French Tailoring Thread (e.g. Camps de Luca, Cifonelli, Smalto and etc.) - Page 104

post #1546 of 1737

I don't think Karl Lagerfeld is wearing Cifonelli those days.  
There is a famous quote from him saying "I could recognise a Cifonelli shoulder from a distance of a hundred metres."

 

Mr Lagerfeld is doing most of his shirts at Hilditch & Key and custom made suit at Dior homme atelier.

Exactly, thanks for posting those and setting the record straight, KL was dressing in Cifo back in the day, well before he adopted his current signature look.
It's also striking from those pictures to see how their cut is so Savile Row inspired, completely different from the traditional French cut. As we've said previously, the grandfather was trained on Savile Row, and the workshop still measures everything in inches.

...alright, I just found one more shot of Cifo for KL:

The cigar shoulders, rounded quarters, DB-vest, lapels, and clean fit are all there. They've been at the top for many decades already.

Mr Lagerfeld proving once and for all that when you've found your tailor, never let him go.

Did not know who was that person until I realized the DB suit is very similar to the one Hugo Jacomet always wear.

A bit off the current discussion. But does anyone have experience with Hermes? How's the fit? What's their silhouette? I found a jacket on eBay that is made in Italy and the owner said it was from MTM program. Since it is a French brand, I suppose it should have somewhat French silhouette? Please correct me if I am wrong.

If I remember correctly, Hermes started a bespoke program where they ship their measurements off to Pacs de luca (I think?) with some collaboration on the design, but that is not the MTM program. anything I've seen from their RTW and MTM does not have a french silhouette.

I can't comment on the silhouette as I'm not familiar with it, but unless changed very recently, Belvest makes Hermes RTW suits (and I assume their MTM).

I've seen that pic on tumblr. DB in navy worsted with patch pockets?!

 

I get the idea of a blazer suit, but this particular combination seems really off.

Yes, you're right. Absolutely terrible suit, can't believe anyone would want to wear that....
post #1560 of 1737
...now that you mention it, I notice the patches. Combined with the swoosh lapels and sharp button line, I would have preferred to see a patterned shirt or tie with this eccentric cut and perhaps enamel buttons. With the current setup the whole looks like business dress with fashion touches. Then again, LC knows what he's doing and I'd hate to see Cifo turn boring. The suit troubles me.
