A New Tailor, or, Do Not Feed The Peacock

Penned upon the 18th of December, 2006

This week saw your subtly violet-clad editor undertake that most thrilling of adventures, the visit to a brand-new tailor. Adriano Carbone of Elizabeth St, Colonial Capital MELBOURNE, was consulted, and found to be as charming and knowledgable an aesthetismith as you could hope to meet. Adriano and Maria were happy to take their time to help us find just the right fabric for just the right suit (a 13 oz. dark grey with red windowpane check double-breasted suit with a deep red corduroy waistcoat, all lined in burgundy.) With all measurements taken, now comes the eager anticipation!

    I enjoy how Mr.Carbone’s sign doesn’t skirt around the point. He’s a Mastor Tailor and there’s little doubt to be had.

    No nonsense regarding Lifestyle Co-ordinancy or Importation of Locally-Made Cufflink Polishers – when you visit, you will be tailored, by a master!
