I have a Harris Tweed coat (‘completely produced in the Outer Hebrides from pure Scottish wool’) that I’m very fond of. My brother, if I recall correctly, bought it off the street in New York. As with many things in our youth, when he tired of it, he passed it on to me. I’ve often wondered how old this coat is, and who owned it before it reached me.
Regardless, the lining is torn to shreds and needs to be replaced. So, I need a tailor. Vancouver readers, search your cerebral databases and find me a skilled tailor who can sort me out. As a bonus, send along any advice you might have for choosing a tailor. Being a post-modern geek myself, I’ve rarely had need of one before.
