I find Ercole's does a great job and can execute a neapolitan silhouette quite nicely with a lot of handwork, but obviously not as much as you would find in a garment made in naples, where skilled labor is sourced much easier and cheaper. I would say the overall theme is consistency, and by foo's argument NSM is not consistent with what it puts out, some garments are fantastic and some are less than stellar.

My Ercole is quite different than NSM. The shoulders are more square and more padded giving me a more dramatic athletic silhouette. My newest NSM are rounder and more subdued.

This is true by default of ercole's preferred style/cut, but he can do an unpadded unlined neapolitan hand felled stitches w/ chrome rims sport jacket, albeit at a higher price, and create a rounder silhouette if your prefer, I'm sure you already know this, just throwing it out there. I do think NSM made a lot of things that turned out fantastic. Its just a matter of consistency, and I get the point about that, which is why I have been using ercole's more often recently. English fluency plus spalla camicia is a wonderful thing, that and not having to wait as long, although RubiTuesdays will always hold a special place in my closet

I might not like the way his Rubinacci suits look, but its pretty easy to see that they are well fitting even if the details don't appeal to me. And i think his point was that this isn't a detail that is shared across all jackets and seems to be a mistake in some of the jackets.

P.S i just noticed it on mine as well. Thanks for that!

Btw I assume people realize this already, but you can see exactly what's in the chest of your NsM jacket:





This is not a feature that is unique to NsM at all.

Hand-padded?
post #3231 of 3961
How would I be able to tell for sure? I can't see that far in.
post #3232 of 3961
Then, no idea. Aren't there photos of works in progress?

Can't tell anything from that. Lapels aren't padded yet.

Isn't PSG's jacket Napolisumisura's work? I think shoulders and chest look pretty damn good here.

Honestly, can't tell much. Resolution too low.

That jacket is NSM.

 

i like pagoda shoulders but i am not refined enough to observe a minor padfuck shoulders.

post #3238 of 3961
Hard to tell when it isn't buttoned.

I don't really like the NSM quarters. They look a little closed to me. Obviously that is just a styling preference.
post #3239 of 3961
I think there are a lot of different variations on the shoulder for the Rubinacci's that I've seen but both of these look to me to display the same effect as the NSM shoulder.

Was fitted in Stockholm by NSM for the first time a few days back. By accident I ran in to several other SF members during this fitting, a very pleasant experience.

I will report back on the progress later on, next fitting should be in a few months (seems NSM visits Stockholm about 3-4 times a year, does that sound right?).
