Shoulder comparison of Borrelli, Brioni, Kiton, and Isaia - Page 2

post #16 of 34
I say just post a sample of each brand. The differences should be self explanatory after that.

Sho - I recall a couple of years ago a thread that discussed these differences with pictorals and everything. I will see if I can find that link.

well, there is a problem in this as trying to see differences in a photo with all the different angles and such it is hard to depict the subtleties that really come out in play when you actually see it in person. so i rather just have someone tell me how their borrelli is and so forht.

I prefer to think that I reintroduced your joke to the next generation of new members like sho'nuff.

Easy enough. Here is a sartorial all star with different shoulder treaments.

One of the best dressed men of our era, "The black Prince Michael (not of Kent )"

Here in a Huntsman military look ( note the structured shoulder )



Prince Michael in a Roman look, Caraceni perhaps, ( note the slightly roped shoulders ) and also the soft overall look and the Keaton collar shirt:



Soft Neapolitan look ( Not Rubinacci ):



The vintage look ( note the notch lapet Tux )

Just FYI - Michael favoured (from what i can see) YSL, Dior Homme and Gucci. AFAIK everything in the above post was made/designed by Bill Whitten (the "Huntsman military look") and the "Caraceni" look designed by Michael himself, made by Michael Bush and Dennis Tompkins. And now the question - Where does Tom Ford fit in this spectrum? He did say IIRC his suits had an italian influence...

Wow, you seem to really know your MJ design stuff! Is this:



Designed by Bill Whitten or by MJ himself?

AFAIK even Vox doesn't design his own stuff, but I could be wrong. Perhaps Vox designed the above outfit. That would really be impressive!

I posted some pictures comparing the shoulders of Zegna Couture's Cardigan style, Attolini, and Borrelli a while ago:

Hope that helps a little.

Bandwagon.

Vox is generally correct in his comparisons except, at least this past season, the local
retailers of Isaia, Saks and Nieman Marcus, are carrying a newly-designed Base S
model which has much more padding in addition to a shorter jacket and a much closer fit
than last year. I own several Isaia Sirio garments, the immediate predecessor of the
Base S, and the fit is very different. In fact, I would have to go up a size in the current
model despite having lost five pounds in the last few months. I wouldn't buy
this model anyway as I am a natural shoulder fanatic. It seems that the Italian
vendors are reverting to their old silhouttes. I never wore an Italian jacket until five
or six years ago when natural shoulders became common.

That 'gem' (the outfit every single female friend i have loves lol) was designed by MJ and Gianni Versace.
