Roda thoughts opinions input

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
This brand appears be virtually non existent on the interwebz. I have tried googling and have been able to come up with very limited information on them beyond some very superficial information. Both of the Bloomies locations in the city carry some blazers by the brand and I have to say I for one am a fan, but can't quite figure out if I think the quality warrants the price point. My take is that they are some of the more nicely draped and superbly comfortable jackets. Does anybody have experience with them? Quality? If they are not a manufacturer then who manufactures for them etc. Thanks for the input in advance.

I am wearing a Roda tie today. The tie is of very solid construction and is made of a wonderful 60 ounce silk. I'm not sure how indicative this piece is of the brand, but it's my only expereince with the company.

Thanks..for some reason its feels as if the only information about them relates to their accessories such as ties and scarves offerings.

Like others, my experience with them is quite limited - I own two pocket squares by them. They are both very nice and amongst my favorites. Nice cashmere/silk blends with handrolled edges. I like. But I don't know anything about their tailored clothing.

I found a Roda sports coat which I like but was curious about relative quality & retail pricing - anyone have some info? Basically the same question as the OP from last year...

My guess is that they extended their offerings only in the last seasons. I have some nice cashmere scarves and two wool/cashmere sweaters bought here in Switzerland. Only in the last year I saw Roda pants/shirts/coats/outerwear. They are priced similarly and sold next to Piombo, Truzzi, Allegri, Herno, Cucinelli, Malo, etc. I have not tried their sportcoats, but was no impressed with the fit of their winter jackets sized small/medium/etc. I'm not a big fan of how Luca Roda dresses, but if you like the flashy Italian casual dress, go with it

Holy CRAP. I have a beautiful cashmere tie I got from the B&S... I never imagined how loony the brand was.

Makes me appreciate the tie more!

I'm thinking about going back to look at it tomorrow, if I do I'll snap a few shots. Totally unstructured & unlined, marked "S", a bit like the bright blue 3 button pictured above in shape/style.
