I just had an amazing thought last night, combining the most prominent subjects in this thread! Check this: gay, no drape! gay, no drape! gay, definitely no drape! Does drape say "Hey, I'm straight"?, is it the essence of "straightness"? Food for thought!

Now that I have your attention: We don't hate drape nor A&S and I will never say so! So far we have seen more stuff from A&S that was a bit "awful" than that we were shown top notch garments. My theory remains that not everyone has the body to wear (A&S and Englishcut) drape and that thinner fabrics will look even more messy given the techniques their tailors use. The "giving" shoulder seam will give when the sleeve is set in and is likely to cause some...
Compared to what we can see elsewhere being proclaimed as "drape" I must say: If at all in Germany it would be called "Drapinchen"!

Maybe one of the A&S customers, who thinks his suit...

Maybe we can agree on: A fine chest can take a "little" drape! Question: Did Edwin DeBoise ever explain the differences between his cut and that of actual A&S and alike? As far as I know he was not an apprentice at A&S like the others? I guess he has a more profound...
Since this thread started with the subject of mythbusting, I'd like to do a little summary: 1. Nino Corvato does not cut a drape coat! 2. Some men care more about being liked by the MD of A&S than for the proper (in a tailor's view) fit of their garments. 3. A hand sewn seam can be easily replaced by an equivalent machine version without any loss of durability or flexibility. 4. A flexible shoulder seam has not really a direct impact on the overall comfort of the...
