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...
That is the thing, they are not tailors and to me it does not make sense to go to Naples to use a stylist service that was born to take Neapolitan tailoring to other countries.This is not an affiliated thread and there have been critique before (the pack...ed shoulder comes to mind)
Presot is considered the very best and last traditional tannery.They have three qualities of sole leather and each comes in different thickness. The Super Oro is the best
My message above may have been missed in the exchange , what about the Italian Presot as an alternative to Baker
Talking about traditional tanneries, have you ever heard of Pietro Presot? Like Baker in UK, Presot is the only tradional tannery left in Italy and is considered among the best if not the very best tannery in the world for soles/ bends
If going in person in Naples have considered a proper Sartoria where the owner is also the cutter? If prearranged most will accommodate all the necessary fittings in 4 days and then ship the finished jacket
I think the Loake UK9 shoes tree (no last specific) would need at least an AE US10 shoe
I have used Brisbane Moss Shakespeare Cotton Drill , 215 g/m2 for three chinos and have two or more lenght left for more chinos in the future.Pretty happy to use them in the summer.Brisbane Moss has another Cotton Drill, range Tennyson, 290 g/m2, but only in very conservative colours.
Are these pairs from the same dead customer of the JL St James?
