I certainly don't have a dog in this hunt, but it occurs to me that someone with such "fine taste" and considerable consumption of expensive and finely tailored clothing sure does behave like a 5-year old. Pity too, since I like reading his analyses/experiences when he checks his bile at the door (which unfortunately, happens all too infrequently lately). I don't understand all the back and forth about who the alterations tailors are, and who cuts and who sews. The bottom line should be if the garment is beautiful to its wearer, and if the purchaser feels it's worth the investment. Well, that's a concept that seems lost on many on the forum. Jon.
