Nah, just curious. I have one tailor I'm very happy with (KH&L), and will decide between Rubi and Paone for a softer touch on my sportcoats and more casual suits.
He took my money, never delivered the garments despite well over a dozen emails / calls. I lost the deposit plus what I paid to Minnis for the cloth.He is a crook.
Thanks, Despos + Greg.
I'd be curious to learn what you think of his work? I've had three different people tell me he is MTM, and the one suit I've seen was quite flashy. His father was featured in O'Mast though, implying a bespoke offering.

I don't disagree with the broad strokes here, but I do believe you are misinterpreting dieworkwear's msg on Paone's schedule. I don't believe, after having exchanged a few emails w/ Paone's son, that they won't follow-up with recurring visits. In fact, Andrea explicitly mentioned that they would only come early next year if they were committed to at least a 3x annual turn.I think die-ww was simply saying that he would hardly have the Paones commit to a multi-year schedule,...
What approach is that? One that involves him taking a long flight, meeting new people, taking initial orders that may not be of oligarchic proportions, and following-up accordingly. How in the world does that strike you as idiotic??What led to Solito and Ambrosi's 'downfall' had more to do with their dishonesty than anything else. You, of the 'my former Facebook friend has cheated me' posts, should know that.
I believe he's going to SF though...
Yeah, so? If your contention is simply that recurring clients are better than 'samplers', then thanks for stating the obvious.The point I was making was that every traveling tailor deals with this very issue, but they continue to travel (often increasing the frequency of their trips), thereby implying that they're still doing a good business despite the high churn.So, yes - dieworkwear may order only 3-4 coats over 2-3 years, but that doesn't mean its not worthwhile for...
Solito was hardly a 'deal' of any sort - he predated NSM, and Rubi came to town infrewuently. For Neapolitan tailoring, Solito was essentially the only game in town (save the guy who came with Scafora, who was more MTM).
