Ok, you business nerds.Individual consultant: choose for his cv, pay him less because if there is a problem he cannot replace himself, cannot get support from a head office with other specialists and doesn't have an internationally recognized name to preserve that will make him work at a loss.Consulting firm: pay them more but can call head office to get the asshole you got replaced, he can get support from experts at head office, their name is very important so they'll...
Get one of every bespoke offering in the world? Once this is done choose your tailor? Or maybe once you're satisfied with what you get? You'll need to do that anyway but why not have some preliminary info first?Unless there is some info about bespoke tailors floating in the air that my mind can catch without help it should be glaringly obvious that you'll need, at the very minimum, to gather information about who is a bespoke tailor and maybe about regional styles and...
Well then you should have dealt with a small, independant tailor instead of going with an established firm employing a lot of employees, having more than one place of business in Europe and having redundancy built-in that have allowed them multiple times to continue their business as usual after an important tailor left. It is safe to assume you pay an extra for that....
Look1) It makes perfect sense to me that people would ask long term clients of a tailor for feedback, providing they trust that person's judgment. No argument here.2) I would also want to see pictures to acertain if the tailor's work is something I like3) I'd probably talk to people who have tried him but decided to use someone else and see why they did it.4) I'd ask the advice of generally knowledgeable people who aren't using that particular tailorI'd say most would act...
I don't see how the car parallel helps anyone, it doesn't make things any clearer than with bespoke and even rubs out some of the peculiarities of ordering custom clothing...
arrrhghghghghghghhgThe point being made is simple and was easily understood by the much maligned foo: those positions can be somewhat fluid, patternmakers in a fashion house work for designers but often want to become designers, these people aren't getting their law or accounting degrees, their field is not that regimented. I don't give a flying fuck if McQueen was delivering bagels for a Savile row firm, it absolutely has no bearing on the important points.
So does this marcodalondra thing counts as a tar-baby situation?
A "creative" maybe...
You're sorta like foo but without the humour....
Look:1) Being an apprentice is a yes/no answer. He was either one or not one (he was one at two Savile row firms and one theatrical costuming one). Formulating it otherwise means you are trying to downplay his achievements, which is stupid considering what he achieved afterwards means this is irrelevent.2) Not that it matters, I also didn't mention he worked at other brands before having his own or went back to do an MA at Central Saint Martins. What matters is that in a...
