Dear Style Forum Members,
In order to properly celebrate the release of the video series I thought it might be fun to invite you over to my Williamsburg studio for an 'after party' next Saturday November 16th. I am looking forward to meeting you all in person at the up and coming "Style Forum Trunk show".
To help mark the release of the series I will be doing a live demonstration of some of the techniques that you've seen in the videos and will do a final fitting on an example of my work with a client who has commission a suit from me.
One luck attendee will have the opportunity to be measured for a jacket draft which they can take away at the end of the evening and I'll raffle off a pair of winter trousers from my sample collection.
Numbers are limited. There will be a grill on the rooftop for hot dogs, a dubious amount of alcohol and hopefully something educational and fun.
If you think this is something you'd definitely like to attend then please send me a PM with your name, email and contact number. I can only accommodate 20 people so even if it's overbooked I can easily create a back-up list - on the other hand, I need a minimum attendance of 10 to make it worthwhile.
Let me know and I'd love to make it happen.

Would like to thank Andrew for all his hard work on this video series to date and making it possible. A lot of time and effort has gone into its production. Believe me, I have the easy job, we have recorded days of footage which Montauk has to go back over and edit, no small task. At this stage it's anyones guess how many episodes there is going to be. We haven't even put a dent into "The Making of a Coat'. We are as disappointed as our viewers to have to stall the edits at this stage but we all have to earn a living and Montauk has given up so much of his free time already to make this series happen. In the meantime, please check out my promo video and let me know what you think.
I wish I had experience to contribute, but I too was under the impression that Italian (specifically Neapolitan) construction was considerably lighter and more breathable. Would love to hear more
Maybe at one time but not anymore.
