I sold this solid charcoal a few months back for a bit over $2K

In popular sizes there will always be people willing to pay around 50-60% off retail for Attolini.

A wise man once said - "good bespoke is better than bad RTW but good RTW is always better than bad bespoke".

FWIW - I bought that suit for myself, it fit great but the trousers rise was way too low. I was able to immedietly re-sell it for more than i paid.

Calm down, kid. It's not that serious, and I dont really care if you don't believe me. There were several of them BIN 700-1000 40-44R a few months back. Perhaps not current season, but I cant tell and dont really care about that. Perhaps it was an isolated instance, but those were up for at least 20 days in my watched items.

If you can afford it, and it fits, then buy it.

Don't buy just because it is a deal.

As for bespoke, I've had my last 2 suits and a tux made from scratch and they're not perfect. They are better than what I can find OTR, but "perfection" is illusory.

I am happy though, and that's what counts.

@ OP, recently I spoke with a "representative" of Attolini and La Vera Sar. Nap.; he resides in CT, but travels to NYC to conduct orders & fittings etc. His prices are less than retail. I personally don't have any experience with him, but I'd be happy to provide you with his contact information. PM me if interested

OTR clothing isn't inherently worse than bespoke just because it's OTR. If it fits, by all means go for it.

if you can afford it, go for it. Though, do check your closet size before you do so I am debating whether to buy another DB solely base on that reaosn...

i'd go for it. wish it could be a little bit less but where do you even get a silhouette like that in bespoke?

haha did you sell that on ebay? if so i think i was one of the ones bidding on it. 36r right? i lost out though and ended up getting a navy blue one from shop the finest. If the attolini fits you well there is no way in hell you are getting bespoke of that level for 2600. Maybe from napoli su misura but ill find that out tomorrow!

If you find some Zileri that has more or less that figure in that color, let me know. I´ll pay 1500 euros for the Attolini I got in my wanted add. in Euro 48r or 46r Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Can't you get two Chan bespoke suits for that price? Do you need a new suit right now?

+1. in my experience, great rtw is better than even merely good bespoke.

+1 imo. I've got mostly borrelli and some bespoke stuff. It's difficult to match the level of quality the top-tier Italians put out. The pick-stitching on my borrelli is clearly better, but the balance better on my bespoke due to a lower shoulder. My borrelli is more comfortable. That said, I can't afford to do bespoke all the time and don't have access to Rubinacci. So when I find borrelli jackets for 800-1200 I jump on them. One day when I hopefully have better access to naples I can go exclusively bespoke. There are very few makers that would equal Attolini in quality though. People seem to forget that. It is most certainly worth 2k if you are going to wear it.
