O, Shirtmaven, wherefore art thou..?
Where now thy pithy retort?
Your argument intrigues me. I cannot follow the reasoning that your friend, Mickey Black, being a jewish Scotsman from Edinburgh somehow is the benchmark by which other tailors are measured - or are you drawing on ethnic stereotypes for support. Curiously enough, I too, happen have a similar blood-mix to your friend, only my parentage has added a quantity of Swiss to the mix also.
