericleavitt, I like the second shoe the best, and maybe the black boot, but the first would also go well with EG stuff, I think.
