    Since this thread started with the subject of mythbusting, I'd like to do a little summary: [​IMG]

    10. Speaking of beautiful people: A fine chest needs no drape!

    Feel free to add anything I have not covered.


    That's sweet of you, but I still like a bit of drape in a jacket.

    Actually, there is nothing wrong with a "little" drape.
    Maybe we can agree on: A fine chest can take a "little" drape! [​IMG]
    Question: Did Edwin DeBoise ever explain the differences between his cut and that of actual A&S and alike? As far as I know he was not an apprentice at A&S like the others? I guess he has a more profound tailoring and cutting background...
    Your coats look a bit leaner than those of the others...

    I regret not being around to prevent Le Bannage du Wabbit.

    When I'm not around, this place lurches into Lord of the Flies mode. As a descendant of cannibals, I think that I could have helped.

    So, what's jefferyd gonna cut up next? Jos. A Bank?

    I don't make death threats.

    You will struggle on Style Forum.

    Passive agressive behaviour are part of Style forum's social etiquette.

    I'm afraid farting in your general direction is about as coarse as I get.

    That would be unnecessary roughness.
