French Tailoring Thread (e.g. Camps de Luca, Cifonelli, Smalto and etc.) - Page 109

post #1621 of 1737
From my experience with 2 of the tailors covered in this thread I have a strong preference for one over the other (for a few reasons). However echo the earlier comments regardiing stylistic/cut differences. If you haven't already done so you should visit Paris and the tailors that interest you to get a closer look.

Okay. Thanks guys. I'm going to make a call soon to Cif and see what's up. Ideally I wouldn't have to travel over there and they would just meet me in NYC. Do they normally carry, erm, samples when they visit? Besides what they would be wearing? I think I'm pretty sold on Cif for now, at least.

If you meet them in NYC they will have other clients' garments that you can look at. And of course Lorenzo will be dressed in his own clothing. As far as I can tell, all the various jackets displayed on the website are jackets that Lorenzo has made for himself, so if you want to see a particular style you should just ask him to wear it. Good luck and enjoy! It's a great experience and an amazing garment.

Lorenzo C. is a pleasure to deal with. Very professional.

However, no. It does not. The outcome is far from what I had imagined and I had to alter the coat quite a bit to have a decent back. The front was good though. 

The lapel looks very nice, personally I like them more than the Smalto ones which are quiet similar. 

 

Quiet sad the fit doesnt come out as nice as the others.

Just found this in a NYC thrift shop. 80s velvet piece. Pretty worn unfortunately.

Well worn 80s purple velvet? Bet that jacket could tell some interesting tales...

Hermes MTM exotic leather jackets. Certainly French tailoring involved I'd day, they used Belgian in the past I think.
I think Seraphin is their MTM manufacturer now.

Just got myself a Arnys/Berluti Forestierre in double-sided cashmere - 30% off in the Paris Soldes.

 

It's the one on the right:

 

 

 

Ironically double-sided cashmere was cheaper than flannel (which was not on sale).

Did you keep the Berluti buttons? They have the old Arnys buttons that they will swap out for you. The old Arnys buttons are really great.

I want a NOS corduroy forestiere, almost more than anything. One of my biggest regrets when I went to Paris a few years ago - right before the sale - was not picking one up.

It's not too late to do that.

Why don't you ring them and see if you can get it now over the phone?
