Just a thought.

Thanks


Well the names follow methods of construction, so in this case vocabulary follows function, which, I suppose is the fascinating thing about techncial vocabularies. So much of the detail, the million odd ways you can construct a garment, lives on in them.

I'm sorry, but what does HOF mean?

This seemed like the most appropriate place to pose this question, Can we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE start a thread that explains all the acronymns? All I really know is BoO is Band of Outsiders and MTM is Made to Measure (I think. . .) Anybody of the higher power around here know if this could be possible? It would be great!

What is OCBD? For example, I see BBBF OCBD... I assume that's Brooks Brothers Black Fleece, but I don't know what the OCBD refers to (Oxford Cotton Button Down?)
