Quoting from The New York Times article: "Mr. Carey, who serves as co-head cutter (with Dario Carnera) in addition to his role as creative director, is dedicated to the signature Huntsman aesthetic: a one-button slack pocket, strong but natural shoulder line and high-waisted jacket." What the hell (forgive my French) is a “one-button slack pocket”? Frog in Suit
Thank you both for the information. Frog in Suit
Meyer & Mortimer (http://www.meyerandmortimer.com) are in the military tradition, probably slightly less expensive than some others. They seem to meet all your stated "style" criteria . Highly recommended. I have been their customer for more than seven years now. If you need further information, do not hesitate to ask. Frog in Suit
Budd, New & Lingwood, Turnbull & Asser, Benson & Clegg...I am sure there are more. Take a walk up and down Jermyn Street and the arcades. Frog in Suit
I seem to remember being told that my tailors had a chance to buy the freehold of their premises, in the 1960's, I think...Sigh! Frog in Suit
“Changing the delivery of their marketing and PR…” These (SR houses) are small, sometimes very small i.e. one person, businesses. They do not have the resources to engage in “marketing and PR” except in a very rudimentary way: a website is the most they can hope to be able to afford and nothing very complex or slick at that. Some appear to give away stuff to bloggers in exchange for a write-up. How effective can that be? The margins are small. Before internet, marketing...
It is indeed nice to find "affect" understood and used correctly and not confused with " effect". I suspect that is why "impact" as a verb became so prevalent.I did not know "contact" was once frowned upon as a verb. "Get in touch" would have been used in preference, I suppose?Invite is just laziness, I think.“Incentivize” makes me want to reach for a stick of dynamite and I am a peaceful man.Frog in Suit
"Impact", as a verb, annoys me no end. I think this turning nouns into verbs started in business, or more probably, business schools, all in the name of efficiency and trying to sound modern to impress the boss.Pshaw! and Harrumph! Frog in Suit
I confirm that laine simply means wool. Cachemire would be cashmere. I presume it is so obvious that they did not bother translating the latter. Frog in Suit
I have no idea. Sorry. I suspect, since I do not think they ever made anything themselves, they commissioned garments from various manufacturers at different times. I think, from what I have read, they moved from "Old England"-type stuff to more Italian-like styles, which would imply different sourcing,but this is just a guess. Frog in Suit
