That requotation of that 1932 Apparel Arts article has been an Internet icon for some time. It's a historically interesting piece that is worth reading if you have an interest in clothes.

If you move forward to the present, however, its utility is made irrelevant in application in that makers of draped jackets are few and known:

- A&S and its conforming expats

- Knize, a bit

- Caraceni, a bit

- Some Neapolitan tailors, sometimes

- Other bespoke tailors on demand, if the tailor is good

That's it. It's a bespoke look with no RTW expression today.

Not really. Saggy moobs suggest a stiff, thick canvas to strap down the volume, like a corset.

Out of date though. A&S is no longer the holy land. That mantle has been placed on Camps de Luca, where it will presumeably rest until the next issue comes out.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
