I am relatively new to this board and am surprised by some of the older posts concerning Mr. Flusser. Are the naysayers drawing their negativity against him because he is not a tailor but more of a "designer". And if so, what's wrong with that? I have purchased some items from him and I think they are very well tailored, extremely comfortable and depending on the cloth selected, fairly priced. I don't agree with everything his books say but I give him credit for compiling such a wealth of information into his 4 or so books. I refer to them often and proudly display them in the sartorial section of my library.
