Unfortunately, you have to wait a couple years for it to really take.

Today's artisan is tomorrow's flim flam man.

I seem to remember



being assigned to the rubbish heap of artisanry after foo.gif was kicked out of the shop following a dispute about the number of spokes in an umbrella frame.

The crest would surely be a foo-de-lis.

It's worthwhile to note that of the original three makers favored by the Foo (Matuozzo, Rubinacci, Ambrosi) only one has survived the purge of the past few years. That's why it makes sense to have a Fooproved designation rather than 'Dubiously Honored' - there are far too many in the latter category.

however, do we have any instance of the stuff being put to the flame and NOT turning out to have some poly in it?
post #956 of 1166
foo.gif fried his stuff and it seemed cotton-y, but then turned out to have poly.

Also the JoS post says that the shirting supplied to Neapolitan shirt makers is 20% poly as well:

It was actually a quartet, including Marinella. I believe he also stopped using them as well.
