Blurbs from my boss's The Territory Ahead catalog:
"The poplin has a crisp canvas-like hand that's nicely broken in and already fade-savvy by a good old-fashioned garment wash". A nicely broken-in hand? Ouch!
"deep piped besom pockets"
"... then garnished the placket, neckline and side vents with fine twill backing".
"With a boat neck and godets front and back ..."
"Trapunto topstitching accents the angled patch pockets".
Gah. Pretentious bastards. Or maybe I'm just confused, since I have no idea what the hell they are talking about. Maybe they're really discussing molecular physics, and I'm just out of the loop, vocabulary-wise.
Nope. Pretentious bastards it is.
