It's true. The suit I got from Jon is the worst-looking potato sack I've ever seen.

I specifically asked for hacking pockets on my jacket, but Alias made it with straight zippered pockets and a velco ticket pocket.

Alias is even worse. I went to him for a suit, and he botched it so badly that I asked him what the hell went wrong. Only then did he admit that he's a shirtmaker.

I must add that Alias fares no better as a shoemaker: his lasts are ill-proportioned and ill-fitting, he uses inferior leathers and his finishes are splotchy. At $3,000. U.S., and a 12 month wait, I expected much, much more.

Well I can say for a certainty that AJL is no good at making trousers. When I asked for a pair of charcoal grey, slim-fitting trousers, he gave me dayglo-yellow clown pants. And he charged $1,500.

Well, I guess I'll come completely clean. I once commissioned Alias to make me a bespoke ski mask, much like the one he used to advertise on his avatar. After spending several hours going through his fabric books and three subsequent fittings, he presented me with an ill fitting mask with the eye and mouth openings on the back of the mask. Needless to say, I demanded back my $750 deposit.

I just spit coffee all over my keyboard. Damn you.

Oh, man this is funny. HAHAHAHA As in regards to the suit, you sir asked for a Potato Sack suit, and I thus created: And you then have the nerve to question my stitching. I'll have you know I really did apprentice in Savile Row at A&S and created many a Potato Sack suit, perfecting my specialty: the brown Potato Sack suit, also known as the "Farmer", which incidentally is now all the rage in Paris. I say it is you sir that never worked on the Row. All I recall of you is some guy running up and down the street covered in chalk, with lose threads all over your clothes with a pair of scissors screaming: "I'm a cutter" at the top of your lungs. Jon.

Of course, your potato sacks only look good on mannequins, in stage lighting. This is a true potato sack on a real human being. And I'll have you know that on that day I was celebrating my graduation as a real A&S cutter. You on the other hand were busy doing alteration work, no doubt peering outside your little window in jealousy. Your hand stitching is atrocious, it is true. Why, you only have one arm.

Yes, but I asked for a russet sack, and you -- hack that you are -- made a Yukon Gold.

I know an small Italian artisan who will make you the most beautiful Yukon gold. Please notice the amazing soft shoulder, these shoulders made a few A&S cutters weep.

That whole spat is rather bizarre and hilarious. Those silly englishmen. Oh, how I do love London. About the potato sack suits, can you do those in double-breasted or are they all single-breasted like your picture shows? I might be interested in one of those. Very sleek, very sexy.
