    Unbelievable.

    You really do know the meaning of the word hyperbole don't you?


    The clothing interwebs are full of anonymous people who like to trash merchants anonymously with little or no evidence and often made up crap. Like I said, if you want to peddle sleaze, that is really up to you. It's up to the rest of us with actual experience with the firms you are trashing to speak up if we want to.

    I think you'll find he likes both. He wrote an essay about Lessers as I recall.

    Harrisons tends to have a more contemporary finish to it than does Lessers.

    Both merchants are excellent, but my own personnel favourite is Minnis.

    Why does Lessers have such a hegemony on the Row. One could be cynical and suggest...[​IMG]



    FNB likes Lesser cloth, except in a thread where Manton likes it, then FNB says he dislikes it. Then he posts KISS photo.

    Nobody, is trashing anybody. I think you're being a little over-sensitive. Like I said, I like Lessers. Oh, by the way, I have a lot of experience throughout the supply chain.

    He is quite confusing and confused at the same time our FNB....

    What about his obsession with Alice in wonderland and these frigging rabbits?

    Look, can we all agree that we hate hopsack?

    It's such an un-Norman cloth...too Laconic (see, I capitalized Laconic so that everyone knows that I mean Lacedaemonian but with fewer letters.)

    Well, I've not read that. I was always under the impression that he liked or appreciated it's qualities but preferred Harrisons for it's more contemporary finish. I've no wish to get involved with the Manton v's FNB saga.

    You could be soon starting your own saga George vs Manton ...[​IMG]

    To change subject , why H&s and Fox are so under-represented?
