First of all, a brief poll about whether people order a second pair of suit pants... The can of worms - if the pairs were made at the same time and the tailor supplied the fabric, can you be sure the pants were made from the same roll of fabric? For example, maybe a not-so-reputable tailor has a partial roll left from a previous customer's order. As for actual wearing, do you store one pair until needed or alternate? If alternating, how do you track which pair is being...
Tie explanation appreciated. Extra trousers? Uh-oh. Already made or just the fabric and commitment to make them? A second pair is a good workaround for the poor durability, but nobody wants an end result that is displeasing to the eye and a first time with any bespoke item already is a risk.
Fair enough, though the "fawning" complaint wasn't an attack on him. Clients usually are not spoken to so strongly, but neither are they coddled. Sometimes on forums it seems to make sense to speak more strongly than usual, lest comments be lost in a crowd. In some ways, the wrong crowd, yes. Nobody recommend a skinny tie. Maybe slightly narrower than that one (where the stripes might be adding some illusionary width). Re the pants, possibly part of the problem is the...
Obviously people with serious insecurity should seek direct help with that, but sometimes insecurity comes from aesthetic issues and therefore is fair game for image consultants to help (perhaps with guidance toward cosmetic procedures). Likewise, sometimes people buy fancy suits to bolster their confidence. Better to use an affordable image consultant as a middle man on that than to overspend on clothing, as if those are the only choices. By the way, based on anecdotal...
Yes, it's the Solito thread. And there have been long threads about other suit brands that aren't known by the general public. Has there ever been one about tie tips that show with fastened suits? Priorities. A suit that is mediocre in quality and fits great > a high-quality suit that fits mediocre. Probably some swaths of Style Forum members are more about the adventure (or the insider status) than the results. Edit: he's right about the pants - sometimes even the...
The query is more suited to the "Ask a Question..." thread and the answer might be too late, but darker is better. Major contrast between shoes and pants distracts the viewer. In other words, choose the 8111 or something even darker.
Yet another person who views image consultants through a negative lens, huh? Hours of work go into each consultation. It feels like time better spent than researching specific Italian brands that are outside most people's budgets. (The Die Workwear article actually makes some good points, by the way; sometimes entries on blog-like sites are self-obsessed and of little value to visitors.) The weird thing is that Style Forum can talk a ton about brands like Solito and...
Didn't read the text. Just looked at the pictures. Anyway, because any tie showing there is minimal and hard to see, it's hardly going to bother anyone or distract from the beauty of the suits (the somewhat full sleeves might be more of a distraction). The issue with the Solito suit came up due to the loud tie. Perhaps, the new trend toward aggressively styled suits that sometimes show tie tip isn't flaming out because people often wear those with dark ties (like blue or...
Hrrm, well, per roughly a minute of looking at Liverano suits with Google, the only images where tip tie shows buttoned are at [drumroll]http://dieworkwear.com/post/47544503001/the-italian-cover-upAnd less so than his.[meant as slightly humorous]
Nobody wants to see exposed tie tip. Going back to earlier photos, a bit of darker tie (easy to miss) shows beneath the button in a fairly normal pose. It's frankly irritating that people would dispute that's a sartorial error and that the tailor released the suit to the client with such a problem. Maybe it was mailed? At least it can be fixed without much difficulty. Edit: 'mensimageconsultant' is neither infallible nor a tailor and had hardly viewed the earlier photos....
