One of my tailors had a good client in San Francisco who would have countless -- from my point of view -- orders. On their visits to San Francisco, his items alone would fill a closet at the hotel. I'm remembering three suits in the same cloth ... just different colorways. I always thought of Flusser's words "in color combinations so sophisticated that not only would they be marked down elsewhere, they would probably have to be given away." His clothing ultimately influenced many of my future choices.Who the hell orders 50 pairs at one go?
I did that as well.That said, I like to pay every time I see them so that my "Minister of Finance" (who I also sleep with) doesn't notice a large transaction. This is an arrangement that most stores catering to gentlemen are quite familiar with. Crockett & Jones also sends the boxes to my office.
A friend of mine said "it's your money, why go through the hassle, just be up front with her", to which I said "One, avoiding the conversation is just easier, and two, you're obviously not really a clothes guy". My friend said this after some sweaters from J Press were delivered to my FORMER office address, which he now happens to occupy.I did that as well.
Brilliant.Tailors should keep a stack of Gap clothing labels, Gap invoices, and Gap shipping boxes for such customers. When you order, they just sew the Gap label into the in-breast pocket, write up the Gap receipt, and ship it in a Gap box.
