Take up the issue with Mina and I'm confident she will rectify to your satisfaction. FWIW, certain fabrics with which her tailors are less familiar have required 3, 4, or even 5 fittings to nail down. And they are pretty familiar with my pattern.
Which fabrics/weights are they most familiar with? I've been planning on giving them a a go soon.
Well, I should start off by saying that multiple fittings for me have been very much the exception. On average, jackets have been nailed with 1-2 fittings (and to be fair, often they're minor adjustments), while trousers are pretty much good-to-go the first time around.
But in my experience the fabric can have a huge impact on the process. The grey/brown/blue Caccioppoli gunclub a few book back - a fabric which she loved and had made up for Parker and others - required maybe 5 fittings. We couldn't understand it and Mina thought she was going crazy, even resulting to multiple comparative measurements with my other jackets. Finally she nailed it and it's one of my favorites, but what I took away is that in the end we're dealing with organic products made by hand, and (at least I) may have forgotten that sometimes significant variation exists.
The other time was a dark grey PoW from the Lesser 9.5oz book. She hated the fabric as she felt it had no spring or body. We couldn't make it work so moved on to something else.
Michaele has been making up my stuff consistently for at least a year. Prior to that was his brother Enzo. So it was more of a transition as opposed to a rotation.
