Not in my experience. KFS had an American licensee through the 70s and 80s. KFS tailored clothing I have seen was US-made, sometimes well.A lot of these 40s proportions were revived in the 70s. The recent Polo model, the Garrison, has the wide lapels that leapfrog back over the 70s stylings of Tom Ford to the 40s Cary Grant wardrobe that inspired Ralph originally.Not ill- judged at all. Everyone did it, and many labels and designers licensed far more promiscuously. ...

In that case, the bluster is all yours, and derogative by definition.The OP stumbled at the gate in not disclosing his promotional relationship to the tailor. This has no reflection on the tailor's work, and the tailor himself was wise to stay out of this thread. Why the OP has not posted further I have no idea, but it is reasonable to infer he was burned by the experience.The more recent poster/tailor client has ordered three suits for starters. Would I, or many of us,...
MACK11211 NEW SEASON SALE: 100 items start at $9.99! Dear Folks: This week, as many have already seen, nearly half my listings -- 100 items in all -- have started bidding at $9.99, with no reserve. These items range from the popular and the classic to the refined, exotic and obscure. You could get a great shirt, coat, suit or pair of shoes for less than the cost of shipping. There is also a selection of fall tweeds from English bespoke houses like Tobias Bros....
Like unbelragazzo said, only I would recommend the darker gray suit with the white shirt and the small-print-on-dark-ground tie. Rehearsal dinner says evening, so dark suit, light (probably white) shirt, darker tie. Nothing black except perhaps socks and belt/shoes, but keep it simple. Try to make it elegant. You'll be (half) the center of attention, regardless of what you wear.
If the discount requires you to make a first time order of several shirts, be wary. Best to make one first, see how it fits, and then get more based on inevitable tweaks to the pattern. That's how CEGO has done it for me. So the BB discount may be no bargain.
New season, new year -- let's make some space! 100 items start at $9.99! See them all here
