I payed by bank wire. I am in Europe and it is pretty standard. But I recommend you inquire with him. The blue tie is 9 cm and the other two are 8.5cm. The ties are bespoke, you can specify any length or width.
I just recieved three new ties from Passaggio Cravatte. The ordering process went quicker this time and Gianni was a real gent. I selected three vintage silk prints and I could not be more pleased with how they turned out. I opted for the basic three fold and once again the ties are beautifully constructed. But the biggest plus for me is the vintage silk prints which have spectacular colors
I received a couple of vintage grenadines several months ago from Passaggio Cravatte. I am now just getting around to putting up some photos. I met Gianni Cerutti at a trunk show in Paris and he is truly passionate about vintage fabrics. The brown tie is an unlined three fold and the blue tie is an unlined seven fold. As others have already mentioned, the construction is top notch and his selection of fabrics is very unique.
1) The suit was made in September 2011. I don't want to get into the price thing as things may have changed and it is always best to ask the tailor directly. I will say that at the time it was more than 2000 and less than 3000 euro.2) Concerning French tailors I have several Di Fiore suits and several Cifo. I am by no means an expert and not technical at all. I find both comfortable but the Cifo's are cut closer. The Cifo are a bit more sculpted and structured in...
Actually the jacket skirt is only slightly flared. The more exaggerated flare in the second photo is do to my crappy photo angle and for whatever reason I was holding both my elbows up which also created a bit of a pull at the buttoning point (i'm also probably a bit fatter than when i had the coat made) . In a more normal standing position the flair is more similar to the third photo (unfortunately my jacket was not buttoned). I made a last minute decision to try...
Really tired of the KL discussion. Let’s try not to ruin a good thread with ridiculous back and forth arguments. I will try to get this thread back on topic. Here are some pics of a Di Fiore suit I am wearing today. I apologize in advance for the crappy iphone photos taken in favorite igent spots (toilet and elevator). Cloth is Harrison’s hounds tooth worsted flannel.
Agreed, best value in Paris. He is very capable of cutting a very elegant suit, for a price that rivals some mtm programs . not the level of detail on par with camps, but then again almost no one is. I believe he was trained at Camps and by his father. He is very flexible, but I would not stray too far from his usual cut. Do not expect to get an unpadded/neopolitain shoulders or an english chest. But if you want honest/authetic Parisian bespoke at an affordable...
Here is a link to some photos of a less well known Parisian tailor Marc di Fiore. Alden and RJman once did a report from his shop but that seems to have disappeared from the LL. Too bad those guys most likely aren't going to participate in this discussion.
