not sure what your point is. If you visit a particulat tailor you are going to get his expession. You may ask him for a structured or natural shouldered garment either way you will get his expression of either. Presumably his expression is not the equivalent of Denny's ( using your analogy ) Do people order meat at Le Bernadin, all the time. Would they be better off ordering what made them famous, probably. But thats what return visits and additional suits are for

This topic interests me so I hope Chris and JeffreyD say something about it in more detail. I know Chris is willing and able to take a whole bunch of other approaches, but I really question whether most tailors would be willing to do the opposite of what they normally do. Take the choice between structured versus soft: how much is a tailor restrained from switching between the two based on the method and theory he adheres to? I think it would be odd to ask Rubinacci to make a lean, structured jacket--but I'm not sure how much of that is because it would silly of the client to go to them for that in the first place, or because they simply can't or won't make such a thing.

Hello, I am quite interested in this opportunity and greatly appreciate it being promoted here. I have several lengths of fabric I'd like to use to have both pants and jackets made from - can you please provide pricing assuming I provide my own fabrics? Thank you!

Hey M. Fan, perhaps you can answer this for me. I see that some of these Neapolitan suits have a third button hole on the lapel. Are those actually for a third button that's hidden behind the lapel?
post #113 of 5780
Wow, you are a newbie, huh?

The front on such a coat is often called a 3-roll-2 or a 2 1/2 button. There are three buttons and three button holes, but the way the lapel rolls the top button is meant to be left undone. If you can't see the button in a picture, that's only because the lapel's roll is hiding it from view. I'm not quite sure if this is more a matter of style over substance, but in my experience the presence of a buttonhole does cause the lapel to roll differently than if it were simply a 2 button.

^^purely stylistic. some people don't like it because of the non-functionality of the top button. I think it looks nice. would do it on every suit except for a peak lapel.

This thread stinks to high heaven.

And this from a man who's just returned from Washington DC.

I think 3 roll 2 coats are anachronistic and dated, and distracting,

Did you reflect, on your way back, on all the ways in which you've damaged this country?

Sounds like three pluses to me.

More New England should have rubbed off on you.

I don't see how they could be distracting. Much of the time when I post pics of mine here, people say, "There's another button?"

If SFers don't notice the third button, I doubt the average Joe on the street would.
