I stay out of it but we can all draw our own conclusions...

Please don't deal with crooks.

Controversial – love it; why a 'crook'? In my mind there is surely only one reason.

Karl Matthews has the balls to make it on his own. I wouldn't worry too much about him.

I was told he just was not getting what he wanted out of his position and that it was frustrating for him. Anderson's trained him has a cutter and a tailor then had him front of house. I know he was a huge ambassador for the company so I am guessing that the only way he could get his creative juices flowing was to do work outside work. Maybe he just out grew the company, who knows? I will miss seeing him there but I guess he has not left the planet.

I did enjoy having a chat with him...

He was interesting....

Colin is a nice man but he is quite serious...

I quite like having a laugh ,it is why I used to enjoy talking to Johnny Allen or Chiara Rubinacci..

There's also some amount of technical information about how they do things. I thought this one on drawing armholes was pretty interesting. I guess they are still teaching rock-of-eye to the young ones:

A recent Vanity Fair pictorial listed suit, shirt, tie and pocket square all by A & S. A friend tells me that A & S will add bespoke shirts to their offerings in 2011. Do any SF members who are customers of the firm have anyt further info?
