Also, when I went to his website 2 months ago, the website stated that all manufacturing for all tailored garments (not just suits) is done on the premises and not outsourced (just like it is with the best Italian bespoke tailors). According to my own personal research, the best Italian bespoke tailors have a minimum starting price of €2,000 (which, with the current exchange rate between the Euro and the United States Dollar, is approximately $2,600) for a bespoke suit.

Also, FWIW, according to my own personal research, the best Italian bespoke tailors make up for 95% of bespoke tailors throughout Italy.

The best bespoke tailoring is English wink.gif

I never said Italy is the best overall. I just said what the best bespoke makers in that country do in regards to manufacturing their product.

The best in Italy are just better than the Italians that are not the best but, IMO, they are not the best overall. Are they the most handmade? Yes. Do they have the least outsourced manufacturing (in 95% of cases, no outsourced manufacturing)? Absolutely. But the best overall? IMO, no. Again, I never said the Italians are the best overall.

Personally, I prefer English tailoring myself, mostly because of my larger physique. I am medium width build, FWIW.
