Apart from the fact that he's posting a whole series of videos on the actual process, which he mentioned just above.

You can't possibly be serious - he is posting a fairly extensive series of videos. SF members are often like little kids who have stuffed themselves silly with cake, yet still shout, "MOAR!!"

- There are no pictures posted in this thread or the other one. If you're gonna talk about and promote it here why not paste some pictures here? Shilling for another website is annoying.

- I am not able to view the other website. However TaxGenius suggests no pictures of completed suits on people are available *anywhere.* Pictures of stitching and nice construction are great to have, but suits on people are distinct and important. Fit is paramount.

The garment on the left is a completed Rory Duffy bespoke garment. I can't say whether Rory made his own suit on the right.

Wow - you just dropped your mike and walked off the stage with that one. Well done!

I have criticized Montauk in the past, but he is now posting a full, instructive web series on the subject in question. And you guys are quibbling over why he’s not posting any iPhone selfies in a dirty bathroom mirror??

 

The mind boggles.

What will you do or say when pictures are posted and the suits are of good quality? Offer an apology to those you felt entitled to slight with no basis or provocation? I'll extend to you the benefit of the doubt that you will. We will see.

While we are waiting - please explain to those of us not gifted with genius exactly why you are so critical of something you admit to having no evidence on which to make any judgement. Does such behavior even make sense?  No-one has complained of the tailor failing to produce. None of his previous partners have said he never produced or wasn't who and what he says he is. No-one has complained of him producing anything of bad quality and yet you think you have just cause to doubt him and in my case, his clients?  Why? What do you know that the rest of us, and again in my case, those of us who have actually met him and retained him, don't?

Apology for what? I have never said anything negative about the quality or fit of his suits. Heck, I have never even seen the fit of any of his suits.

This is disengenuous. Don't criticize my posts without reading them, or read them better.

It's wrong to want to see cut and fit? It's wrong to expect results to be posted in the forum where the product is marketed? Give me a break.

Please, it's apparent that you've made no effort to look. You post here as though it's the mecca of all tailors and you're the grand poobah to whom all evidence of work should be submitted. It's not and neither are you.  Try some humility, just for the novelty perhaps?  There are plenty of pictures of his work and a site detailing a close inspection of the work that won him the GOlden Shears. Apply that intellect of yours and find out for yourself.  One can only guess why a young professional tailor would elicit this behaviour from you but that's your business I suppose.

 

For my part, I like Rory as a person and as someone who has tried to set up a business in the past I know the challenges and emotional investments along with the financial risks. I will not let people who are too lazy and or mean-spirited such as you cast a shadow over someone who I believe is honest, talented and let's face it, in very rare supply.

 

Also, please answer my question - why do you doubt that I will post pictures of my finished suits from him? You made the statement/accusation now back it up.

I don't think you are bright enough to hold a camera.

My suspected ineptitude with a camera is matched only by your confirmed laziness and malice.  I can prove you wrong, you've already proven me right.  At this point, it's clear you're just a troll trying to slander someone you know nothing about.  Good day to you.  Genius? Pfft!
