Purple is not really a wedding colour. In Naples is seen as a grieving/funeral colour for example (the brides would have a fit if female guest turned up with a purple dress).If you must, really, wear a purple accent, I think this is really how far you should go :Source: Turnbull & Asser :...
It will be good so see all finished garments from similar camera angles. Tofani has been used and talked about by member banis in 2011 circa. He had used a lot of neapolitan tailors including The service of NSM, Tofani, the other Pirozzi (not the one talked about above) and Volpe. He also posted pictures of the jackets shoulders for comparison both on here and his Tumblr
what did I say that was not true again?Keeping up the story of shilling? Can you also explain why do you blast this forum on the Asian one and that participate here so to sell ties and fabrics? Who is obsessed with whom again?
110% Spanish . As I said is obsessed with neapolitan tailoring /handmade garments.
@akoustas worth clarifying First: Sarto is not from Naples or Italy. He is Spanish and obsessed with an idealistic neapolitan tailoring take. He has frequented this forum for years under many other nicknames and has been apparently slammed by everybody before finding nice friends at Kiton... He moved there to study shirtmaking apparently and may still be there. He goes on a South Asian style forum bashing off anything he sees here on SF and is obsessed with many worrying...
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
