Dear Folks: Guerre, the Brooklyn-based SWAGGER 360 blogger, styled a person who approached him for a makeover. Guerre writes, "I decided to take him to one of the places I consider a hidden gem for bespoke clothing." Results are pretty good, IMO. Not sure if they are entirely finished with the arms of the brown suit. I do like the denim details, tho'. The pix show the tailor fitting the client. Who is he?

Have met him at least 10 times, can't think of his name. He used to be at Paul Stuart in NY and a few other places. Last I saw him he was at Beckenstien's on 39th St. Operating their MTM operation.

Yeah, he's a nice guy. Was at Paul Stuart for a while. He's a bit flashier than most here would prefer.

He looked familiar, but I don't know him
I was looking at an enlarge photo with the cutting ticket.

all I could tell was that he bites his finger nails
