Timothy Everest, Not Really A Stumble Upon
A remark I made on an online forum for tailors, in which I was fairly abrasive in my opinion that tailors are conduits for a customers ideas, sparked an uproar from a number of tailors. One of those that would not lie down and take it, accused me of being a nobody and equated a good tailor with a good surgeon and remarked that a patient would never tell a surgeon how to operate. I am not sure if I agree with this statement entirely and I tried to point out a few dinosaur tailors in Sydney who, though having great skills, had very few customers since they still crafted very well made suits that unfortunately still looked like sacks of potatoes on their clients because they refused to make suits 'a la mode'. In the process of all this arguing in a forum environment, which resembles a digital Athenian plaka, this certain tailor mentioned Timothy Everest's camouflage suit in passing. What a pleasure it was to get something so positive out of an argument. I have posted some of Timothy's work below.
