    Dont make me do Hadouken!

    A videogame featuring bespoke tailors as characters could be a big success.

    "Watch out! It's Boateng and his fusing machine!!"

    "Oh no! Westmancott has rung up £45,000 in one, deft move!"

    "Here comes Ambrosi...he's activating his twelve button fly!!"

    You get the picture. I'm thinking maybe Wii, so you can use that wand thing for chopping motions.

    Is Pierre Cardin on the list? How about John Weitz or Giorgio di Sant'Angelo? We also need John Blair Collection, Irvine Park and Botany 500. "Mr Sajak's wardrobe by... BOTANY 500..."

    I have a great Botany 500 coat from the '60s that is both fully canvassed and cost me less than $20. Therefore, I am putting it in the top tier. That's value, I tell you!

    Do you think we need to distinguish between Botany 500 and Botany 500 tailored by Daroff?

    I'm thinking we do, though I'm not sure if there's a difference.

    Why can't RLBL be at the same level? You mention RLPL. Many of those suits are made by Caruso, who made a lot of Black Fleece as well as RLBL. So why would RLPL necessarily be above those other brands? Is there something I'm missing?

    I can understand if we are breaking it down to years of models and even seasons, since Black Fleece has undergone a lot of change (i.e. from made in Italy to the USA) as well as others. But what necessarily makes RLBL inferior or superior to BB Golden Fleece?

    I'd rank BB Black Fleece from 2007 above Golden Fleece (in terms of quality) but I can only bump one notch per day :wink:


    RL Black Label fabrics aren't as nice as Golden Fleece and often charged a high premium for its modern cut.

    This is, quite possibly, one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard. It's really growing on me.

    I'm thinking, "Zombie Attack!: Savile Row"

    Players choose to play as one of several different Savile Row tailoring firms. You and your doughty band of cutters, finishers and trotters must defeat a horde of zombies invading the row dressed in ill-fitting black suits from Aldi and Tesco by stabbing them with your scissors and strangling them with your tapes. Score bonus points by dressing a zombie in one of your bespoke suits and turning him into a customer! After defeating the zombie horde, the ultimate challenge awaits -- the boss zombie dressed in a track suit and a Burberry cap.

    Anyone here know a flash programmer willing to work for SFvm leftovers?

    Admission: With the exception of Pong ... I have never -- not once -- played a video game. This is totally over my head.

    You would like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. You get to jack cars, shoot the po-lice, pick up hookers, then murder them to get your money back.
