Solito Thread - Page 41
F*** me - how is it, that every single tailor shop I happen to cross, messes up my order somehow. I'm new to the game - and heck, I'm ready to all-in on OTR soon. So here's my experience with Solito. I visit their shop in Naples, and choose fabric and so on. We agree to meet up in London. I email with him a couple of times, trying to arrange the london meeting, regarding dates and times and so forth. I show up on London, and he doesn't have my jacket with him (it not made, even though he says it is), and he doesn't even recognize me. So a whole day wasted traveling from Denmark to London. He promises me, to get things in order. I send him the emails below - and absolutely no response. What a freaking waste of my time. So everybody is hereby warned. I will be posting this on the Solito thread as well.
I’m still waiting for response - see below.
I, quite unhappy with the situation last Thursday. When paying that much for a bespoke jacket – I expect things to be in order. I’m not pleased with a whole day of travel being wasted – and money as well. I’ve spend 240 Euros on the trip to London – which I expect to be deducted from the price of the jacket 2100 (price of jacket) – 240 (travel expenses) = € - do you agree ? And with regards to a whole day wasted on travels – I expect the service to be extraordinary good in the future.
And just to make sure, that we don’t end up with any mistake again in the future – I would like to receive a photo of the jacket, so we can agree on the fabric. And next time you’re in London and I’m available at the same time, we can have the first fitting ?

Not the most tech savy - how would people be able to misuse my email adress ? Send me junkmails or ?
And with regards to Luigi - he came out of the bush as soon as I made him aware of my post here. He insist that the already tried to contact me through email to pay me back the money I spend on going to London. Never received that email - But as long as I'm not sure why I didn't receive it, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt !
So trying to decide weather to make a new appointment with him - or not ? I'll be sure to keep you guys up to date !
Would be good to see some more pictures if possible.
What's the starting price point for ciardi? I may be interested in commissioning a 2 piece.
Ciardi starts at 2200 euros in Naples I believe. A friend of mine recently received his jacket from Ciardi and the back is so clean, its sublime.
The SC was not requested to be so short. The chinos I was wearing was quite a low rise (lower than what I usually wear) which makes the overall effect look quite short. I think if the jacket was about 2-3cm longer it would be perfect.
