I think $7200 puts them at the top of the market. Camps de Luca might be there. Fioravanti as well, but I can't think of anyone else. I've never seen one in person, but the pictures strike me as beautiful and unique enough to play in that space. I don't think it would look good on me, but if I loved it is certainly be willing to pay a premium to get it 4 blocks away as opposed to flying to Florence. Just like Koji Suzuki. However, if they do the Neapolitan thing and charge...
Charvet full mesure starts at 400E. T&R price goes up based on the price of fabric. So about the same amount as kiton off the rack. I will happily post a fit pick of my charvet. Let's see one of your kiton as well.
Two steed full bespoke jackets, each in London Lounge cloth (one is called the Agnelli flannel and the other was air force blue flannel). Very gently worn (2 or 3 times each). Measurements: Sleeves: 24 inches Back of neck to bottom: 31 inches Pit to pit: 20 inches. Happy to take additional measurements or let you try them on in NYC and do local pickup. will x out my name before delivering them to you. $650 each plus shipping. I will ship exactly as you request, but...
That isn't what I see. People buy ambrosi trousers. People order chick-fil-a. I think I have over 100 bottles of de montille burgundies in my cellar and he praised the 9/11 terrorists. It's easier to buy from people you like, but people purchase products, not the people behind them.
Ok. I wouldn't think of that as a "personal relationship" but of course being able to say what you like is an important part of being happy. I think if you asked a tailor whether it was necessary for him to have a personal relationship with the client to make that client a good suit, he would probably look at you like you were crazy. I have two tailors, one of whom I do have dinner with and the other with whom I struggle to communicate. On both cases I express some...
Relax. No one's bashing you. We are both expressing points of view.
I take the quote to refer to the end product rather than the experience. Successful tailoring he sounds like a good suit. If it's about having a good experience then everyone is of course going to define that subjectively.
This is the kind of thing that only a participant on an Internet forum could say. These high end bespoke tailors are dressing heads of state and incredibly wealthy people whose interaction outside of tailoring consists of having someone else hand over a credit card on their behalf. Pleasantries nights be exchanged, but a personal relationship? Please. And they come out looking great. You don't have to walk in and show your styleforum credentials to get a great suit. You...
It means that the tailor has a series of paper patters that are laid on the cloth and then adjusted to account for measurements, as opposed to creating an entirely new paper pattern. I would hope that once the adjustments are made the new pattern is retained or else a lot would be lost, but I'm agreeing with you that you can end up in the same place. I would have thought that using the de novo pattern would be a closer starting point for the first fitting and would require...
I suppose that as long as the block pattern can be altered as much as one from scratch, then the difference can be reduced to the point that it no longer matters. I would have thought that starting from a set of measurements would be a better starting point as opposed to a block simply because the measurements will be closer, but if that block can be altered to get to the right point then the differences are greatly reduced.
