The suiting thread

Sack suit. No front darts. Natural, most probably unpadded shoulders. Cut very early to mid 1920s style imho. Does not really suit the wearer's physique is the issue. But then again...it is very retro in look but should be super comfy to wear.

Maybe he has a very short mid section? Thus the really short looking jacket. Or as Riggy has said 1920s style. That, or his trousers doubles as a belly warmer.

 

This was taken from dressedwell.net's disagreeable thread? That thread seems to mock stuffs which look alright to me. Full of poison there...

There is no point talking about he suit until the wearer is whacked into a proper posture. His parents should have whacked him into a better posture when he was younger but many people grow up in broken households. Should also be whacked on the head to correct the face.

Previously I wrote about the presence of Japanese tailors and textile manufacturers in Vietnam. http://thekerbau.com/index.php?/topic/7-the-suiting-thread/page-305&do=findComment&comment=30114

I just read another article about a Kyoto-based kimono manufacturer now produces kimonos, in part at least, in Cambodia. http://ajw.asahi.com/article/cool_japan/style/AJ201504110021

Another article describes how stores are trying to stock more affordable kimonos to buck a trend of declining popularity amongst kimono wearers. Implies that fabrics will be sourced from cheaper mills and textiles to be manufacturer in places like Vietnam and Cambodia where the labour costs are low rung. Last year, I remembered Uniqlo rolled out low-cost yukata in its stores http://www.uniqlo.com/yukata/sg/.

I keep trying to figure out how to use kimono fabric in my garments -- as an accent since they come in relatively small pieces -- but could find no compelling idea. The stuff is very attractive.

 

 

You can use it as jacket lining for the next Pitti.

A few years back, I reported in this thread that a hedge fund owner bought over Huntsman, who then had his male partner, formerly a womens couturier, run it. In a recent article in The Rake, there was no mention of Roubi L'Roubi, the partner in question.

So I dug around and found that they have split.

Huntman's workroom in the basement of the shop. Huntsman is very opulent upstairs, but downstairs it looks like any other coatmaking workshop. This is just a baste-making room -- the actual sewing takes place elsewhere. You can tell fom the lack of sewing machines and of cones of thread.
