@dirnelli is French so he will likely know more about the Meilleur Ouvrier de France, another info source would be @SeamasterLux. As I understand it, the MOdF follows the examples laid down by medieval trade guilds with their arduous master level examinations. It's also highly respected on every field, very difficult to earn, and also a source of high stress as the maker is expected to uphold a consistent high level of craft. Not all get a ribbon at these tests, you...
If you think this "Sartodinapoli" guy has aggressive, negative, and vitriolic posts on Styleforum, you have not read his texts on Dressedwell: http://www.dressedwell.net/members/sartodinapoli.388/ To this day I cannot recall a single positive or kind comment from the user, so I've blacklisted him many months ago and I hope he will be banned at some point. He seems like a bad person who really should have better goals in life than vomiting hate on clothes forums.
Here's a little something I have never seen before: wholecuts painted as spectators. Can you guess the maker?
Strange! There really is no mention of Edward's going down on the site. My bad.

I have for you two Johnston's sweaters made for the inimitable Berg&Berg webstore. Colours are navy blue and mottled orange. Both are size XL, slim fit, made from thicker and warmer wool. Material is 100% Woolmark-certified pure new wool. NB: one sweater has a wrong tag that states material as cashmere, but both are really lambswool. Threads spun, sweaters knitted, and finished in Scotland. Raglan sleeves, turnback cuffs, Aran knit pattern on chest only. By design it...

This here's a nice casual short jacket for those windy, rainy days when it's not yet cold enough for wool. New without tags.

Material 100% Storm System cotton woven by Loro Piana, rain and windproof. Short collars that can be lifted up (undercollar button missing), elastic waist, welt hacking pockets,...
Something rare for your consideration: cowboy boots from White's. As you likely know, White's is a true handmade shoemaker, and this pair is a made to order model from their lineup. Here's the original version on their site: http://www.whitesboots.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30289 A similar pair from White's is around 800 dollars new.
