An update on Budd: their new web-site now features an on-line shop. According to Mr Rowley, this happened last Thursday. Andrey
I'm definitely not a celebrity or a famous man, but was on receiving end once. An owner of a shirtmaking business mentioned (even bragged) on a Russian-language forum that I ordered shirts in his atelier -- without my consent. I felt offended. So much so that I considered to end my custom. As for mentioning customers *with* their consent, this is generally OK for me. But then again, discretion and good taste should be applied. Sorry, but I don't think that this fitting...
Stephen Lachter makes a similar cuff -- he calls it a "flowerpot cuff". Though when worn, it doesn't look any different than a normbal barrel cuff. Andrey
It does. Turnbull & Asser started to use this machine for their shirts some time ago. I'm still not convinced this is the right thing to do, though...Andrey
For good! Andrey
Suspenders or braces? Pants or trousers? Andrey
Tailored clothing sold there are definitely not SF-approved. But the accessories (primarily pocket squares and ties) are were unique. I don't know where else one can find a print like this: Yes, for some this is hideous. But I'm glad I bought the tie when I could. Andrey
This is old news, discussed here before. Arny's web-site finally got transformed into a farewell letter: It's interesting that they still mention "Ateliers de Grande Mesure Arnys". Is it a separate company now, still under Grimbeut's ownership? It is a common wisdom that RTW always subsidises bespoke -- would be interesting to check validity of it for Arny's. Andrey
RSS, Glad you are back! Sherwoods' books (both "Savile Row" and recently published "Perfect Gentleman") are just glorified collections of press releases. Very boring stuff. Nice pictures, though. A&S book is excellent. But I heard it's sold out and difficult to find these days... unless Darren Beaman would send you a copy. :-) Andrey
Gentlemen, What is your opinion on current offerings in Holland & Sherry's "Dakota" book? I'm looking for a new pair of whipcord trousers, and this range seems to fit the bill (English made, with weights up to 16 oz), but H&S has a mixed repute on the forumland. Is this cloth bespoke-worthy? Andrey
