Is five months to the day patient enough? Time to crack the wip on this phantom anaysis B.

We need provocation but not the kind of silly provocation that the Rake did on Camp de Luca. Please be mindful of that.

Thanks in advance.

Has Tutee ever wielded a pair of shears? If not, remember simply reading Greys anatomy doesn't make you a surgeon. Amateurs should learn when to shut the fuck up.

The same could be said of Sator. But he provides information which is useful to some people.

Why would you post on this forum if you don't respect amateurs?

I'll plagiarise and post Wikipedia's entry on Horace and then pull a A. E Housman act shall I? See how long it is before you jump all over me.

An absurd follow-up to an absurd post. Keep at it.

I respect amateurs when they remember that they are amateurs and/or enthusiasts, but some go beyond that and because they are good writers and skilled in debate/argument they have over the years gained influence. In terms of silhouette, cloth pattern, style all views are valid, but technical issues, technical discussions require technical knowledge and training.

Look Manton, just tell us your tailoring qualifications and then we can all see what technical training you've received in the craft. Come on, put some meat on the bones. What are your tailoring credentials?

^^^It's not like tutee is disputing what any tailor has said in contradiction of him. I really have no idea what you're fussing about. Anyway, much of his analysis was clearly based on published references, not merely the whim of his opinion. I agree a non-tailor certainly cannot pretend to understand the intricacies of the craft. However, one can still learn to appreciate good tailoring and bad tailoring. It doesn't take a tailor to notice that a front balance is short or that a collar is loose, just as it doesn't take a doctor to realize one's got a fever or a stuffed nose.

I found his post somewhat pretentious and patronising. Maybe he needs to change his style. It doesn't take a tailor to necessarily know bad tailoring. but a tailor is the best person to propose the remedy and it's execution.

Great thread - I like all 3 to be honest. Something funky is up with the buttoning on Steed #3.

You seriously can't see the flaw in this logic?

You often strike me as an ass, but rarely as quite this dumb.

Tutee has been around the forums a long while and has an incredible wealth of experience. I wish he posted more. Perhaps he sounded pretentious to you because he actually had something to say. The forum has gotten depressingly boring over the past year. Nobody has a substantive reason for liking or disliking anything, and few endeavor to refine their knowledge or reasoning. With tutee, I can know exactly what he thinks and why, even if I don't agree with him (and I do). Without guys like him here, we're just a bunch of school girls gabbing vacuously.
