I'm not a regular on this thread but Jompso is having an actual real problem here. I don't think he is trying to blow people off with these posts. I hope he knows to see a doctor. Seriously, take care of yourself man.

I respect your knowledge, but bear in mind that thrifting for quality menswear in a city where people have shitloads of money is like shooting fish in a barrel. You have competition, yes, and managing that takes some skill I imagine but we don't actually have the Brioni, Row suits, Kiton etc to find, so a suit from a tailor (who will no longer exist, I almost guarantee) that you then need to get altered to fit you is a decent bet.

For what it is worth, yes, if I find something I like and it needs adjustments, I will get my local tailor to make the adjustments. He has a lot of experience, is Savile Row trained and award winning. I'll trust a combination of his and my judgement rather than yours if you disagree thanks.

Just words to think about ebefore I comback and solely address you and siituation. Have you hever felt the need alter a piece of art regardlesss of what typr or era it was or was from u cuz u liked most of it one mpart you wante to look otherwise You are the next person in line. And I promise every  question could everything or to WWll be not only be adressed but articulate in a mannerr that  in a way that will makeit all work togehter and make sense and that'll to be that.

^@Jompso, listen to this man. A lot of us are getting very worried about you, these latest posts are going well past your regular long, mostly-coherent stream-of-consciousness posts. Find someone you trust and get them to come to you.

Synergy for Row trained tailors! For big jobs I use a Hawkes trained one, before the merger. His family ran it for a bit smile.gif the amount of stories and high people he met were endless. I'll no doubt take the 3 piece to him if I can. He can do anything, I swear.

I'm getting it tailored and altered regardless of the mumbling posts wink.gif I want to rock this shit in the office. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Is it art? Or is well made clothing, IMHO, made originally to be passed from generation to generation and altered accordingly.

I'll leave it there in case the others are right in their assessment of the situation. But I see a bully who types too fast.

We may not get much in the way of thrifted Savile Row clothes (it gets worn till it falls apart generally - my dad does this, buys quality but wears it to death) but we do get the tailors.

Wow! Who keeps clothing that long (obviously passing it down a generation or two) and then donates it?
