No I am not, he chose the wrong example. The guy was study at a London Design school which is a stone throw away from Savile Row. He briefly worked as apprentice in a tailoring house as he could have done anything else, How was the same professional road?
Apprentice cutter? He was barely putting stitches. Come on.... He was a good experience to put on the marketing campaign when he first launched his menswear suit collection (I bought two, in London, my first RTW suits- made in Italy either by Caruso or one of the Neapolitan factories).
Except that Alexander McQueen was never a cutter but barely and apprentice
You guys know that after cutting one size pattern, in RTW you follow simple parameters to go up and down in sizes? Whilst a bespoke cutter would have to transfer measures he takes of each individual into one off patterns? There is often talks about paper patterns at tailors etc, and how often the pattern is adjusted. Neapolitan Tailors draft the pattern by hand directly onto the fabric. Only when specifically asked for (e.g. a foreign customer that wants to order...
There were people on this and other english speaking forums over the years that used other Neapolitan tailors and talked about a long list. Carpu who is a member here and many other forums has often spoken about other names. Without any biased influence you could go and research the subject and images without the need of this sort of thread. Once again, you and some others are argueing that without evidence you do not believe that GC get free stuff... I am telling you...
I appreciate your counter arguments but there was already enough cover of Neapolitan tailors and their price competitiveness before on the interweb, if you wanted to search. I keep promising myself to do a long write up on Neapolitan tailoring and how misinterpreted the situation is on this and other forum. In a nut shell: -Neapolitan tailoring has been famous within Italy since the unification of Italy (1860) and by the end of the century, names like sartoria Caggiula...
Evidence was posted about Gianni behaviour with tailors and shoemakers, but removed by the poster not to damage the third party I guess. GC was not Pirozzi client before this internet campaign and his blog, so there was no favour to a friend as you put it. The thread not having much traction does not matter once one or two people have already ordered (early on in the thread). As he kept asking the tailor for free CMT, he is assuring him that he will be posting it as...
You are being oversold... The picture that indianboys reposted of you is very explicit to my eyes: Gennaro pointing exactly something on your shoulder, and Mariano accondiscending expression: he may have said to you in English " I just told Gennaro about this..." And you thinking "wahoo, without Mariano this would have been missed", "other than the translation service, this is really worth paying my jacket three times more then anywhere else in Naples, even from tailors...
@mafoofan Chris is obviously getting the point, because he actually is a tailor.You are the perfect customer for a Luxury product: you know best because you have been told why it is worth 10 more then a similar product by the salesman. Never mind having people in the inside, working or having worked there telling you otherwise....
Matt, I disagree that the friend can see things your tailor can miss. If the tailor miss even small issues with the garment he has cut and has overseen being built, then you have a problem with the tailor. I guess you fantasize too much in what Mariano and Gennaro were saying in Italian between them two while conducting your fitting. Mariano may have commented about "rippling" here, "thight there", whilst Gennaro had probably already chalk marked twice as much stuff...
