for me RTW trousers simply do not work. I have large thighs and slightly bent legs. Even when I went through buying some RTW "suits", I made the effort of buying jackets suits with a fabric label inside and then sources the fabric (LP, E. Zegna, Guabello, etc) and given it to my tailor in Naples to make me trousers.
Yes the Mola/Cerrato are in the 3th/4th generations. Their great uncle was already working as trouser maker for the early 19thcentury sartoria, and the uncle for Antonio Schiraldi. Another member of the family is a specialised waistcoat maker, some say the best in Naples
Most jacket are now cut so that the circumference at the lower buttoning location is less than tge one at the real buttoning point, so to make it effectively a fake buttoning option (the lower button will be around the hip were the body widen up).
Further progress: the sole went on and the 360 welt disappeared
Brisbane Moss cotton has an incredible price to quality ratio. I have used their corduroy and cotton drill fabric for trousers and have been very impressed. Caccioppoli does carry Brisbane, but probably can be bought cheaper directly
they may commission exclusive fabrics but they do not own any mills
Thanks, he decided to do a 360 welt as he thinks it achieve a more complete look, and see if I like it, otherwise future orders will be welted up to the waist area
I ended up going with a "one man" shoemaker (well he outsource the closing to some ladies) and the shoes are slowly taking shape
