I seem to recall (maybe wrongly) that NYI posted some information about Ercole's MTM suit program recently, but I can't find it. Does anyone have details about fittings, what's done by machine vs. hand, which factory is used (assuming one is), impressions of the final product etc.? I know, I should just email or call them, but I'm interested to hear from customers as well. Thanks!
I think measurements are all done in Brooklyn (or Manhattan), and the suits are made in China, but are fully canvassed. Jeremy (I believe) wears them all the time and they look damn good on him. They must do the minor alterations needed once the product is shipped to them.
Does no one take issue with the quarters on their jackets? They look like OTR jackets for someone with a huge drop that had to be taken in on the sides. Are there examples of more open quarters? And do both of them create it that way?
Hag, I think thats the SF Neapolitan fixation speaking. There's technically nothing "wrong" with quarters that aren't flared wide open. I've had discussions with Frank about it, and his opinion is that for most guys the open quarters don't work as they make them look like they're wearing silly short jackets, also shortening the wearer to the eye.
