Make sense, interesting, nonetheless.

Which, for lack of a better term, "style" travels? Who comes to New York?

IMO:
Attolini looks good
The one Castangia example looks good
Rubinacci looks a bit off
Steed doesn't look very good

Luca comes to New York. I actually don't know whether you can pick to have things made in Naples or Milan, but I can't see why not.

Ah- thanks M- wondering how that translates to each cutter...

Do you see a marked difference between Attolini MTM and bespoke, or am the only one? The MTM has no shaping in the chest. It looks like they just took a RTW jacket and cut at the sides.

Pardon my ignorance but I'm really confused now. I thought that the cutter/fitter influences the shape, fit of the suit - the tailor pieces it all together.

If Luca's the one that's travelling and he's the one doing the fitting, won't the garment then take on whichever 'style' he represents?

The bespoke seem to fit better but the styling on the MTM seems more attractive to me - I can't really explain it but I think the MTM ones are better looking garments. The cut on #5 is especially unflattering IMO - makes him look chubby.

It does make sense especially if they're locally trained..

Milan is a city with a different sociocultural and therefore sartorial heritage than Naples..
The Milan look is cleaner and more structured...More business like when Naples is more flamboyant...

I see it as you see it; not that the MTM looks bad. I wouldn't expect the MTM to look as naturally shaped without some serious surgery.

We get that- Trini's point, and my question, is how one individual's measurements results in two different house style that still fit exceptionally well. I might suppose that any issues are resolved in the fittings and that Luca's measurements are enough to get started.

Neither Luca nor Mariano are cutters. They may take initial measurements and liaise with the tailor who is making your garment during fittings, and they are responsible for the ultimate outcome, but they aren't in the back cutting cloth or sewing.

I think the MTM Attolini dinner suit is one of the worst, and arguably the worst, of the whole bunch. It really looks just like RTW adjusted by a lazy alterations tailor. Not too hot on the style, either: the peaks looks like they are going to lift-off at any given moment.

That said, the other MTM example is much better looking. I don't understand the discrepancy. I can see why one might prefer it over the bespoke, but chest shaping is really important to me.

I think they all look great in their own way. I'd be happy with any one of them. All of them seem to have a more relaxed style than one often sees which I appreciate. They are not clean and lean. The one thing I might suggest is to lower your next commission a half inch. On some items the quarters seem a bit scrunched.

Thanks for the comparison! Very gracious of you.

For your body habitus, Attolini [and maybe Liverano & Liverano].

I can't say that about the Steeds.

Vox' Steeds make me want to meet with Edwin and yet these do not.
post #45 of 301
Montesquieu,

Which of the suits feels like it fits your body the best?

The reason I ask is that in the past Vox has had people comment that his Solito fits better than his Steed, only to be told by Vox that the Steed is more shapely and fitted and the 2 dimensional picture does not capture the full shape of the suit.

Also, what are the weights of the fabrics on the Steed suits? My own experience is that a suit needs to settle on the body. Usually the heavier the cloth the longer it takes for the suit to properly conform. Does this explain the odd collar roll on the Steeds above the button?

Fit notwithstanding, I love the fabrics you've chosen. Particularly the Steed #5 and the Attolini #1.

Thanks for posting your pics and opening yourself to potential (inevitable) criticism (abuse).
