Everybody talks about Italian, British and US tailors, I would be interested if the Southamericans have just the same approach or if they do something different.
Different place, different people, you know?

Yes it's in Santiago, but the tailors have a good knoweldge of saville row bespoke and other fine bespoke makers. It's a family owned buisness. The salesman and head tailor are brothers.

Of course, I'm sure they're used to making suits with a different aesthetic than they did for me. Chileans that dress well dress rather conservatively. Closed quarters, boxier shoulders, etc. It was, however, quite easy to get them to make the jacket as I envisioned. I brought in a few pictures and they knew exactly what I wanted without looking at the pictures much.

Being true bespoke, I can't imagine much difference between Aedo and others. The draft an individual pattern and have multiple fittings. The main difference is that Aedo uses different materials for some components. For example, the shoulder pads are made from foam and the buttons are plastic. They mentioned that you just cannot get different shoulder pads or horn buttons here in Chile. The buttons aren't that bad though. They're some of the nicer plastic buttons I've ever seen. I know Sfer Madrileno will be asking them to make a suit with almost no padding in the shoulders sometime in the future. I haven't seen his commission but he asked for a conservative navy suit. I saw his second fitting and it seemed quite nice.

^^You could get your own buttons, fabric, lining and everything else and bring it to them. I'd imagine you would have access to all of those from England and other places. As for shoulder pads, they could probably make them themselves.

^^ Yes... my thoughts precisely. I didn't want to be too difficult for the first comission. I think it's good to get an idea to not be too anal for the first commission. I think it's good for the relationship. I have plans to source different components in the future. I think they may be able to change the shoulder pads with a bit of prodding.

My next commission will probably be a few pairs of pants. Then onto a tuxedo. CMT for pants is roughly $150 USD, not bad at all.

Beautiful tie and I love a symmetric knot with a nice dimple that fits nicely in the collar. For some reason this site seems to be stuck on crooked four in hands with haphazard accidental dimples. I think this looks like a shirt and tie that shows the same attention to dressing well that the sport coat you are wearing shows.

I'm usually yet another four in hand or double four in hand guy, but I'm short so less bulky ties like this one usually end up a tad too long... in fact it's a half windsor and the narrow blade is almost showing mad.gif

That problem is nothing a pair of scissors can't resolve.

Hello, SF. First pic. The suit is pre-SF and I am well aware of the issues with it at this point - I'll be getting new ones now that I'm educated. This was snapped quickly before a wedding and I look a bit rotund from that angle but I'm not, ha. Sorry it's not ideal - I didn't have the courage to ask for a proper fit pic.

I figured I'd give you some fodder to shred me with and exact your retribution. Have at it. Cheers!

Oh, and if you're interested:

Suit - Hugo Boss
Shoes - AE burnished brown strands
Tie - Panta (thanks, Ed)
Sunglasses - Mosley Tribe Lyndel
Watch - Hamilton jazzmaster open heart (http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQOME9S77cLUgZfSIiH11-YyOcA_S40i8i5jvfpof7BkVOzL0I5xIPzs2ku)

PS - this is my urban backyard... hence the size, ha. Those are grape vines on the fences, though!

Thanks for all the feedback on the last post and here, something for recent posters:

Spoo: I would prefer a bit sleeker shoes, now they feel a bit "small" considering the leg opening. Beautiful shirt and even more beautiful shirt buttons.

ClarinetPlayer: Nice knot, but the tie needs some texture? Jacket looks a tiny bit wide from shoulders, but otherwise good. Like the collars.

Holdfast: Fantastic! Perhaps my favourite from you for a long long time. Like the colors, fit and those shoes are just amazing. Would not change anything.

Citan: Perhaps a white linen square to add some freshness in both cases? Otherwise good.

Pastor: Black ps? Also the stripes are a bit much for me. Materials work.

musicguy: Simple works. Good.

DerekS: I think the pants need slimmening, quite a lot actually. Now your bottom half is way too 'big' compared to the slim silhuette created by the fitted jacket.

Friday Spoo: Love it. Perfect.

Kappelan: Nice colors. The jacket looks a tad wide from shoulders, which might be due to the pose.

And a few work looks from recent times.

I don't usually wear monochrome, but it was right for the mood in this rainy Monday.

Wednesday. Bit more color and playfulness. None of the red is bright, it's sort of burnt red/rust. Socks are rust.
