I would say that losing Patrick followed by the dramatic departure of Mr L'Roubi have changed just about everything at Number 11. My friends tell me that Mr Lagrange is taking his ownership very seriously and is determined to return Huntsman to its traditional position of prominence.

In any event, I have never heard a peep from them since I received my last suit (about a year and a half or two years ago). But I haven't heard from Peter Smith, either. So I guess no one wants me.
I look forward to hearing how your suit turns out,
Peter has moved down the street to Richard Anderson. They worked together for years before Mr Anderson struck out on his own. For obvious reasons that was kept sotto sotto at first. Mr L'Roubi has cut all ties with Mr Lagrange and received a very generous severance in the form of real estate, according to the wags on The Row.
Has there been any movement on the NY store? I haven't really seen much since that announcement unless I missed something.
Sounds like he's no longer at the company
"Mr. Carey, who serves as co-head cutter (with Dario Carnera) in addition to his role as creative director, is dedicated to the signature Huntsman aesthetic: a one-button slack pocket, strong but natural shoulder line and high-waisted jacket."
What the hell (forgive my French) is a “one-button slack pocket”?

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the direction of the firm. The personnel seems happy, which makes a lot of difference. I was confident enough to make another order. For those who have been holding off since the comings and goings of recent years as I was, it is time to consider taking another look.
