Not the pants, the attitude. It's the kind of attitude that empowers posters who have experience with a few makers to ridicule people in the trade with a lifetime of experience. It's the kind of attitude that confuses price with quality. And it permeates many of the threads. It offends me when a poster complains that he has to explain adjustments to a maker as is if he were a buffoon or crook. Dario makes pants out of his house, he puts out a good product at a good price and I question the standing of those who have never threaded a needle to piss on people who do so for a living.
CB: I could care less if don't like Dario's pants but I do question why you purchased 8 pairss from him if the fit sucked and the work was sloppy. There must something you saw in his work that kept you coming back. I know that I would have stopped at 2 if the product was that bad no matter how cheap they were.
BTW, does your avatar signify that you went to Harvard, MIT or Cambridge, or did you just grow up in a town called Cambridge?
You're reading something other than what I am posting.
I didn't ridicule anyone. I said what I know to be Dario's capabilities. I don't care how long someone has spent doing something. I offer an honest critique based on experience.
I had to explain adjustments because he kept getting them wrong. That doesn't make him a baffoon or a crook.
I can't sew. But I've tried a number of different makers. I'm writing for people who want to make informed decisions about what to purchase.
I didn't say Dario's pents are bad because they are cheap. They don't fit well because they don't fit well and I suspect that is related to the process he employs. They don't cost a lot but, in my experience, still aren't worth it.
Why are you so emotionally invested in my opinion?
You had a good experience and you shared it. I had a bad one and I shared it. Seems like this should end before you ask to see my college transcript.
