I have a pair of high twist 8/9 fresco navy pants, unlined. They are fine but need to wear dark colored underwear.

I ordered trousers with Scabal in grey.  They should be a nice spring/summer.

 

Looking forwards to the outcome...

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!

My two friends are having their first fitting for MTM on the 4th. I'll let you know the details I can get.

That would be awesome. 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.

All measurements are definitely done in Brooklyn, or Manhattan.

The buttons and buttonholes are done in Brooklyn by hand.

Although not Ercoles, my most recent suits have been 160's and 180's, and I love them. They feel and look fantastic all day long. pB makes a good point about longevity, but to me they are worth it.

Enjoy them while they last

I have a S150 that feels great but doesn't drape so well. decisions.gif

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.
