Interesting. He hasn't to me, although, I've only ordered two things and emailed to ask for pictures of two other things. For example, when I wanted a fresco suit, he showed me Minnis, Smiths, and H&S, then when I wanted tweed he showed me Breanish, W. Bill, Harris, and Porter and Harding. I wonder if he recommended those other cloths for a particular pattern or purpose. I'd say it's true that Harrison and Lesser tend to be better than Zegna and LP, but I'm sure there are exceptions depending on what a person wants exactly. And this to me seems to be the properly complex position of the more knowledgeable people than I on SF.
