Had an awkward time yesterday when my boss accused me of lazy editing and told me my draft was full of grammatical errors. There is no easy way to tell your superior that his amendments were all incorrect or that maybe he should give me some credit for having 4 years of experience as an English teacher.
@arahat  So who who is this mystery shoemaker?
That donegal is on my wish list too. Any chance if getting a pic of it in action?
Yep. And judging from their Facebook posts they just got back today. New ties out tomorrow!
What was your point? I think jommyhoffa was actually referring to an earlier post mate.I also am starting to agree with him. As we all know 90% of the beauty of a good suit is in the fit. IME my best (Suit Shop) and worst (random traveling tailor) suits were both made in china. Then I've had an Italian (PJ) and French (Aus Tailor) commission that were both somewhat disappointments due to issues of fit where the construction may have been fantastic but something went wrong...
Met too. But there is only so far most will go before you get the 'you can't expect a perfect fit first time' or similar response. And if it is an issue that can't be fixed with alterations then you're stuck. Actually I originally thought the main draw as an actual tailor that knew what they were doing and would get the measurements and fittng right the first time so alterations wouldn't be needed.
Can anyone comment on the quality of John Foster's worsted flannels? I have been offered some pants by my tailor at what seems like a steal. I know John Foster are meant to be quite reputable but I have no idea if their flannels are any good and I can't even find anyone selling their flannels online.
Is there anywhere online I can access merchants books? Specifically in looking for Frattelli Tallia di Delfino's Brughiera book or any similar books with interesting wool/cashmeres
Do tell  
Yeah. he wasn;t specific. Just said every couple of years someone comes along and causes a debacle like this and screws a bunch of people.
