Kind of bummed he's not in the tailoring trade anymore, but kind of awesome that he's landed as a tattoo artist.

He has some really nice work on his arms. You can see it in the BBC doc on SR.

Agree, but I kind of preferred the sleeves he made as a tailor rimshot.gif

(sorry, couldn't resist)

But like you I'm a bit bummed as well, mainly because I need more clothes than ink. I've always admired he's style and would have loved to have some garments made up by him, but when I finally contacted him he didn't reply and now I know why. But oh well, the world is full of tailors – though it seemed he did cut an awfully athletic yet soft garment that would be just down my lane confused.gif

Who knows, maybe he can still make something for you. If you can visit him in London, anyways.

He was using Darren Beaman for a while as his coatmaker. If you hired him, he would basically do the fittings, draft the pattern, and cut the cloth. Maybe he'd be willing to take the job. It's not like he wouldn't know how to cut anymore.

You're right and I actually thought about it myself, but then again would be a bit reluctant to approach him about tailoring since I guess he left the trade for a reason. But definitely something to consider. If Beaman is involved it might even be appropriate to use a middle man who knows how to make him keep his deadlines, lol.

Darren is no longer in the U.K. so it's not terribly likely. He's in Chicago now.

I guess this is the universe trying to tell me I should just stick with the tailors I already use. But anyway thanks a lot for your input smile.gif
