Oh, that's right I do think Premier Cru is crap. I have one suit from it and I think it is bad cloth. What you call backpeddaling I call intellectual honesty, or at least the willingness to heed the proferred experience of others. I don't deny that they think it is good and I don't insist that they adopt my opinion. Such a response can be so rare on the forum that I can see how it confused you. I like pretty much all of the the other Harrison books, except Moonbeam, which I think is ugly but I don't have any reason to suspect the quality. I have suits from Harrison and am getting an overcoat from them. I don't really have anything to add to the Reeves debate except to say that I don't agree with him. He is certainly wrong that Lesser is low priced; I know for a fact that both wholesale and retail (though it is almost never sold retail) prices are high. Since he is wrong about that it makes me wonder how much he really knows about the subject.
