They were. In fact, there's one from that era on eBay right now.I am under the impression that the goods Flusser made for Saks in those days were very good in quality, ...
The 4 on 2 sport coat show above looks quite classic to me. My father's Alan Flusser for SFA blazer is a DB 4 on 1 with a low gorge that has quite the 1980's look to it. My father's is not classic. But look at Mimmo Spano's suits. They are in the classic style from the 1930's. While I'm sure most of us here like the 1930's suits, they do look just a little dated. They have a slightly lower gorge and baggier trousers. And that came back in the 80's. Throughout the life of the suits what changes are the lapel width, gorge heigh, button stance, pant leg width, popularity of pleats, and (now) trouser rise. Classic proportions always hold true, and that's what Flusser writes in his books. He writes about how to achieve classic proportions. Whether or not he adheres to those principles is beyond my knowledge.This thread brings up the interesting notion as to whether Flusser's notions of classic tailoring are truly classic and ageless ...or classic through the prism of the age in whcih we live?
Classic and ageless are different things.This thread brings up the interesting notion as to whether Flusser's notions of classic tailoring are truly classic and ageless ...or classic through the prism of the age in whcih we live?
Yes, I saw this one too. I like the cut, but am not too big a fan of houndstooth. I have a very similar houndstooth blazer that I rarely wear. I prefer the window-pane fabric and yet have to add one to my wardrobe.The lapels have too much belly, IMO.
How about this auction:
And if you can tear yourself away from looking at the clothes, the center window has a fantastic view down the Channel Gardens toward the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree...I agree with others, Flusser used to be at Saks in the space now occupied by Mimmo Spano.
