I see similarities between Foot and Corbyn. Both are old school Labour whether you like that or not. Corbyn is far less doddery though.

I don't, based on the Malvinas question. Foot, 100% behind Thatcher for the war and liberation of the Falkland Islands, could we say the same for Corbyn? I doubt it.

Similar ages when leader of Labour Party. However, Foot was already decrepit, half blind and prone to rambling speechs. So Corbyn has the better of him on that comparison. Foot was an embarrassment whereas Corbyn - to his surprise - has a fan club.

Here's a bit of gossip:


Seems Hitchcock Jr. was a bit of an a-hole when he was still at his old address.
"Rumour" has it that he thought of himself to be more important than the other tailors in the same place, demanding preferential treatment when it came to using the fitting room.
Eventually the other tailors had enough of that and kicked him out. Now he's back to where he started.
Funny enough: On Google maps you can still see his old company sign at No. 13 Savile Row.

our Doll S a rto might retire from business, check his last 3 post on the other place.

How can I do a pool poll to ask if he should retire or continue? Please post your thoughts, or he has been hacked and some other is posting his post, or he seems another.

am i the only one that found this creepy as fuck? stop whispering at me bitch.
Missed this one when it was current. Good Lord, that chick comes across like she is working in a high dollar erotic massage joint rather than a tailoring establishment.

Really? Will this affect the SF resale market?
All those high street retailers are in rapid decline and cannot compete against online and the outlet villages. From the States to Europe it's the same terminal affliction. I see in the center of the Hague they are now replacing stores with residential and restaurants where the shops use to be. I see this trend as continuing, but the problem is lack of car park space. The demographic who's looking for an expensive apartment or town building in a pedestrian area with zero parking space must quite small.

I think Barney's filed for Bankruptcy due to rising in rent and inability to restructure the contract.

Barney's does have some good exclusive pieces. I hope there is liquidation sale coming soon.

Barney's does promote new designers as well for the mass population, so I hope this is not the end for them
