Good to know the history, and see how Flusser aged!

Maybe its just me, but it sounds like Sexton was providing a pretty sub-standard service to his U.S. customers.

Also good to know that some things never change - Nicolosi refused to provided prices but still managed to mention how he tailors for Tom Wolfe.

The 80's ads are entertaining in and of themselves.

For a second I thought it was jamais vu.

I knew John Reyle very well.
He introduced me to numerous clients.
Kid Creole august Darnel)
a plastic baron from columbus ohio
and a big time Nigerian Heroin dealer. I never asked him what he did for a living.
I only found out when I was subpoenaed for his trial.

Dimitry had great style but did not always pay his tailors on time.

Not sure where Garrick Anderson is today. He always had great neckwear

FDR drive was a great little store on a side street in soho. I handled his shirt production for a few seasons. we made them in Alex kabbaz's factory when it was in Connecticut

i'll read through the article again later and see what else i remember
