Sartoria Gianni Volpe - Naples - Page 7

post #91 of 115
Thread Starter 
I have also collected three pair of trousers on this last trip. I consider those a lot like my trousers, as I have specifically requested a lot of details that appealed specifically to me.

The first one is the Trouser in the Ariston PoW check to go with the jacket above (close up of the fabric can be found furrther up):


The second and third are spare trousers for suits ordered in the past. First of the two is a characoal super 100's:



The last one is in Loro Piana Tasmanian 130s (to be paired with a Jacket in a same colour 120's not longer in production):

I love those pants! The button fly is such a cool feature.

The finished PoW suit worn for the first time today. Two very similar shots until I get the change to be photographed better.

It looks lovely, BTW an you comment on the fabric, I knew place that sell the brand for a good price and I would like to try them for the great colour.

The 'structured' stuff looks a good twist to the SF norm bullshit soft tailoring.

Thanks,

You mean the Ariston POW? I like it quite a lot. It is a bit heavier then the common Italian stuff. I have bought it directly from their warehouse near Naples. Ariston is a fabric Merchant and has fabric specifically for them by selcted mills including Carlo Barbera.

BTW my jacket is not structured as well. I think the look is giivenby both my upper body structure and the the fabric itself.

O nice, I think I will give Ariston a check.

Your body makes the suit look great, at the end of the day, this is how a suit should fit.

This looks very good Marco. Surprisingly, these pictures seem much more flattering than some previous ones I have seen you post here. I am guessing it has to do with the angle.

First of all thanks.


It has not to do with the angle, this suit fits me noticeably better then any other I own and it will be probably the standard for all my future commissions.Not sure to what other photo are you referring to (shirts???). My first commissions from Volpe are over 10 years old and have been altered to fit my current body, and although wearable, I never posted pictures. The recent Mohair suit was commissioned in between weights and probably should not have been made because of that, but I wanted to re-connect with mr Volpe and I Did anyway, so it was good but it does fit me a bit looser in the jacket and tighter in the trousers. The only other pictures I posted of a jacket, were of my RTW morning coat, again ok with the limitations of RTW

Apologies for making such a vague comment; glad you are taking it the right way though, as it was indeed meant as a compliment. I think I may have indeed referred to the mohair commission; were those the pics taken outside when you just came out of the car? In any case, not sure it matters much; you seem to have found your go-to tailor and styling, which is what's most important.

I collected earlier in the week two trousers in Brasbane Moss corduroy that will have good use over the coming months. I have taken some pictures to show the first class workmanship.

Nice! It looks like the London Lounge Prince tweed. Any chance for fit pic?
