my visit to Napoli & Mina @ Napoli Su Misura - Page 150

post #2236 of 3961
Thread Starter 
NSM has just moved into a lovely new space, about 5 minutes from the former atelier and 3 minutes from the recently-vacated Rubinacci building. For those familiar with Mina's former premises, the new digs are several times larger and will have dedicated areas for fabrics, shirtings, fittings, and a workshop for a good number of her tailors to work on-site. Furniture is still on order, so it will be several weeks before the space is propertly kitted out, but just wanted to share what subsequent visitors to NSM can expect.

I also had a few fittings... below a DB in Smith Woolens.

Looks nice, but it seems that everything is very high up, the button point, the hem and so forth.

Fancy. I'm glad they're doing well.

 

I agree with PB - the buttoning point seems to be a bit too high (particularly for NSM). But nice overall.

Love the clean, modern design of the shop. Nailed it.

You look fantastic.

It's cool that you'll be able to see a tailor when you stop by.

That was the one slight disappointment I had when visiting - that the cutter wasn't able to be there for the fitting.

Wait so Mina isn't a cutter?

No. She takes the measurements, adjusts the coat/shirts during the fitting, take your pick, but no, she doesn't cut the pattern.

Nope. She is similar to the Rubi's - not a trained cutter, but someone who is well equipped to conduct fittings and has a good stylistic eye.

I didn't know that.
post #2249 of 3961
I love the fit!

My NSM DB's look quite similar to medtech's. I like them a lot. They do look quite different from the Savile Row DBs so it depends on your taste.
