    When it's all over and the dust has settled on the bespoke clothing world Bill is going to make Charles Foster Kane look like a sensible human being.

    My main folly right now is architectural, so you might be on to something.

    Charles Foster Kane: Are we going to declare war on Spain, or are we not?

    Jed Leland: The Inquirer already has.

    Charles Foster Kane: [jokingly] You long-faced, overdressed anarchist!

    Jed Leland: I am NOT overdressed!

    Charles Foster Kane: You are too! Mr. Bernstein, look at his necktie!

    Thompson: Everybody knows that story, Mr. Leland. But why did he do it? How could a man write a notice like that?

    Leland: You just don't know Charlie. He thought that by finishing that notice he could show me he was an honest man. He was always trying to prove something. The whole thing about Mina being a tailor, that was trying to prove something. You know what the headline was the day before her trip to New York, "Bespeaker Kane found in love nest with quote, tailor, unquote." He was gonna take the quotes off the tailor.

    That seems rather an odd way around of doing a fitting, doesn't it?

    Are we talkin' Richard Meier/Portzamparc? Or more neoclassical/Beaux-Arts McKim, Mead & White?

    No, more Gothic! - More "stately pleasure dome", I presume.

    I suspect Vox's newest batch of sportcoats were made from the Barbera for Lesser that kolecho was selling on B&S sometime ago.

    If anyone is still interested. My father was a tailor for Society Brand in Chicago and these are patch pocket patterns they used in the 40"s and 50's. They are a bit similar to Corbera's breast patch. When the factory closed, all the patterns seemed to disappear and magically reappear at tailors workshops. I have their block patterns too.
