I'm pretty sure RJE can buy whnay about 100,000 times over.

How about we all talk about Chan again for a bit? I must say that I was surprised to read on the website that Patrick Chu has been at Chan since 1986. I wouldn't have pegged him over 35 years old, but clearly he must be. It's comforting to know Patrick has such dedication to tailoring and to Chan itself.

Thank you for proving my point. It's not people like whnay who think money buys self-confidence or psychological well-being. Rather, people like you seem to believe that RJE's wealth (whatever it is) somehow makes it less likely he'd have a reason to be sensitive or defensive.

I'd rather not; not sure what the point would be. Why would you possibly care what some other (for you anonymous) SF member thinks of your posts? We both have better things to do on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

But clearly people have attached some sort of stigma to it because it's rewarding for them to think that way.

Or perhaps that you and people like whnay bring it often up as the gold standard? Don't get me wrong; I like a lot of the commissions that whnay and you have shown here, but can understand why (by SF standards) more junior members look up to those commissions from the 'super senior' members.

Patrick might have started fairly young. I met with Ascot Chang the other day and found out Nelson started working for them 40 years ago. He looked pretty young for working somewhere for 40 years but he started at the age of 15. Maybe Patrick did the same. And on that note I am getting some suits made by Gordon Yao and he looks much younger than the 70 that he is.

^ Seems like the locals over in HK are drinking from the fountain of youth. I need to get me some of that!

It's called AZN skin. Of note, I've found blacks can age even better.

It's nothing short of a cop-out to call someone out for shortcomings you aren't willing to describe. I don't want to spend time imagining your shortcomings, so I don't--I certainly don't divert discussion to focus on them.

Sure, Rubinacci gets brought up a lot. But clearly it is mentioned much of the time by people other than whnay or myself, and in a negative light. What I don't understand is why people are surprised that clients of a renowned tailor would have positive things to say on a forum focussed largely on tailoring.

Moderators, is there a good reason why Moo has survived this long? This kind of racist garbage belongs in the dump.

From my time as a poster and lurker here, I gather that you have a moderate to strong form of Aspergers syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (in the clinical sense). You never drop arguments, love knocking down straw men, misinterpret other POVs to the point where it seems like deliberate, willful ignorance. BTW, I'm not jealous of yours or whnays stuff. For the record, I think yours fits better but he has better/more interesting taste when it comes to picking fabrics and details. As I noted quite early in this thread, and in the LH website thread, and in the "advise a tailor" thread, if/when I go high-end bespoke, I will almost certainly go Rubinacci. I love their aesthetic - both their "house style" in terms of silhouette/construction/etc, as well as the personal style of Luca/Mariano (esp Luca).
