Yes. Here is my report for PG: In French: http://parisiangentleman.fr/2014/12/05/visite-du-premier-salon-de-lhomme-a-paris/ In English: http://parisiangentleman.co.uk/2014/12/05/a-visit-to-the-parisian-exhibition-le-salon-de-lhomme/
Well, the new collection is closer to Cifo bespoke, but also more expensive than their previous RTW, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.Here is the pic of Guy in Cifo bespoke at the RTW shop:
It is going on all weekend at Palais de Tokyo in the 16th arrondissement.
Just returned from the opening party of the first ever Paris Pitti (Salon de l'Homme), here are some exclusive pics: http://dirnelli.tumblr.com/search/Cifonelli
I do hope this makes me some kind of new SF record holder...Follow my tumblr selfies in the coming months to watch the haul unfold before your very eyes.
I will keep the story to myself if you don't mind as it is perhaps the motherlode of all grailfinds in the history of grailfinds. I now own some 30 Camps suits and blazers.My buddy @SeamasterLux is pushing me to wear nothing else henceforth. But since I'm not one to eat chocolate everyday for desert, I will include them in a rotation with the rest of my plethoric warbrobe, among even my fused cheapies. I'm a pretty open minded guy, I know.
As I mentionned, I am no jet-setter, so I have only one Camps made for me, the gray S180's 2 button with higher notch, which I commissioned 3 years ago at a time when I weighed 20 kg. more than today. We altered it down 2 full suit sizes, with more or less success. All the others you see (and many more to come) are from the estate of a longtime Camps customer who was closer to my current size and who recently passed away. Hence some of the 3 button closures which are quite...
I am not a jet-setter unfortunately. However, I do have a nice collection of Camps de Luca suits, visible on my blog with this keyword search:http://dirnelli.tumblr.com/search/Camps+de+luca
Jean Rotin bespoke in Marseille, 800€ CMT, a bargain. http://dirnelli.tumblr.com/post/103792711355/this-is-the-all-time-absolute-best-french-bespoke
OK I will grant you that it may never catch on. Probably good news at the end if the day -- who wants to be wearing the same suit as the next guy.Looks like RTW? Nope. You need to see IRL. Shoulders, chest, details, etc. Nothing looks less like RTW than French bespoke. But I guess that doesn't come accross in pics. (So back to point 1 re not catching on.)Re fabrics: you are not looking at enough Cifo pics -- those guys are way striking/dandified in their fabric choices....
