Thanks for posting kuro. I just read it. I never realized camps was so much more expensive than cifo. Interesting to read about cifo's ready to wear plans, and of course they have pictures of the qilian jacket in yak wool, which I'm hoping to have the bravery to order when Lorenzo visits in a few weeks.
Yeah, it would be quite remarkable to do that. I can't imagine what the stingray looks like under that type of pressure. G&G tried to gently dissuade me from hatchgrain whole cuts because of the distortion to the hatch grain that results from the stretching.
That looks terribly uncomfortable. I think there are plenty of ready to wear brands that offer shirts intended to replicate the darted look. "Slim fit" is a dead giveaway. But good luck.

Thanks. I can probably dig some up.
I don't think it is a shapeless sack but Svenn can be the judge. Here is one. Happy to post pics of others if people are truly interested:
Dopey - I'm not sure your premise is correct. I've posted lots of pics of myself in Huntsman (as well as Cifonelli).
Gianni isn't a post count spammer. When you meet him in person you see that is just incredibly passionate about the things people discuss on this board. When I was in milano Gianni was incredibly generous with his time. He just likes talking about style and he enjoys discussion. I too sometime find his posts lacking in substance, but they don't lack in sincerity.
I think the history of Savile Row is littered with places coming and going and the "big names" now are not necessarily the shops that were "big names" in the past. Places come and go and tailors don't last forever. You can no longer find a suit by Pleydell & Smith or Carr, Son and Woor. You can't find a suit from Hawes & Curtis. And Huntsman, 80 years ago, might have been known for riding breeches but I'm not sure that they held real suit cache pre-Colin Hammick and...
