Some photos from spanish tailor - what do you know about spanish tailoring?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I wanted to share with you some photos from Gonzalo Lopez Larrainzar Tailoring that I did for an interview. Hope you like them :-)

 

You can also see the interview in the blog http://www.style-consultant.info/2013/04/charlando-con-gonzalo-lopez-larrainzar.html

 

I don't copy it here the interview because it's in Spanish, but you can translate it into the blog.

 

Regards!

Yes, in fact Larrainzar and Reillo are 2 of the most well-known tailors in Spain.

Spanish workmanship is top notch, that has to be said.

Totally agree. You only have to see the handmade buttonhole in the photo.

Workmanship undoubtedly.
But the shoulders? The house style?
I wouldn't go near it.

and photographs of the suits?


A couple of shots of detail and one of a mannequin does not illustrate much unfortunately,

Yeah, that's the problem. The style is very structured and might not be to everyone's taste. There are some tailors here who are very open to customer requests, though.

That was in fact one of the questions I made in the interview, and he answered that the tailor can have a defined style, but he must be able to adapt it to the customer's request.
If I go to Naples and I ask them to give me a more structured shoulder, I expect them to be able to do it, because they must do more than only the neapolitan jacket, with or without "rollino", as they call it. In this case is the same: if you request some specific style, the tailor must be able to do it.

Regards,

In theory you are correct. However, in reality, the chances are much high that the customer will be satisfied if he goes
to a tailor whose house style conforms to the customer's taste.

That's true. I'll try to share more photos of the sport jackets being constructed in the photos.

I look forward to see more pictures. I am always a fan of high quality tailor who does structured shoulder as default house style.

I agree, but imagine that you have a tailor that has made some structured jackets for the winter and you want an unstructured one for summer. Do you trust him or go to Naples because they use to work this way? I would prefer to see what my tailor can do, and I'm sure that, if he's a good tailor, he will be able to do anything if you explain properly. In the same way, I would give a neapolitan tailor the opportunity to make an structured jacket, and I'm sure they can :-)

 

However, I agree with you that there's no special part of the jacket in the spanish tailors that make them really distinct, such as the neapolitan shoulder, for example. 

 

Regards,

Regards,

Fleetwood Mac are a pretty good rock band. Very competent. If I go to a Fleetwood Mac show and try to get them to play "Blitzkrieg Bop," are they going to play a version of that song that sounds like the Ramones?

 

Since this is music, not suits, I have to admit that I'd actually kind of like to hear that, but I tend to think trying to order a shirtsleeve shoulder from Huntsman might not be so hot. I don't really know, of course, and I'm sure some tailors are more flexible than others.
