I nominate this post for best use of quotation marks in this "threak."
My boss is a complete asshole, but he is also dumb and complacent.  Also, it's Monday, and on Mondays, we can't be bothered to do shit in the office. Ohhh.... incidentally, if you are not signed up to receive the Styleforum newsletters, but you even marginally enjoyed our coverage of Pitti Uomo, and wish to be entertained by the likes of @Synthese , @unbelragazzo , and also Prof. Fabulous (tm), then sign up for those.  The first one comes out on Nov 24.  I promise that no...
Until very recently, I was an academic.  I think that I subconsciously miss banging my head against a brick wall.
My position rests on how you, other cleints, Luca, and friggin Mariano himself describes his role.  I just put a very traditional label on it that you do not like.  Did I not say that I was using these terms in the more traditional sense?  I know what a stylist means wth respect to RTW, since I have filled that role in many different ways. many of which, you may be surprised to know, are quite similar to what Mariano does, and doesn't look at all like the makeovers on TV...
Actually, Heismatt specifically stated that London House was started by, and continues to be headed by. a stylist.  Luca, who is the heir apparent London House. has said that he is a stylist.  wtf more do you want? Not that curious.  You are the only guy arguing with everyone else, and insisting that things are not the way that they have been described by the heads of LH themselves, and that seems to jive with the experiences of everone else.  Everyone else: "Yes, that...
Honestly, I think that that looks great.  To me, Engineered Garments looks wierd if it is too body conscious.  There are plenty of other labels for that.  I'm not sure what you mean by back flare there.  There is a slight, intentional, A-shape, that I think looks really good.
Kindly see the bolded part. it comes down to this.  When you pay a lot of money, you are probably going to see the things that the service provider wants you to see, unless you slip up.  If you don't believe that, then you would make, or do make, a pretty awesome whale.
You;ve never worked with Rubinacci either.  You have been a client of Rubinacci.  There is a big difference there.  Unless I'm sorely mistaken, you've never "worked" wtth any tailoring house, vendor, retailer, etc... You can speak to your personal experience with Rubinacci, but that's pretty much it.  Your opinion is akin to that of a restaurant patron.who, having eaten at a restaurant, feels somehow qualified to speculate on how the business might work.  You've never been...
Oh geez.  I give up.  The owner of the business can work in any capacity.  Mariano's role at London House is the stylist.  Maybe you don't use the full range of his services, but he is the stylist.  I am sure that Mariano looks after the financial integrity of the house as well.  Maybe you should just call him the CFO of London House.  It's possible that he does most of the hiring.  Maybe you've been working with the head of human resources at Rubinacci all these years....
Sigh.  I'm not sure why you are arguing this point.  These are just accepted definitions within tailoring houses, and in particular, on Savile Row.  And Luca is on record as saying that he is a "bespoke stylist", the bespoke part being there because the term means something else in RTW.  That's as from the horse mouth as it gets.   Mariano Rubinacci is the stylist. On Savile Row, they are traditionally known as salesmen.  It's not a pejorative term. The stylist provides,...
