    Is there anyone in NYC who regularly and reliably imitates their cut?

    Thanks! Hopefully I can pick up in July; will try to coincide with Mina's schedule and that of Chittleborough & Morgan so I can kill three birds with one stone. :)

    Actually David, you and Leonard Logsdail regularly and reliably imitate the H. Huntsman/Richard Anderson, Limited cut, based on pictures of your suits and similar garments and pictures of Leonard Logsdail's suits and similar garments that I have seen.

    Sadly, I have never seen suits and similar garments from you, Leonard Logsdail, H. Huntsman or Richard Anderson, Limited in person.

    Wouldn't the Duncan Quinn model be similar?

    From the pictures of suits and similar garments from Duncan Quinn that I have seen (I have never seen his suits and other similar garments in person, sadly :(), yes.

    Logsdail cuts a suit quite a bit like that. Price will not be much different.

    I can just imagine his reaction if someone said can you make me a suit like Richard Anderson?

    since he is a nice guy, he would probably react in a rational manner.

    Not really, it would be foolish to spend that kind of cash on a bespoke suit without some idea of the cut you are getting. The Huntsman/RA style is a frame of reference.

    Well wouldn't Len show you his pieces? I think your just being argumentative, the original reference was to "imitation" not something like "is there anyone in New York that can do something similar to Richard Anderson?". I'm sure Len is at a stage were he doesn't ape other people's work, I know I don't.....(well except for that get carter suit).

    See? Now I sound crazy. See what you just did?I gotta get back to work......
