my visit to Napoli & Mina @ Napoli Su Misura - Page 211

I recall pics of Vox wearing the Solito that he sent Jeffrey. I don't think we are going to learn much from that that is relevant to this debate. That coat was a lot leaner and more structured from my recollection.

Donations, I think. I don't think the work he does is reversible.

I was under this impression as well. At the least, I'd not expect anything taken apart like that to be the same again, even if he did put it back together.

Only if hand-glued.

I hope someone will burn it to make sure, or at least give it a sniff.

looks like glue to me.

I guess the glue didn't keep people stuck to this thread - is everyone running for the hills?

Is there any excuse for that? Seam allowances like that should be stitched down, no?

Anyway, the next step is obviously to burn it.

+1. My kids have already taken out the lighter fluid.

I have no idea what that is. Fwiw, here's a sewn down seam allowance from the NsM jacket I happen to be wearing today:

Just checked my seam as well - stitched down. No clue what the glue is about in that pic.

Guys, you need to undo the stitching in order to check for the glue. Duh. No pain, no gain.

whoops... they forgot to stitch the seam down????
there was nothing to unstitch
that is not the center back seam.

I checked this by moving both sides of the fabric back and forth independently between my fingers. If there's glue under there, it's not doing a very good job of keeping the fabric stuck together.
