I could not find a specific thread/previous post about this, so here is my question: Does anyone here know a source for traditional Patent Leather (the kind made with boiled linseed oil lacquer)? If that leather is really impossible to find any longer, who are the best modern patent leather suppliers? Which supplier is used by John Lobb St James, Cleverly etc.. (@ntempleman @j-mac @bengal-stripe others?) Whilst I do appreciate the spit shine calf leather options for...
Not shoes but was in St James today: And Jermyn Street: (Only the new fugly models in the wondow):
If I read correctly, the guy is having shoes made, so if you were him instead of a bespoke pair made like a Dover, you rather but the RTW pair?
There is no much information out there but after several years with JLP bespoke and then being director and master Bottier with Massaro, Philippe Atienza has opened his own operation a month ago at 127 rue Amelot, 75011 Paris in France. Does any French speaking member heard or can found out a bit more?
Would do the Dover
He was concerned with going MTM vs Bespoke and to get things done in 4 days, so I have asked him to consider proper tailors in the city!Facts:She was working as a shop assistant/stylist. She has stated before through some of her customers that she was not a tailor. She may or may not have attended the modellista school in Italy (concerned with factory production modelling). If she ever did then chalk signs and note on a work sheet would be all it is needed for the coat...
I think SKM is engaged in the discussion about alternatives, and his question to which I suggested "considering" alternatives, was about him not being sure to achieve what he wanted in the timeframe available. So, your whole logic of why I should not write in here has no sense. Do not worry, still feel good about using their service in your city.Also, you may have confused me with someone else, as I have made recommendations and reviews before (in a post above you alledge...
1-@_AMD: the title talks about someone visit to Naples and then them, (the OP was featured on their website...), so I can read and I am addressing the Naples visit part.The thread has evolved and It has plenty of posts of critiques and alternative options.Open your own thread about NsM best "tailoring" house in the world and in the OP state the rules for which comparisons to others are not welcome. Then blown your own trumpets.2-They were honestly advertising their service...
I told him to consider a proper tailoring operation. Why paying for the premium of the travelling service and the middle man? That kind of tailoring (unknown cutter that did not learn/train within a great Sartoria of the 1930-60) direct in Naples would be at least 30-40% cheaper.I recall a post of you from few years ago that you even stated that if one did not have access to Naples then these "travelling tailor" we're the only options. I am free to write an informed...
And who told you she is a trained cutter? Who is talking BS?And aside of what I know, go through the many pages in this thread and read the many times where clients were told that pictures and video were taken so that the cutters would see, and still garments went back and forward before they got made properly.I will always recommend that if going to Naples it is worth visiting a proper operation where the cutter, il maestro Sarto, is the guy you deal with. If you do not...
