I think he's been at it for about 4 years now, he's mainly been based in the U.S and is now actually a citizen.

From the Daily Beast article.

 “The men who come to me,” he said in an Irish brogue that makes everything sound poetic, “can’t wear a regular suit.” Duffy cuts for the shortnecks, the unevenly shouldered, and the portly. And, using the magic passed down from the hands of masters, he makes them all appear ennobled. For the corpulent, introducing extra darts to jimmy a slimmer silhouette. For the slope-shouldered, increasing the shoulder angle. For the short-necked, cutting a higher shoulder.

Of course, a tailor could likely clothe such men in a made-to-measure fashion for far less money. And for most of us, who by statistical definition have close to "normal" body types, off the rack suits plus a quick trip to the tailor is sufficient. As much as we may love the art form, it's a bad business.

 

Yet, as someone who dreams of having suits made at Anderson Sheppard some day, if I had the money, I'd be at Rory's shop in a heartbeat.

It really isn't a bad business at all.

Rory Duffy Is New York City’s Finest Tailor, but He Can’t Make a Decent Living

The award-winning Rory Duffy says Americans, long accustomed to lower-priced made-to-measure menswear, are blind to the beauties of bespoke clothing.

This was one of the most painful to read articles I have ever seen. Why didnt the author just jerk off the old fashioned way instead of masturbating on paper?

I don't know, jerking off onto paper goes way back as well. AI-Playboy-Magazine-reprint-first-issue-marilyn-monroe-1953-cover.jpg
