Poll: Attolini vs. Rubinacci vs. Steed - Page 5

post #61 of 301
Attolini #4 and #7 are my favorites because of the fit, the fabric and they make you appear just a bit more relaxed yet elegant.

But, overall, you have a lot of very nice clothes.

but seriously, I think if he is going to wear the no break trousers, the openings have to be narrower (as was mentioned earlier). Also, on the some of the wool pants, there is a lot of extra fabric in the thigh/upper area. It flares out to the side, on a similar pair I had heismatt said it looked like I was wearing a colostomy bag. I think the Steed's suit pants look a bit incongruent with the jacket, the coat is rather fitted and the pants look like bags in the upper area.

All that being said, Monti should be commended for posting this stuff for our scrutiny, it is one thing to talk about this brands but quite another to see them in the flesh and also quite informative.

Agreed that many of his pants appear "off" for one reason or another, but keep in mind that not all of that is the fault of the tailors. Monte appears to have large hips and thighs. I don't mean that as an insult. It simply is what it is. I have a similar issue with my body; years of cross country running have given me seriously imbalanced thighs compared to the rest of my frame. In my case, the discrepancy is even more prominent than it is on Monte's body, as my upper body is very thin. It's not easy to tailor pants correctly for the, ahem, generously be-hipped and be-thighed man. I agree that a much better job could be done here, but I would caution against expecting outcomes on Monte that just won't be possible given his body shape.

You are the chocolate-panted mack daddy after all.

I assume your new pants will come in S-M-L-XL and also SM-MM-LM-XLM?

Is it a reference to vox's lycra clad pic?

Maybe the OP can post more pictures of his Attolini bespoke jacket paired with...if he has any, Ambrosi trousers to see how they match?

I commend him for the plethora of pictures.

I prefer the choice of cloths made with the Steed suit, so I can't get past that. So I over little assistance

I understand the pedigree of Attolini/Rubinacci...but how, if at all, have both their Naple bespoke ateliers diverged from each other. Do any of Attolini's sons work at cutters/tailors?

Despos...how are the collars on the Milan Rubinnacci...Caraceniesque?
