If I had more cheddar I'd be all over the Formosa bespoke like white on rice.

But that business aside, people canceling appointments at the last moment is usually a dick move all around. Doesn't really matter what it's for.

Flakiness is typical amongst would-be first time bespoke clients. They haven't learned yet that seeing a tailor is not like shopping or window browsing.

I had a good friend who was sure he wanted a bespoke suit. So he claimed. I arranged multiple appointments for him with different tailors before realizing he had no real interest and was just feeling things out. Stupid reasons for turning down each tailor. One let him try on his own jacket and my friend complained that it wasn't styled the way he envisioned.

Bespoke is not for everyone. Usually, the high prices weed out those not serious about it. But the new crop of Italian tailors charging lower prices to gain a foothold in the U.S. invite a lot of uncommitted rookies.

Anyhow, we'll give it more time and hope we can keep it going.


Separately, please save the date for our next No Man Walks Alone NY trunk show : March 22-23. More details to follow but we'll have a few exciting MTO offerings. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

This is legit scary because I have been considering my next NYC trip for March 23rd.

Do you have some kind of backdoor access to my gmail?

Just saw a pic of a Camoshita jacket on the NMWA Tumblr. Which other new makers can we expect to join the line-up this spring?

Unrelated to anything, I like this fabric, Greg.

We have a few new makers this season, and then another handful next. For spring/summer, Camoshita tailored clothing, Stephan Schneider shirts, jackets and knits, Castañer espadrilles, Orcival mariniere shirts, Robinson-les-Bains swimwear.

You can count on Italian mills to have the most awesome linen and cotton cloth books. No offense to Irish linen of course, but you won't find that kind of linen gun check north of the Channel.

Sartoria Formosa visits Seoul regularly and it believe they're hosted by Villa de Corea there.

I continue with the same approach of bespeaking series of suits like I would for myself, so bringing off-the-rack some great fabrics one normally uses for custom suits. This season, we'll have Tasmanian wool, fresco, linen and cotton. We'll have less pieces than FW13 but we should have some longs as well.

Is that a linen cotton? That sounds even better. Do you happen to remember what book it's from?

By the way, I appreciate that you're doing an homage to InStitches with that pose you're striking in the photo.
