Wow.

+1 I like the fit of that shirt. I think the trousers fit great, but then again, I liked the fit of the trousers earlier in the thread too

So I had final adjustments to my 3-piece Loro Piana PoW this evening, and I have to state that Mina and Sr. Antonio have really raised the bar with what I can only describe as a fucking bang-on, next-level garment. While I'm still a bespoke novice, I can't see how either fit or aesthetics can be meaningfully improved from here. Am too tired and need to crash, so will provide details on mods from my previous commissions tomorrow, including a "reveal" which should be of great interest to NSM clients...

^^^Looks fucking great,I am envious. Do you think that you get better results by going straight to Naples as opposed to getting your fittings elsewhere? I am assuming that you are seeing the cutter of your garments in Naples,right?
post #424 of 3933
Bam! Wow! That's a friggin killer suit medtech. Makes me think that perhaps I'll give Mina my Fox Flannel glen plaid fabric. We'll see how things go at our first meeting next month in NYC. Can't wait after seeing these shots!

I like how you posted plenty of good pics

The vest looks nice and higher up to my tastes.

Shame there isn't enough bidness in Los Angeles to get them to come down here

Beautiful Riva fabric medtech. And that 3-pc is killer! The coat appears to be quite a bit longer, no?

Really enjoying these reports.

Seriously one of the best bespoke reports. Mina's work is blowing me away. They seem more expensive than Chan, but not once you factor in the fact that they nail it so well early on.

Either way you get the boss. Medtech just has a little more flexibility in where he is at any given moment.

All you fence-sitters - NSM is as good as it gets without buying a sartoria. You cannot get better service than la sarta finishing your coat while you wait, all the while telling Dino that if he wants his coat fixed he should get in line.

and David - PM me.

Love the jacket, the waist reduction and the back.

Some other of your earlier post here did wrinkles on the back of the armhole. Was it fixed?

So... does NSM travel to Australia yet? Medtech, (based on your location) are you one of our own? You should bring her over!
post #431 of 3933
beautiful beautiful suit. I'd probably prefer the collar to be a tad higher, but that's nitpicking. Congratulations.
post #432 of 3933
My goodness! I, personally, think you are probably the best dressed on the forum. Most top in my book! Congrats!

Amazing suit! Some suggestions for your next project:

- the collar could be narrowed just a tad so that no gap is formed when you raise your arm or put your hands in your pockets
- I would like slimmer sleeves
- I would shorten the sleeves a bit

But I'm probably nitpicking / expressing personal taste here.

What I like about this is that you actually look comfortable. This means that when you wear this suit, it's going to look like it does now. I'm not sure whether I'm making sense, but I've seen a good few fits and most of the "better" ones are where one can see the wearer feeling good wearing the suit.

I would speculate that (in my opinion) this is one of the best fits I've seen for a long time (and I've seen some very appealing fits here).

I lot of people want to add tweaks to it. I say that the current configuration is something that you're clearly happy with. Most of the advice is personal to the poster. I doubt that you'd listen to most and I agree that you shouldn't.

Just enjoy the suit. Makes me wish that I had some good money (and a better body) to rock that shit.

Well done

Clint

I'm not sure about "better" results per se, as Mina has a tremendous knowledge of construction and is an exceptional fitter. The fact that Sr. Antonio has seen me a few times clearly doesn't hurt, but he work is guided largely by Mina. I'd say my visits to NSM have enabled me to reach this stage more quickly, but I'm equally confident I would have gotten there even without setting foot in Naples.

Mina and Sr. Antonio continually tweak stuff as they see it. The key thing I'm learning is to really wear the garments to enable them to settle in and confirm to my body. Sounds obvious I know, but I think there's a tendency here on SF (and I don't exclude myself) to want to "fix" things or make little tweaks right away, which I now believe to be counterproductive.

I was based in Sydney for 2 1/2 years and LOVED it. Am back in the states now and just never got around to updating my profile.

Thanks, I think I'm learning how to be an effective bespoke customer - more on this in another post.
