The request was kind of a wild goose chase regarding a different brand I fell in love with that looks like it is produced by Bagnoli. Currently slated for Fall are suits/blazer/coats from Fugato/Papa & Sons, some Royal Hem items, and hopefully some high end pants (trying to get in touch with a few different manufacturers at the moment).
Apologies for resurrecting a dead threat w/a weird request -- but if anyone has a Bagnoli blazer sitting around, any chance you can take a pic of the inside label (the white label w/fabric content), and post or PM? Much thanks in advance
Re: Pennesi -- it's made by a company called Copen Group out of CIvitanova, the same company that makes the Royal Hem line (www.royalhem.it). We carry a lot of their merchandise, and it is generally all very slim fitting, though, the Pennesi line can sometimes vary. If you're purchasing a suit off Yoox, one decent indication of sizing is to look at the leg opening -- 6.63" - 7.25" is generally very slim (some might say a "skinny" leg); 7.5" - 8.5" is a more "tailored" fit;...
Re: Messagerie -- It's what is referred to in Italy as "Total Look" -- it's a designer label that does everything from casual to formal wear, and does the full line (pants, shirts, shoes, blazers, suits, sweaters, etc...), as opposed to the brand of a specific manufacturer that only makes one type of garment. The label does the designs, and contracts out all the manufacturing -- for better or for worse, I know who makes about half their stuff, and know the quality is...
Ha, well I'm a bit biased....cough, check the sig block., cough....but it depends what you're looking for. Leaving the brands we carry aside for one moment, if you're still looking for a very slim fit, but something slightly better made, try Filomarino (which has some slightly more classic styles but updated fabrics and colors), Messagerie (which is in line w/Brian Dales in terms of styling, but slightly better made), and John Sheep (kind of out there in the designs, but...
Sad to say, but I'd tend to agree on the suits and blazers. If you can find something very cheap, and are a really skinny guy, you'll probably be fine, but they're not worth much. The leather jackets and shoes from the brand aren't too bad, and the shirts vary a bit in quality.
Thanks for the shout out. In case it means anything to some folks, our current stock of shirts, other than those from Culturata, is made by Saitt, the same company that produces the Truzzi and Mastai Ferretti line of shirts. We import our shirts directly, and they are all made for the Italian/European markets, so the fit is generally slimmer than anything you will find here in the U.S.
...cough...
Always a good resource -- http://www.retailmenot.com/view/yoox.com
Just to put out a plug for our shirts -- PEURIST has a wide selection of slim fitting shirts made by the same company that makes Mastai Ferretti and Truzzi, all for $39.99. We promise these are some of the best fitting and best made shirts you will get at this price point. We have two fits available, the 'Custom Fit,' which is the standard slim fit that will work for most, and some shirts marked 'Slim Fit,' which are extra-slim, and are meant for those who are slender and...
