I love their slim fitting, fine merino and sea island cotton sweaters. I have few of their polo as well, and while I like them, being knitted fabric, they wear differently than other polos
it is not the same. The shirts will affect how the jacket fits. Once you get your shirts made, cuff lenght, sleeve width, collar height can all be proportioned together. Most Italian makers have no min orders, and once you can afford bespoke suit/jacket, getting the right shirts first makes absolute sense. A common problem in RTW shirts for people that have a slight forward stance is a bulging of fabric at the base of the collar behind the neck.Shirts are not an...
Completely disagree with the below, and if you take the jacket off like in most western offices, the shirt will show a lot more than you may plan. I think bespoke shirt are really important before passing onto bespoke suit/jackets as the high armhole, and collar will need to have suitable proportioned shirts.
Thanks both. Once again Bengal, I really appreciate your help and pointers. The last will need probably small adjustments. Once I wear these shoes for few weeks I'll check with Steven to see what he suggest. I will eventually want to replace by 10 pairs of Formal shoes and also get some balmoral oxfords, cricket shoes (a copy from a picture of my great grandfather), monks and few loafers and slippers.
Collected today in Naples. I was worried as they looked slimmer then my RTW ... But the volume is in the right place, over the instep. I never had an Oxford fitting so comfortably from the very first wear, and I know now what the "hugging the heel" with comfort means

I do but I am not allowed to published them online as when you book the appointment they make you sign a legal binding document...Is this one:http://www.vam.ac.uk/users/node/3508It has the same slanted under arm dart I have observed in person on this other one (I know it is a DB but virtually same construction in the shoulders as well):http://tweedlandthegentlemansclub.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/today-at-kerry-taylor-auctions-duke-of.htmlEdit: as far as I know Fosters were the...
Hi Carpu,I did not mean "cartamodello", but reverse engineer, so starting with a finished jacket and creating a model. Any tailor would be able to do that. During fitting they would be able to make it fit.It is clear for what I have seen at the V&A with a jacket made from a london/Bahamas outfitter that also offer custom tailoring, and I doubt it very much they had a Scholte cutter
Hi Carpu, I understand the theories but I have seen in person the Greeen Tartan Dinner Suit (Lord of Isles) when it last went to auction in London (made and attributed to Scholte) and also a Tweed Suit at the V&A museum, cut by tailors in the Bahamas but with the exactly the same pattern as Scholte. The Pieces of the NYC museum are also clearly labelled Harris inside the Jackets (not only the trousers) but cut to an exact copy of Scholte patterns. Harris had already been...
Just for the record, some of the suits/jackets above from his late years were made by Harris NY , copying the DoW existing jackets Scholte had made. Also, the young Prince garments may have not been made by Scholte
