Having seen the dress uniforms/Blues/No1s worn by United States servicemen to the number10 barbie I regretfully must assume that the art of tailoring has died out in the US. As have natural fibres and the ability to shape a beret. Hopefully our American friends can be dragged down to visit the tailor/ess whilst in the UK. Maybe we can start a charity, ?"Help fo Herberts", to help introduce the colonials to the joy of well fitted garments? Or were they just all expecting to put on about 50pounds at the feast?
