Nice - pls let us know your impressions once you've worn the shirt a bit.
I assume you suggest tapering to get rid of the puffiness below the knee. After the first wash, the knee area will start to lay properly (i.e. not so rigidly) and the taper becomes much more standard. In my experience, alterations before the first wash w/ raw denim is a poor idea.
They'll be fine after the first wash. I would leave as is.
I'm w/ Manton - if you must, go with #3
Has anyone bought the Esemplare fishtail parka? Thoughts?
I'm done, you win. Rubi's pricing is in line, or perhaps even economical, with their competition.
I know, I know. I really shouldn't have fallen into the trap. But, well, here I am.
What rubbish. You're either dense, or like to distort other people's statements to support your own flimsy stand.No one has tried comparing budget tailors in Asia to Rubi. The simple fact remains that compared to the vast majority of its cohorts in London, Italy and America, Rubinacci is on the expensive side of things. By any statistical mark, that makes his pricing an outlier.You haven't used A&S or Knize or Formosa or Caraceni, so your blithe disregard of them is...
I have never heard anyone, certainly not me, state that Rubinacci's prices are higher than all others.If Rubi is in the top 5% of 'top' tailors by price, then it is certainly an outlier. Just because a handful of other firms have similar prices, doesn't mean that they don't all deviate meaningfully from the average of 'top' tailors.
Right, my point exactly - that's Rubi - Liverano - Camps - Cifo - Huntsman - Logsdail, with the vast majority being 20-30% cheaper (Corvato, Nicolosi, Despos, etc. are all closer to $4.5-$5K). Both the Milanese and Roman Caraceni are about 4,000 euros.Unless your argument is that A&S, Caraceni, Knize, Formosa, Despos, Dege, R. Anderson etc. etc. are 'less comparable shops.' Simply put, Rubi is firmly ensconced in the 95th percentile (in terms of price). Nothing wrong with...
