I would describe their current bespoke as offered to US customers as ok at best. John Butcher doesn't travel, so if you aren't visiting budd in London he isn't cutting your shirt. Darren Tiernan has rejoined budd, and if you see budd in the states you want to be sure that Darren is your cutter.
^well, we wouldn't have to go to Florence to see the clothes if there were better pictures. As it stands, I can't see a single item of clothing with the homeless gentlemen blocking the entry.
I like the look but the erection is supposed to appear in the front.
I am not sure agree with your premise dopey but if you have a picture of this goth ninja please post it in the "20 thumbs" thread and we can see if the experts really think it's comical or if everyone haz 2 kop.
^he isn't saying that it doesn't fit. In fact he says the opposite in post 19. Take a look. And I'm not saying the jacket looks funny. I'm saying it looks funny in the context of a forum dedicated to classical menswear. As in strange or difficult to explain. If someone wants to defend it as classical menswear I would be interested to hear it, but so far the people with knowledge of the garment seem to be saying that is intended to reject and be different from classical...
I think in a forum dedicated to classic menswear the natural reaction is that the jacket looks funny. I'm sure there are many posters who are interested on that type of clothing, but CM and SW&D seem to remain pretty true to their respective topics. I assume the post was intended to facilitate discussion, but it's a little like preaching atheism at a Catholic Church.
My understanding is that only Massimo and Lorenzo cut the suits.
^at the boutiques they have iPads with the by request/bespoke models, so if you are close to one that is the best way.
Totally possible but i can tell you now after going down the road with other shoemakers cleverley's process doesn't lend itself to getting a perfect fit nearly as much as G&G or Lobb.
The most interesting part of the article to me was Lorenzo Cifonelli stating that developing a RTW line was the only way for the business to grow. I wonder if they are effectively at capacity for customers. Their turnaround time is remarkable, but when you only have two cutters there is simply a limit on what can be produced.
