What do Cifonelli charge these days for a bespoke 2-piece or 3-piece suit?  (Assuming a fairly standard worsted cloth).  And any ideas on what the turn-around time might be if I travelled to Paris for 1 fitting and did the other 1 or 2 in London?

Come now, you must admit that it was tediously difficult to turn a shawl (one of those thin, stretchy, loose accessories) into a suit with inner structure, buttonholes, drape, and the works. Cifo did this and their House Cut is evident, even though the material lacks all of the best things a woven worsted suiting offers. I'm glad this one found a home in a museum -- it's a great example of what those crafty Parisians can do with enough time, patience, and skill.

For anyone size EU 52R residing too far from Paris, therefore with more difficult access to the Fench fishmouth lapel style, I'm currently clearing out some of my MTM suits and jackets that have that classic Parisian feature, if you'd like to be able to try it on the cheap. Pictures of the sale here:

(Notice I'm also selling a Cifonelli RTW suit.)

PM me if interested in anything from my sale.

Sorry is asked and answered already. Who makes Camps de Luca shirts? Are they true bespoke, with individual pattern? If so, then why not more recommendation for this service for Camps clients, given the convenience?

Many thanks,

I stopped by barneys in LA to check out the new Cifonelli RTW line. Though they only picked up a handful of pieces, it was really interesting checking them out. Quality is excellent. I was surprised by the smaller lapels on the suits, when the SC's had a wider notch. Would love to have one of their SC's if I had the cash. The shoulder and chest shape was really excellent.

Mr Suzuki did a great job on this new website. It's nice to have details of his work.

Only thing I still don't understand is the name of the URL. It's the worst URL for SEO. 

 

 

Gentlemen 2.0, the one and only Dinerlli inside the French magazine O Obsession... ; )

Very interesting that you say that regarding the lapels etc.. You are not the first person to comment on the Barney's collection somewhat not reflecting the true Cifonelli product. I have recently gone bespoke there (incredible experience) about to  have my final fitting and also bought a couple of beautiful pieces from their RTW line on rue St-Honore. Both offer an incredible product, the experience at the atelier is not surprisingly one of the best I have ever had but that have been able to translate that somewhat into their RTW store and product. Really impressive. However, I have heard from someone I trust who visited their concession at Barney's that they were very surprised to find very short slim lapelled jackets there, it was apparently very fashion friendly...

Any chance you could post photos of the final piece? I am on my last fitting on a 6 x 1 and quite frankly I am not sure I could ever imagine another kind of DB. It is just perfect for my build.

Unfortunately not as I've had a very hectic travel schedule for work and therefore haven't been able to do my next fitting.
