And this is the jacket from my last trip:

I thought he had retired for some reason

Mina is, IMO, the best "value" in bespoke tailoring right now. Great product, FANTASTIC people to work with and I have never heard of an issue with cancelled trips, delayed garments, etc. I think they are the only option for Italian tailors who travels to the states on a regular basis. I know Liverano and Formosa are talking about starting to make trips, but based on prior experiences with other italian tailors, I would rather wait until they demonstrate some consistency in coming before making that commitment.

I continue to use Poole, Dege and soon Steed for different styles, but the quality and service from NSM is every bit as good as their British counterparts.

I've only read about her but I would agree, especially if one lives in the cities she travels to. Because HK has my pattern though and I can make a vacation out of the trip, I'm still wedded to the East.

There's truth to that. Personally I think she gets a lot of first-time bespoke clients given her price point and these might be used to the very skinny ready to wear suits that have been popular for over a decade here (and probably all over Northern Europe). I'm wondering if we'll ever see an end to these atrocities. Sometimes I fear suits exploding in a cascade of fused wickedness if their wearers would draw a deep breath. smile.gif

I am picking up my first finished garments from her on Saturday in Stockholm. I also have two sports coats to be fitted for. So I can't really judge yet. What is convenient is of course that they come to Stockholm 3-4 times/year. And from what I've heard it's good value, I have several friends that have been very satisfied with their work. They are also pretty responsive to e-mails although this could be improved IMO. I've had no replies to my e-mails about a shirt collar and cuffs so I have no idea what kind of shirt I'm picking up this weekend. smile.gif But Mina and Dino have been nice to deal with IRL and being on the road all the time like they are, I can understand they can have a hard time keeping track of all the inbound e-mails they receive.

post #3714 of 3944
well i am relatively new in bespoke, a couple of jackets and some suits. I am still exploring new styles; i will try a sicilian tailor in a couple of months and Liverano in Florence. So far in Naples i tried 3 tailors but satisfied only the work of Solito. He's a great tailor and very nice person.

Does Mina bring a cutter with her to the states?
post #3716 of 3944
I don't believe she takes a cutter with her anywhere. She does the measuring, takes some pictures and video, which I guess she then shows the cutter back in Naples.

I've seen NSM's work at several SF Meet-ups.
I think Iive seen the "shirt sleeve shoulders".
NSM cuts seem to vary. Some jackets I've seen
are ridiculously short- perhaps the wearer's preference.
Overall, I prefer Steed- Full disclosure, I am a customer of neither,
and don't wear bespoke.

Considering an NSM commission,

Just read through 50+ pages of "Pa-Fucked" comments. Still haven't gotten to the resolution part. Did NSM ever address the issue? I think much of it was overblown by foo.gif
post #3720 of 3944

True. I meet Mina and Dino today and ordered a suit with a nice heavy 340g wool from Minnis. And talked a little about the soulder and i think they understood pretty well that i want a straight soulder with shirt sleeve-insert
