Not a shirt, but pocket square (apparently, made by Mary from leftover shirting) that amazed me. Have you seen hand rolling of this quality before? Not me... Andrey
The brand is very well known in Russia; there are several shops in Moscow and other cities. As sartys said (putting political comment aside), this is a Russian brand, with "italian" name invented by marketing. General consensus among Russian iGents is that the shoes are way overpriced for what they are. Glued, and most likely Chinese made -- though obviously, being an invented brand, they may change suppliers and introduce new lines from time to time. Andrey
Interesting... I wonder who is going to replace him as A&S' head cutter?I heard that Lesley Haines (ex head cutter at Douglas Hayward ("real" one, before Kilgour boys came in)) joined A&S as a cutter.Andrey

I wrote a short review of Mary Frittolini's shirts a few months ago: http://bespokeetc.blogspot.ru/2013/08/blog-post.html (yeah, I know -- the text is in Russian, but pictures speak on universal language). Also, a couple of pics of my finished shirt: As can be seen, buttonholes are sown by hand. Buttons also attached by hand; and the monogram, of course, hand-made as well. Machine-made seams are incredibly tiny and neat. Collars and cuffs are fused. Andrey
Seems to be a truly great exhibition. Hopefully, they will publish an accompanying book. Andrey
It seems that Elizabeth Radcliffe now works for Levi's -- making bespoke jeans. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/fashion-and-style/10465485/How-good-can-a-pair-of-500-made-to-measure-jeans-be.html Andrey
Last time I discussed this with him (admittedly, a year ago) he offered some Neapolitan MTM shirts (Emanuele Maffeis?)Andrey
FosterandSon, thank you! -- very interesting. Andrey
FosterandSon, could you elaborate a bit on what lasts Mr Astaire prefered? Does he always chose the "squarish" last used for the correspondents? Andrey
