Not sure if it was mentioned but I had read somewhere that he was a customer at A&S, at least at one point, and I can...
American Woolens was a ginormous operation which was eventually run (into the ground) by Lori Piana. When LP decided to shutter, thankfully some people decided to rescue it. Jacob Long has been doing a great job of resucitating the mill.
