It's good to see a new, young tailor striking-out on his own. It's a tough business in a competitive market. But everyone had to start somewhere. About the price. Low price is not his selling point. This can be a good thing in that he is not under-pricing himself as did a well-known "Savile Row" tailor.
In the case of technology, the Nikon camera that you buy at Best Buy is the same that you would buy at B & H Camera.In the case of shoes, a retailer might carry stocklist Edward Green or Crockett & Jones. Therefore, one Humphrey 707 on the 999 last is the same from shop to shop. Yes, some retailers merely stick their name on the label although it is the identical shoe being sold elsewhere.However, that high-end retailers and those with custom operations (e.g, Cleverley...
Ask your tailor/clothier. My personal opinion is that lightweight is the key to "coolness" rather than the selection of cloth type. An 8 ounce tropical wool is preferable to a 12 ounce fresco. Fresco is a bit overrated here. One reason is because it has fallen out of favor in the RTW market. It is too rough. I think that a good tropical weight of 8 to 9 ounces will be fine with enough wrinkle resistance. I do not find cotton cooling. This includes seersucker and...
Agreed.He dresses like an adult.
Mr. Fan, please furnish some photos in the daylight. Also, please show the coat buttoned-up.
I cannot comment on Rubinacci.Brioni is a traditional tie with a substantial interlining, tipping, and tie keeper. Its tie keeper is often fancy, such as a gold chain with a Brioni charm in the center.In comparison, the Vanda tie either has no lining or a light one. Also, there is no tipping; the edges are hand sewn. Finally, there is no tie keeper.I would say that the Vanda tie is a lighter construction by reason of no lining or minimal lining.Finally, Vanda is better...
I'll second the excellent opinions on Vanda's customer service and quality.
Nothing wrong with used clothing as long as it looks good. If you want to be fancy, the gussied-up term is "resale" or "vintage." Women have been buying "resale" and "vintage" for years. With the concerns about bedbugs you have to be careful. If you have a reputable resale store in your area, patronize it. In the big cities there are vintage shows. Otherwise, buy from eBay only from reputable dealers. Good luck.
I have had some shirts made when Harris Reiss was one of its salesmen. (He has staked-out on his own.) The shirts were good value. Some were made in Hong Kong and some at one of the Gambert factories in New Jersey. J. Lucas is a MTM outfit. It clothing is made by outside factories and workshops. It has an actual showroom on Madison and 35th Street. It also sells to customers in their homes and offices. It started-out in this manner. I believe that Martin...
I saw Mr. Nicolosi recently on a bus home.He is still working, and he says that he is busy.
