From the website a very limited fabric selection for RTW. I like stripes and/or patterns. Compare with Hilditch and Key- now on sale or at a lower price point Harvie and Hudson, also on sale
Only places I've ever seen come close are Yoox (they typically have two or three Belvest suits and a bunch of Caruso, some of which will be in the $1k range). Not particularly familiar with the others. My guess is that Yoox is offerering a "difussion line" Their clothes look nothing like my Belvest sutis/jackets. Nor for that matter my Isaia, Sartoria Partenopea, etc. Try these guys. They sell Belvest mostly size 40. Not the short tight trendy...
He is indeed an excellent person. However, I disagree about on his tailoring skill.He basically ruined a pair of cavalry twills of mine during the 90s when hewas the tailor at the Hound and had private clients- which would be me, whenhe had extra time. I still have the unwearable pants if further proof is needed.
Photos? I might be interested in taking some of them. I wear mainly 3.75 inch ties. Almost nothing less.
Did you pay a surcharge for the extra padding?

What is it about Italian Sartorias? They produce English versions of their WebSites which look they've beendone by someone's nephew in Liceo who is studying English. This is not limited to the less prominent, thelast time I looked at the Rubinacci WebSite- a year or so ago, the English was similarly incompetent.http://nhsartoria.it/capi_index.php?capo=1http://www.styleforum.net/t/330381/the-mariano-rubinacci-shop
You caught me! I had intended to wear a wing collar, but my Valet, who was later deported, inexplicably sent out all of my wing collars for laundering. Suffice to say, my collar choice caused a minor sensation.
