It does not seem like I met with Thomas Mahon of English Cut just yesterday morning, but that might have something to do with the midnight flight I took to New York some hours later, and the resulting zombie state of mind that was mine on Wednesday. Lack of sleep will do that to a fellow, particularly when he is meeting four tailors in five days.
Thomas made what we hope are final adjustments on the mid-gray fresco double breasted that was fitted in the fall. The collar needed work and, rather inexplicably, there were no vents in what was supposed to be a side vented jacket. But all will be made well and hopefully before the end of warm weather.
I am still learning the timing of ordering from Thomas. There doesn't seem to be any need to order when he is in town, as he won't be cutting cloth until not terribly long before his visit following this one. And any items ordered with the intention of fitting at that visit are unlikely to be completed until some months afterwards. So where I had been ordering spring cloth in the fall and fall cloth in the spring, I have shifted to ordering fall cloth in the fall and spring cloth in the spring in the hope that the finished clothes will arrive in time for their intended season.
If that makes no sense blame it on lack of sleep.
