Lol. I am fortunate to have a very kind wife and she is unfortunate to be stuck with an asshole for a husband. That's how that works out.
I wonder, Stitchy, whether you have difficulty extrapolating from the swatch to the finished piece. RTW allows you to assess the completed garment, taking out the guesswork. That's a perfectly reasonable justification for buying RTW (not that you or anyone else needs to defend that).
As you noted, I do not think anyone needs a justification for whether not they bye RTW or custom.
That being said, no I do not think I have any issues extrapolating what a full garment would look like based on the swatch. I have been very pleased with the items that I had made up based off of swatches.
However, there were times where the fabrics that I found RTW were more what I was looking for the comparable swatch samples. Therefore, for those items I chose to go RTW. Whereas for things that I was looking for that I could not find RTW I found the custom was the better option.
For me it's just about finding the optimal item at the right place.
