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.

 

That's a very good argument. It's true. If you want a true neapolitan shoulder, nothing like their's. What I mean is that finding a good tailor is not easy, and the amount of money you have to pay for a new suit or jacket is not low to change in any new piece. Then I prefer to give my tailor the chance and be very very clear in what I want from him. Sometimes the tailors can do much more than we expect, but we never give them the opportunity to demonstrate :-). But, again, you're right.

He has a blog http://www.joaquinfernandezmaestrosastre.com/ It is in Spanish but you can see images of his work.

http://www.joaquinfernandezmaestrosastre.com/2012/09/desectructurado.html this is his try on an unstructured jacket and some other pictures with more detail in here http://www.elaristocrata.com/2012/06/bespoke-xiv-tradicion-y-modernindad-se.html

Yep, I've read his blog - that and the articles at El Aristocrata (great blog, BTW) are what makes me think he's pretty good at doing whatever you ask him. I have my eye on that house, but I need to check how much they charge.

 

I have absolutely no problem with the blogs being in Spanish - I'm from Madrid smile.gif

I've not tried but I know him personally. As always, from the photos there're some pieces I love and some other I don't like at all, but you never know if those clothes you don't like were an idea from the tailor or a customer request...

I rather like the look of the unstructured jacket posted above. The shoulders are square-ish but that's probably due to the tailor's form, or the shape of the customer's shoulders.
