    Just words to think about ebefore I comback and solely address you and siituation. Have you hever felt the need alter a piece of art regardlesss of what typr or era it was or was from u cuz u liked most of it one mpart you wante to look otherwise You are the next person in line. And I promise every question could everything or to WWll be not only be adressed but articulate in a mannerr that in a way that will makeit all work togehter and make sense and that'll to be that. Takening a epsok suit from a certain era from a wpecific tailorl, and you decicided make to it and an balance the orophtions on the think to mirrior a Zaracket you've taenan iconic piece of ashion hsitorym, and the perclhlyiunccwwr tion sthat htye the wau ysuit,n ton something that would be worth that just trackingAd where are strictly discussion the alteration propertiesn theif refernfoienrcess, and what types of suits are ber or easher to balert bespoke or Uspekticn tce.

    ^@Jompso , listen to this man. A lot of us are getting very worried about you, these latest posts are going well past your regular long, mostly-coherent stream-of-consciousness posts. Find someone you trust and get them to come to you.

    Synergy for Row trained tailors! For big jobs I use a Hawkes trained one, before the merger. His family ran it for a bit :) the amount of stories and high people he met were endless. I'll no doubt take the 3 piece to him if I can. He can do anything, I swear.

    I'm getting it tailored and altered regardless of the mumbling posts ;) I want to rock this shit in the office. :slayer:

    Is it art? Or is well made clothing, IMHO, made originally to be passed from generation to generation and altered accordingly.

    I'll leave it there in case the others are right in their assessment of the situation. But I see a bully who types too fast.

    We may not get much in the way of thrifted Savile Row clothes (it gets worn till it falls apart generally - my dad does this, buys quality but wears it to death) but we do get the tailors.

    Wow! Who keeps clothing that long (obviously passing it down a generation or two) and then donates it?

    no makers stamp or anything at all.
    anyone seen one before or recognise the maker? think it's a fruit bowl but hopefully something Danish and cool and not woolworths 1978 or ikea 2015.
