Recent attempts on my part to verbally explain . . . - - - the differences between single- and double-needle stitching - - - why proper shirt tail stitching is stronger and superior to the use of gussets on a 'cheater' hem - - - why certain twill weaves make proper dress shirts whereas heavier ones do not - - - how to differentiate between M.O.P. and plastic buttons - - - and thousands upon thousands of words on other subjects, all of which could be physically demonstrated in mere seconds . . . convinced me that the forum needed a supplement. Toward that end, a group of we members of the various sartorial trades discussed the situation and decided that such a supplement was possible. And so was born the concept behind "A Collection of Sartorial Excellence". A two-day exposition with experts available to not only answer your questions, but to actually show you the answers. In attendance will be Alexander Kabbaz - Bespoke Shirts & Furnishings, Carlo Franco's Chuck Franke - Ties, Shirts, and R-T-W, Vass Shoes' Gabor Halmos - Hand-made Shoes, and Savile Row's Darren Beaman - Bespoke Tailoring. Our Special Guest for the entire exposition will be A.A.A.C's Andy Gilchrist. "A Collection of Sartorial Excellence", our first exposition, will be held March 4th and 5th at New York City's famous Regency Hotel on Park Avenue. As all of us will also be meeting with our clients at various times, admission is limited and is by invitation, a quantity of which have been reserved for members of A.A.A.C. and the Style Forum. Further details appear below as does a link you can click to receive an invitation until our supply is exhausted. Should you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me using the e-mail button.
