Thanks. Yes, my first fitting was with Luca, Mariano and Chiara. The second was with Luca alone. There was no cutter present, but Luca did take a lot of photos and marked up my jacket where necessary. Final fitting in Milan was with the GM Vincenzo and the head tailor. When I first put the jacket on in Milan, I was disappointed, because it was very loose fitting around the waist, almost like a sack suit. But even at this point, the shoulders and the sleeve pitch were...

I didn’t want to post anything until I finally finished reading this entire thread (over 3 weeks!). While in Japan, I bought the newest issue of Last (vol. 6) magazine. Previous to buying it, I gave zero consideration to buying any shoes in Japan, remembering from my last visit how much more expensive shoes were here. I was really impressed by all the brands, but especially by the bespoke makers. The two that I instantly fell in love with were Marquess and Fukuda. ...
