The thing is, there must be a market for them. These are nothing like relic'd guitars - at least I can understand the appeal of those things.

Makes a lot of sense that they are on ssense though. Their target market seem to be those fashion girly men who would wear their sisters jeans and pat themselves on the back thinking about how creative they are.

Ok, blahman, that makes sense then. Is that the kind of customer going into Harrolds as well?

I like Modern Tailor FWIW. And their trial shirts are so cheap there's really no reason not to try them...

just on the Craig Thompson curly collar syndrome, I wonder if it's to do with the bias of the fabric? I noticed one of my shirts doing it this morning before I put the collar bones in.

I think in Thompson's case his collars curl up every time he tells a lie.

To be honest, I've never seen anyone inside Harrolds besides the SAs.

Gerry, I think they are aimed at a more fashion forward demographic. There must be a forum somewhere on the tint-a-net where people are talking about these shoes and skinny jeans. To be honest, from design perspective, I actually appreciate they have produced something unique, which is to be celebrated. 

 

However...quality should = price. This reminds me of a great song, Quality control by Jurassic 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgpDN-bARwc

Ha! I was the only one in there when I went in - maybe they offered me coffee because they were lonely and I was the first person  they'd seen that week. smile.gif

You're right and I've found the forum!I was thinking this morning that there are only a bout six or seven different mens shoes and everything else is a variation on those. These are definitely different and I do appreciate they're done something new although they're not to my taste at all.

 

I like that song!
