rebirth of a brand
A story in the New Orleans Times Picayune caught my eye. The Haspel family, creators of the American seersucker suit had re-purchased the rights to their company, and now back in family hands they were recreating their storied past with a new line of American made suits. I had to see this for myself. For the past decade Haspel has made crappy clothes with shoddy material.
Being a hopeful fellow in need of a seersucker suit yet unwilling to pay BB's tariff, I've booked passage to Perlis in NOLA. I figure if there is any hope in their resurrection it must come this year. Uncle Harry invited Mrs. T and I down for the weekend. It would be ungracious not to accept, besides I'm hungry. See you Monday.
