• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I agree with GBR. I can understand how there could be a disagreement, but it seems that he could have remembered the details. While I do not know Matthew or his work, I do hope he comes out ok. I think there is enough business and good tailors will continue to work.

How you distinguish "stealing a client list" from retaining detail in your memory eludes me....

Gentlemen, I fear you may need to re-read the original article again, which I have linked for your convenience.

'Allegedly' he has e-mailed himself confidential client information, amongst other alleged misdemeanours.

Happy to share with everyone that I recently had my third fitting with Mr Farnes in New York during his client visit and it went really well. Everything has really taken a nice shape, and now I'm just waiting for the finished product!

Weird...

So, the rumors of Mr Farnes becoming an alterations tailor at Huntsman are greatly exagerrated?

So is he still working as a tailor? I really enjoyed his website/blog/videos and was considering having a suit made w/ him.

Dear all,
My situation has changed. I am supposed to meet with Matthew in New York this month to receive some completed suits, and for a fitting on an overcoat. However, he has fallen off the radar and isn't returning calls or emails. Andrey, or anyone else who may be able to help, please let me know if you have any information that can help me get in touch with him and find out what's going on. Thank you all in advance for your support!

Sorry, I have no idea on his whereabouts... :(

Will ask my tailor -- maybe he knows something.

Thanks Dave. If you can imagine I've already paid a deposit of 50% for this order, so it would be a huge loss of money if I can't find him. It would also be a huge loss for Matthew... These kinds of experiences do wonders for the bespoke trade's reputation...

He is at Huntsman but I think not as an Alterations Tailor.
