I must say, I'm a bit disappointed. I've been away for 4 days and all there is are a meagre 5 pages.
We made 10 per day when a few were bashing A&S!

Runinacci and Solito probably use the same basic Italian draft that is popular in Italy and just add their secret ingredient to create drape.
The actual cut of A&S and Mahon looks very different to the Italian draft and I'm not too fond of it.
Not only is the armhole pretty wide, the shape of the side seam will create a very messy area behind and under the arm/ sleeve. The wide armhole also demands a wide undersleeve, so it really gets messy (pictures later on).
I think iammatt posted a picture on the LL with him (wearing a Rubinacci coat), Mahon in the middle and a mysterious customer of that tailor.
I would love to see that again. Would make a great example to show the differences, I think.

Here's a bit of drape for you. Just a bit. I think you might not hate how the sleeves hang...this old suit is back fresh from a sponge and press in Cumbria.

I will pass on new bespoke purchases this year. In fact, I may pass on all clothing purchases this year.

For the benefit of the tailors ... good for you!

Sadly, I'm out of space ... and as a residential architect (with work in the office) I know better than to undertake a home construction project.

Seriously, is there a point where one has "enough" let alone "too much?"

Oh, yes ... it's possible ... it's been done. I'll send you quantities via PM.

"Too Much Is Never Enough" -- wallpaper* magazine cover headline January 1999.

My collection is now at the John Hay Library, which will be getting my collection of books about clothing when I die or lose my mind, whichever happens first.

I'm thankful that I think differently. Then after I PMed MarquisMagic with an approximate inventory of my wardrobe ... he agreed with me.

I don't think anything you own qualifies as Americana.
