Cifonelli and Huntsman
I haven't had it made yet. Can't decide which of my two tailors I will ask to make it. It was expensive. I think around $150/meter.
^their agent would be isles textiles. I think I got the last few meters of the 009 that isles had, but it's worth checking. Maybe they got more.
^i think those anniversary tweeds are long gone. They 009 went particularly quickly and was tough to track down. Check the Harrison's website and call the agent in your area to see what they have left.
In New York City I have literally never seen them being worn in any context. I love them and constantly consider buying a pair, but I just don't know when I would use them. I think at some point I will probably do it but it will be a shoe that I wear with jeans on a weekend.
But again, those don't have to be the only choices you make as a customer. If you were using Davide Taub, or someone else who wants customers to be expressive, you'd be making other choices and you might feel very differently about the tailor's role in personal style.
That makes total sense to me. I think people often forget that bespoke is a stylistic choice. Do you like what is being offered as a stylistic matter and think "that is what I want to look like". I think I'd have a hard time paying rubinacci prices without meeting the person who is actually cutting my suit, but I assume one could remedy that with a visit to Naples.
Not sure it will work on a mobile device, but these are the ones on the website: http://www.cifonelli.com/product-category/creations/ Here are some of the ones that aren't on the site: http://parisiangentleman.co.uk/2012/08/31/cifonelli-contemporary-bespoke/ And here are some others that I don't believe are on the website: http://parisiangentleman.co.uk/2012/11/20/new-cifonelli-designs/
^not right. Take a look at their site and their creations and then you will get it. It's not 1 button vs 2 button. It's five buttons with an unnotched lapel and bellows pockets versus completely unlined and unstructured sweater jacket. I am talking about drastic stylistic differences and innovative forms that aren't done elsewhere.
I don't think house style is necessarily inconsistent with the concept of developing a personal style and I think you can find tailors who seek to instill personal style honestly. Cifonelli is a good example. There are at least 30 different named models that one can select, and unlimited variations that one can apply to any of those models. Some of those models are the result of specific customer requests for a particular garment, others are developed by Lorenzo. They all...
