He commissioned 10 pieces and one was worse than the next. I mean really, really atrocious stuff. The "standout" was a cashmere/vicuna blend tan suit with three patch pockets, shawl collar, button at the mid-bicep so that he could roll-up and fasten his surgeon's cuffs above the elbow, cropped pants with satin pull-through cinch cuffs (so he could hike them up just short of his knee and keep them there) and, of course, more Hermès scarves for lining. Awe-inspiring stuff, really.
