Spring Spring Spring Spring Spring, there really is no comparing the two. Go spring and you won't have to buy another suit for at least 5 years if it's made right.

I know for a fact that Jeff Hedgecock does some stunning work and now he has Luke Binks will be producing a lot more.

Each style didn't really seperately evolve they simultaneously developed in a few countries at a time. The term German gothic is something of a Victorianisation of the style, high German is probably more accurate. The angled and heavily fluted high German style that we are familiar with has its root...

The actual origins are something i didn't know, i was (wrongly) working on the assumption that because a good portion of the collection is Italian they were. The collection does hint at the tastes of an Italian family of the end of the later middle ages early rennaisance.
