I heard from him.
post #512 of 616

Hi, what did you hear? I've pinged him three times about getting back the jacket I brought in to be altered the last time he was here, and have heard nothing...

I was just there, picked up two jackets that look great. The pents need to be taken in but they are spring/summer suits anyway so I can wait.

That's weird. When he was here a few months ago he brought my jacket (that I ordered ten years ago) and marked it for final adjustment. I haven't heard from him this time at all.

couldn't have been ten years ago, could it? I think his first trip here was like 2008 or 2009. Which, admittedly, is close ...
post #516 of 616
ah. That explains why it is not ready yet.

I have mentioned before that the most difficult part of bespoke is keeping a steady weight. The fact that you had to try to maintain your weight between these fittings deserves kudos.

Dopey, if you're not joking I would never do business with that tailor again. 8 to 10 year wait is a large bit unreasonable.

It hasn't been ten years. Dopey was just making a point.

For anyone in NYC, Luigi is returning to the city next month.

The trunk show will be held on April 20th, 21st, and 22nd. Location is at the HMS International offices (730 5th Avenue in Suites 502 and 503).

If you're interested, you can email Luigi directly at luigisolito (@) yahoo.it

anyone had any recent items commissioned from solito e.g. past 6-12months and how was the turnaround, results?

I have. Turned around between visits (so ~3 months), no problems.

Saw Luigi today and got my suitcoat. It has taken a while -- this was the last of three suits and one sportcoat ordered many, many, many years ago, the rest of which were all made and delivered on a normal schedule. It also looks great. He is travelling with Luca Avitabile and they say they are on a four times a year schedule.

Dopey, for your old order, who did the trousers? That is the issue I have with my long outstanding order.

When I placed these orders (I think I did them in two bunches), Ambrosi was doing the trousers. I got the trousers for this suit long, long ago, but not the suitcoat. Fortunately, it is a super lightweight tropical and I got plenty of wear out of the trousers so the long delay has been only an annoyance rather than anything else. I haven't spent any time with this item yet, but I have high hopes as the other things Luigi has made for me are among my favorites.
You have my sympathy about the trousers. I have always had a good experience with Ambrosi - and he went out of his way to get my vacation clothes to my hotel - but I know others have not.
