In a testament to hand tailoring, Luke’s shirt has withstood over a year of Bringing The Rock to The Rock-Starved Masses. Including multiple instances of pyrotechnics and crowd surfing.
There’s no secret to making something that lasts. Last winter, The Nil came on Y108 when I was up late working on organic flannel pajamas for another client, the lovely 98 yr old Spanish Pepita. I put exactly the same ideas into them as Luke’s shirt. Sewing on century old machines. Searching for the best materials. Ensuring washability. It’s the result of dedication to accumulating and using arcane skills and knowledge, and somewhat coincidentally becoming allergic to almost everything along the way.
Fate has something to say about staying true to your principles.
