Let us count the reasons. Â 1) He has spent nearly 40 years in the clothing business; Â 2) He has designed dozens of collections of beautiful clothing; 3) He has more direct experience with more brands and more bespoke houses than the rest of us on this board put together; 4) He has studied more original sources on clothing than the rest of us on this board put together; 5) He has read more secondary sources on clothing than the rest of us on this board put together. Â That should do for now.

Â Does that prove that he knows nothing about wine? [N.B.: sophists will doubtless object that it is laughable, and self-refuting, to compare Flusser to Einstein. Â Readers who have completed the fourth grade will quickly discern that I did no such thing; I reasoned from analogy that a person's prior experience, no matter how lowly or how divergent, has absolutely no predictive value as to his later knowledge of other subjects.]
but if you need to follow his rulings, go right ahead.
Who said anything about "follow"ing anyone's "rulings"? Â Opinions were requested. Â I cited Flusser's, and gave my own.
Hey, it sells books, so who am I to argue.
No. Â His knowledge, his reputation, and the pretty pictures are what sell the books.
Cuff proportions depend on proportions of the trousers.
