If you might happen to come upon this book,
Dandy in the Underworld, an Unauthorised Autobiography, by Sebastian Horsley, artist, writer and failed suicide,
I tell you it's most entertaining, quite dreadful and worth reading for his adventures at the tailors and to find these comforting words on page 315;
"Producing art is essentially conservative. Unconventionality can be convention within a certain set. It would have been more radical if I had taken up knitting."
Thank you Sebastian Horsley.
