The Anatomy of a Suit, Plus Gimp

The Anatomy of a Suit is an exhibit now showing at the London Museum and apparently dissects suits, some historical, to show the innards.  While they sadly did not appear to proof their material, it would still be an interesting thing to see.  Running until June 2014

Also, a reader points out a new source for Agreman gimp, my gimp of choice for hand made buttonholes. This can be bought at WAWAK sewing supplies.

Thanks to David and Nula for pointing these out.

Are there inaccuracies?

That's Tim Long. He was the curator over at the Chicago History Museum. I went to London to get his masters and then went to McQueen to archive the work when McQueen died.
Looks like a fun exhibit.
