This was an alternate brand for 'Botany 500' by Daroff & Sons of Philadelphia, my father was a designer there during that time and I have the old patterns and specs which I use to make my own collection with.If there were 2 stores in a city, one carried Botany and the other WorstedTex. Daroff went belly up in the early 70's and the labels were sold off in bankruptcy.During this time they also made the suits for the television shows Bewitched and Get Smart.
Actually, this is false. A QUALITY store has a long-term interest in the client, and will also have a good tailor IN HOUSE. If a suit needs too many alterations, then it is the wrong model/size for you.Every day people bring me garments to my store (I do outside alterations also) that are the wrong size and/or model for them, yet they want me to work miracles and make it fit them like a custom garment, mostly because they bought it at "a good deal".My advice is to go to...

The difference is hand-made garments are not always the exact same from garment to garment because of the human element, and the tolerance is greater (3/8") that those of machine made and computer cut garments (1/4"), that is why they will fit a little different from garment to garment, but not too different.The Capitol Model (Type B) is the same as Type A but with a fuller chest.

There is no difference between them. Type A is the model, 1220 is the make. The same paper is made to make each garment whether it is in the HQ make or 1220. These are hand cut and sewn, so the tolerance is around 3/8" (as opposed to machine cut and sewn garments which is less than 1/4"). The Type A (and Type B which is the same but with a fuller chest) are Oxxford's interpretation of the modern suit and is a damn good one, not at all boxy, but no too extreme in...
we have ready-to-wear from Haspel, but most are MTM ( Corbin, S. Cohen, Southwick and Oxxford) or Custom from our own shop.
