you're BLOWING MY MIND, actually, Mr Greger.
you tailors see things in the entire UNIVERSE differently: you see BEHIND "man behind the curtain" as YOU MAKE HIS SUIT and the wishy washiness. i say this because as co-creator, the tailor gives ROOM for this change evolution or specificity... which is what makes a person more of who they..."become"?
i'm an art chick, so forgive the constant philosophizing but it's how i back into this vision as it emerges, not as i make it. so you say/write the same thing. about the room the INLAYS to change the sculpture, because regarding drape/zoot suit pant swagger (oxford bells were just GOOFY, all same size like that), regarding that SWAGGER, a man has to feel he can carry that look outside into the world of theatre.
and zoot suit pant drape... yes, you are correct: start with the basic before going all out with the drama. different men will be able to carry different amounts of drama another will look clownish and need straight.
and i thought i'd have to drape each customer anew to see where the lines would go but if i have inlays ... oh you make me SWOON because you have inadvertantly helped to define my entire house look that i need to be able to rely on word-of-mouth and avoid online to build up ...the art of SEDUCTION to whisper and succeed in a technical dystopian capitalist rentier feudal world where we must re-create old arts within the cracks. our specialty!
i laugh, too. but i stopped at the flip phone that i never turn on and i'm going back to the 1980s when you had to go down scary dark alleys on your own to find something interesting and worth the journey; not some click of a button and you can just BUY the "experience." i want to do something you cannot get anywhere. i cannot exist in THEIR world. i quit.
but we've all got rent to pay so i've got a gorgeous former pro athlete and his coterie of hard-to-fit wealthy pro athlete and business friends to fit. and THEY are the ones who seemed to choose this zoot suit drape pant when i tried to see what THEY wanted. something special underground and not had by everyone or even anyone. so i'm going back to the original REASONS for the zoot suit but trying to twist it for ..NOW.
i'm going back to the split fishmouth waist (all one-piece/no waistband) in the back to use the bias to cover and smooth around the dramatic small of the back (they DIG showing the smalls of their lower backs like you wouldn't BELIEVE) and for coverage when they lift up high which they do, so i need the drape to come from your inlay epiphany. it's PERFECT. and if i mess with pin stripe, cross grain inlays could make me swoon. may be too feminine. i have to be gentle. i have drag queen tendencies of my own that i live in full bloom.
