    The Japanese and Koreans are both barbarians, silly.

    So are Manchus.

    Have you seen a China man at the dinner table?

    I used to assume that the Commies stole Chinese culture from the Chinese.

    But then, I met people from Taiwan.

    So, that theory went out the window.

    I can see you being a bad influence on here.

    I shall have to start canvassing for a ban.

    By PM of course.


    george, kindly demonstrate to me what a fully-canvassed ban looks like, as my feeble brain won't otherwise be able to grasp it.

    in the spirit of this thread, please try and be as precise, nuanced and constructive as jeffery and despos.

    thank you very much.

    This is a good point in this thread to introduce the word, "kimchi." This word is actually an acronym for the Japanese sentence, "Get a breath mint, you barbarian."

    I hope that A-E will one day introduce Kimchi as a color option. Also, I had a kimchi quesadilla this weekend. It was excellent.

    If you have a misbehaving dog, hire a Korean gardener.

    Works every time.

    Is it ever mentioned in this thread...

    1. What are Despos' starting prices?

    2. How may weeks to complete?

    3. Can he do Neapolitan shoulders (pad-less with pleats in upper sleeve) or very high fitted armscyes? Or does he have a strict house style?

    4. Finally, and most perplexing of all, is he in Dallas or Chicago?!

    Will PM you info.

    Have a store in Chicago, spend most of the time in Chicago. Have a workroom in Dallas and visit Dallas for a couple days every 2 or 3 weeks. Spend a day in N Y every 4 to 6 weeks.
