I just find I can get a cleaner underarm by using a separate side body.

I've had several different cuts over the years Side bodies with no darts in the fronts. Good for plaids. Side bodies with darts in the fronts. ..and the cut we've been discussing above. In my experience the cutting technique that the tailor employs is dictated by the clients build.

Will you have that overcoat made up? What fabric did you end up going with? Mina had a DB navy herringbone on a mannequin which was very similar to the brown one she made up for Ed in September... looked fantastic. I'm considering this myself.

I always enjoy reading your posts to understand the causes driving a particular result. In this case, the pulling was addressed in the forward fitting.


For those of you who have PMed, I may appear to be showing an outrageous amount of cuff but this isn't the case. I was wearing a Borrelli RTW shirt with the cuffs undone for the fitting; with my dress shirts, slightly more than 1 cm of cuff shows. Incidentally, I had the chance to examine a few of Mina's shirts and was very impressed. She took some measurements and will have a trial shirt for me next month.

Nope. Have 2 sportcoats and a suit in progress, and will drop by fabric for another two sportcoats.

Her shirts are very Italian looking. Thick buttons and a very tall collar (at least for me) for my fitting. The swatch fabric labeling was a little confusing, it had labels for both 170s and 200. Kinda academic to me as the colth feels amazing. The price is good if it is 170, and a bargain if it were really a 200.

I really missed Italy. Nice trip.

Probably for back when people stood straighter.

Thanks for posting these E.

Thanks for sharing your experience. The relaxed elegance of Italian suits are unequaled.
