WTF. That whole controversy was about you policing who could legitimately talk about tailoring. Your point was that people who haven't yet ordered 11 suits from the same tailor can't speak about that tailor's work. I said that's stupid. People can talk about a tailor's work if they've ordered one, two, or three things -- sometimes even not at all. You can talk about a tailor's work if you've seen it and have an opinion. Obviously, it helps to have direct experience with that tailor, but your point about only being able to speak about a tailor's work if you've ordered 11 things is nothing more than gatekeeping.Wait, @dieworkwear said that??? ROFL
Oh, man. From the same guy who took it as an affront and waged a class war against me in this very forum when I suggested that it takes many experiences with the same tailor to get optimal results. Now “ten suits” is my “binders full of women”.
Maybe he quietly learned his lesson when he woke-up in a cold sweat with the sudden realization (after his tenth commission) that every single one of his NSM jacket shoulders were indeed pa-fucked and most definitely not very special expressions of house style.
What a delicious blend of irony, truth, and justice.
Hey, I grew up in New Orleans ... not true.The discussion of "costumes" makes me appreciate life in New Orleans so much .... wear what you want at any time of the day or night and you fit right in.
Okay, this is going to be TMI. There are cowboys of Asian ancestry. I know several and one fairly well. During birthing season, I've seen his arm disappear right up a cow's birth canal ... helping with a difficult delivery. He doesn't think twice about it and he does it with the best of them.we're in the "how asians wear it" part of the saga i see.
