What the hell happened that made American men forget how to dress and how clothing is made. Does he think a machine just spits things out. Well for Jos A Bank that is how they do it.

    ok cool now


    . well, the guy seems sincere enough. i dont think he is an idiot, but just perhaps one that is not attuned to fine tailoring as much as exposed as we are. so we all have a starting point to learn . his is just exposed publicly on youtube.

    I was told that a booth at the latest New York Market had center pieces made from defoliated cotton. The girl (and oh man! I MEAN! Woman!) said that many people visiting the booth had no idea what the plant was. Being from Texas she explained that it was cotton in the raw.

    Many people have no idea exactly where their clothing or food comes from. As a professional in agriculture it pains me to think that many people think their food just comes from the store.

    I get the pleasure to work outside all day and get dirty, then dress in custom boots and custom shirts/suits and take the same said girl to the symphony. Welcome to Texas my friends.

    sho'nuff -

    It's all good. Even in the predominant agriculture environments one CAN find people who think their food comes from the store and do not care where their clothing materials come from. I guess that really has nothing to do with understanding how and what makes personal style.
    It's all good.

    no worries, gentlemen: "I've bought suits from many different stores and I've even had multiple custom suits made for me. I've never seen such f_cked up uneven and cheap looking stitching on a suit-- at any price. I returned all three of the Jos A Banks suits I ordered."
