The first Rubinacci tailor was Cesare Attolini, who did OK for himself.
Yeah, you know, cue up the Inigo Montoya meme.
I've smacked many a cab, but cannot confirm I've ever actually dented one. Well done.
30 min at 7:30 does not sound unreasonable. at 10:30, should be more like 15-20 max.
The tackiest BH store of all time was Bijan. "By appointment only."
well I don't mean to imply anything nefarious. Frankly, it's useful information for people to have. If the man is over 50, which he appears to be, it's reasonable to ask "So what were doing before you started this business?" Doubtful he just learned to be a tailor this year. Knowing what he's done is relevant to a potential buyer.
It doesn't sound to me like he's advertising it. Obviously, it's in his interest that the fact be widely known, but probably also in his interest that he not be seen as promoting it himself. So he has the rest of us to do it for him. Simply by going through social media channels to organize his first few trips, it seems that he has more or less guaranteed that the word will get around. Which it has.
First of all, he doesn't appear to be using the R name himself. But second, how is that any different than simply telling people your resume? "I used to work at ____." If it's true, how can anyone tell him not to do that?
Yes, but those 11 were one at a time. Maybe the point is, even if you do them one at a time (cash flow, etc.), you are morally obligated to do 11 before you waste the tailor's time?Me, I am more ruthless. I commit only to one; if I like that, we can go from there.
BTW, if he does come to NYC, I am in for one suit. Assuming he will take my cloth. Can't promise more than one, but if I like the one, it's likely, given that Solito may never come back. I can't promise 11, though. If I do get to 11, it might take 11 years. I am surprised we didn't argue about the morality of ordering only one at first and seeing if you like it. Maybe we should argue about that now?
