Registration [free] may be required. "Men of the Cloth," by Horacio Silva If you click on a link on the right, you will see a picture of the actual designers wearing their own garments. Note how the picture sugests that they are tailors (I'm not sure which of them actually are, whether they have trained to be or not) by posing one with a pair of shears. The article is in the paper tomorrow. But we can begin our critique today. For example, what's with Thom Browne's highwaters?
