I scroll down the page, see in the side bar that there aren't that many posts after the original post about Tiberias. And then I see it's already been done. ffffuuuu.gif

If this hits $1K, we can throw in 5 Zegna ties that were donated by a member. I have to get his permission to see if he is good with having his name exposed.

Cheers,

Fok.

3 lapel widths

 

narrow 2.75", traditional 3.5", wide 4.5"

 

customizations for other options can vary greatly:

32 different button types, shell, horn etc, 

20 different colors for piping

~100 something lining choices

22 different color choices for contrasting buttonholes

22 color choices if you want contrasting pick stitch

 

for the undercollar you can have either felt or suede:

20 colors of felt

Lots of handwork in the suit, all buttonholes, the construction of the full canvas, the lining all attached by hand, all the pick stitching, the chest pocket and more.

 

We have a lot of Loro Piana fabrics 

 

Summer Tasmanian: Super 150's wool and silk 600 blend <- for those that get hot or in tropical locations or even travel alot. It's extremely lightweight, breathes easily and resistant to wrinkling

 

Four seasons 130's: Beautiful fabric for your everyday wear

 

Super 170's: Super soft, it's like Loro Piana has golden fleece or bought a stable of unicorns

 

Also have fabrics from Ariston which are especially great for those people who have too many staples and need to breathe life into their wardrobe.

 

Then fabrics from a host of other highly respectable mills:

VBC, Reda, and more

 

We'll be getting some zegna fabrics as well in 2013

$1000
post #510 of 571

Let's keep the money rolling!

 

$1k won't even buy an RTW BB 1818 suit with VBC super 110's.

 

Anyone getting married? 

 

Get your wedding suit or tux!

 

Anyone freezing to death in this cold winter? bid up for an overcoat for next year in pure Loro piana raw cashmere. 

 

this is the time to get that ultimate luxury suit, with the LP 170's. 

 

Plus a someone is throwing in 5 zegna ties!!!!!!!!!

 

You know that feeling you get, when swoops in and steals in the last second that ebay auction you spent 7 days following. or You wait all night in a line on black friday and the person in front of you gets that last big screen TV. or you have had an item in your cart for days, and finally about to pull the trigger, but it sold out. 

 

That rage, table pounding, yelling, cursing then frantically searching, calling customer service, trying to find one more somewhere out there. And then utter despair and sadness that leaves you with a void forever. 

 

Don't let this happen to you.
