Does that mean anything? Not without seeing the work and materials.

Glad there's nothing missing from the theory, but didn;t see that link before to the gallery, good spot.

None of the seems to have a decent silhouette. His "models" may not be the best for getting a well fitted suit, but the point still remains.

Essentially that description of the process is correct: The style galleries are far from the whole story but will do by way of illustration. One thing is certainly missing in Phuket - a decent tailor.

I agree with that - I'm going to Phuket, and have previously been to other parts of Thailand with a stop off in Bangkok. But I just wanted to spend my time on the beach. With the level of tourism and foot-fall in Patong, Phuket you would have thought a decent tailor would have emerged. it appears not.
