Finally, a new arrival. I placed this order during the 2012 trip - a three-piece suit inbound from Florence. The cloth is the London Lounge RAF Blue PoW (LLBR09). This was a bit of a marathon. It took over 24-months with three fitings (two in Japan during 2013 and one back in Florence earlier this year).



The three-piece was inspired by this.



More to come...

Gaz

Did you pay a surcharge for the extra padding?

The jacket is on a mannequin it's not a good indication how much padding it's on the jacket, also it's a Florentine style which usually have more shoulder paddings than it's more popular Neapolitan cousin that we used to see on this board.

Your suits looks great on you. Your tailor did a great job and well worth the wait. I like the dart-less front too.

Thank you.

A note on the cloth - it is just wonderful. It is as hard wearing as Minnis Fresco but not at rough. The open weave makes it idea for summers. The jacket js quarter lined and I got a vest to extend the suit into cooler months. I believe a remake is being organised by the folks over at LL.

Yes I did but they are all winter wear.

Nice suit. By coincidence I'm wearing something similar today, except its too hot for a waistcoat. Of course, my cloth and tailor is much cheaper.
