    Can anyone illuminate me as to the differences between the various (there were four at last count - Parker, Alexander, Cooke and another whose name escapes me) cutters' styles at Poole? This is of course within the broader house style of a median between drape and hard, and of classic and understated elegance.

    For example, apparently Alex cuts a coat with more closed quarters, and prefers vents on a dinner jacket.

    Thanks,

    Bumping this thread as I am interested in the same question. (I met with Simon last night in NYC; the cutter on hand was Alex.)

    Anyone?

    Annual bump!

    I'm interested in this question as well. Also perhaps there are Poole customers on the forum who could post pictures?
