    He's one of the most knowledgeable posters here, but also, I hear, an incredible tailor. So I think he deserves his own thread.

    Sadly, other than my admiration and desire, I have nothing else to share. So please post pics of your Despos-es. Quotes of your favorite posts from big D are also welcome.

    He's not as old as he looks in photographs.

    Thanks for the call out Slew. I am the proud wearer of 20, give or take a few, Despos creations with several more being made up.

    I have given up posting photos of my clothing (and shoes) as the line between honest, well-informed critique and rancorous bile has been forever blurred on SF. I do, however, think the world of Chris and consider him a friend who also happens to be my tailor.

    I am indeed lucky on both accounts.

    That is indeed a crying shame as some of us relative newcomers look and learn from the likes of your goodself !! [​IMG]
