    Although I admire the tailor's pluck and his sagacity for why we like clothes vs. why most buy clothes, I cant help but feel that:

    1. Those in the know (Or who believe in tradition rather than fads) would not need to hear this stated.

    2. Those not in the know will follow the Armani haycart.

    I dont have a single item from Armani.

    I think that The London Times Armani article was a pr troll just to get the knee-jerks to yell and cry.

    . . .

    So Savile Row, as part of it's nonexistant marketing marketing campaign funded by all of the money it's been losing to exponentiating rents, paid the Times to do a little guerrilla pr?

    There was a time when couture was at the same--possibly moribund--level as current Savile Row.
