Styleforum Top Pickspost #36377 of 787229/23/12 at 5:46pmThis is my first fitting with Mina and Dino of Napolisumisura. I got measured and chose the fabric eons ago, and lost about 25 lbs in the interim, so it's nowhere near correct here. However, the extreme slope of my shoulders and the upper back is perfect - in other words, the only part of me that did not shrink significantly is excellent.
I only post it (1) so you can see the fabric choices, which I think turned out solid (It's always hard to tell from a 3 x 3 swatch); (2) for comparison with the finished product, which I have very high hopes for.post #36378 of 787229/23/12 at 6:21pmBigA-- guessing the trousers are also bespoke from napolisumisura? what's the measurement at the ankle on their typical suit trouser? What's the going rate for a suit, if I don't provide my own cloth/ use their own cloth selection? I'm hoping to order my first suit from them this year, if i can catch them in the USA on one of their visitsQuote:Originally Posted by Big A

I'm so jealous of you tall & slim guys.
The silhouette you are able to achieve with a well fitting suit is so damn flattering and something a small/skinny guy like myself can only dream off.
What is that zigzag stuff around the pockets though? RTW garment with pockets still sealed like that? Why are you not keeping it?Quote:I enjoy pictures of bespoke adventours so much, thank you a lot for sharing.Originally Posted by Big A

Also very impressiv what a loss of some weight can mean to the fit of a bespoke garment.
I hope you will keep your weight stable from now on so that the adjustments to the suit will pay off in a silhouette as lovely as yywwyy's.post #36381 of 787229/23/12 at 7:59pmpost #36382 of 787229/23/12 at 8:59pmpost #36383 of 787229/23/12 at 9:16pmpost #36384 of 787229/23/12 at 9:18pmpost #36385 of 787229/23/12 at 11:10pmpost #36386 of 787229/24/12 at 12:40ampost #36387 of 787229/24/12 at 3:29am
Jacket, knit vest, trousers, socks = Emidio Tucci
Shirt = Charles Tyrwhitt
Tie = Lester
PS = E.G. Cappelli
Shoes = Carmina
These jackets are quite well made for the price, I've dissected a few of them that became too big on me. They are half canvassed and sell for €165 - €300 depending on the fabric (I got this one on sale for €120, it's half-lined wool). It needs to hit the tailor for shoulder adjustment though.

Thanks for the comments, all.
You're holding my comedy cravat wummery against me? Or you really didn't like the grey linen? Man, I love that suit. Anyway, appreciated that raspberry socks are not to every taste!
Yeah, I do have that tendency to want to fiddle with little details. I always figured embroidered initials and such were a bit insecure (like personalised number plates - I know it's my shirt/suit/car!), but still can't resist putting something odd in there. The buttonholes you wouldn't notice at first glance; as for the lapels..well...I can be an intense and serious dude work-wise, so a little whimsy doesn't hurt!
I know what you mean. I just kind of like that buttoned-up three piece look, but maybe it looks odd to some with a two button jacket. One of my linen ones is three button, will post to show the different proportions. Also adding lapels to the waistcoats on a couple of others. It's a balance for me, liking the very formal three piece while having to stay very light-weight in a hot climate.
Re. "previous work", also not digging grey linen, or still offended by cravat and "eye-fuck" socks?
Yeah, I do have those on several suits. If it's any consolation, the next batch just have the lapel buttonhole and the last of the sleeve buttons in odd colours. But, each to his own, eh? As for "matching", I never allow anything to match as such, but do tend to have maybe two "families" of colours going on, and then dilute it all like this with a plain white shirt or PS. I can see this purple/raspberry/burgundy mix just isn't for you, even against a conservative blue-grey suit. But yeah, it is a regular colour theme in my style; shoelaces get in there too, especially if the shoes are black and conservative. Thanks for the input, though, always interesting to see through others' eyes.
