Received email response from NYC agent- yes there will be a USA Tour, starting in NYC and perhaps roard tour subsequently.
Hi Thorn Proof, if you mean John Lee, can you share any specifics or was this generally speaking comment about a tour? Last thing I heard from him is that there will be the MTM option first to gauge interest before they will come over...Thanks!
Hey Torsion. I received a reply from John Lee. Ver cordial. He confirmed, the Parks will tour the US. No firm date yet. He mentioned, there may be stops in other US towns. He confirmed that he put me on the "interested list". Suggest reaching out to him and get on that list. Best. TP
I met up with some of Sweden's finest at Robin Petterson's trunk show in Stockholm. As some of you know, he's BnT's agent in Sweden. This means that he makes all the fittings and send the measurements/garments back to BnT for all the actual tailoring.
I photographed the first measuring of Andreas Weinås (manolo.se) for a new sport coat in a lovely blue VBC hopsack fabric. I will try and make it to the first fitting and snap some more pictures. From what I've seen so far of the BnT pieces Robin has taken measurements for, I feel confident in recommending anyone who visits Sweden to try him out. I tried prying in whether he would be able to do trunk shows in the rest of Europe, but this seems like something he will have to discuss further with BnT.
Anyways, some pictures (excuse the quality, but the lighting was horrible):
