French Tailoring Thread (e.g. Camps de Luca, Cifonelli, Smalto and etc.) - Page 48

dieworkwear, how did the tailor recognize the guy as a mafia man? That's the thing with prospective clients: if they don't come with a famous face or arrive with a posse, the tailor can only google their name afterwards.

I would love to know who produced the blue jacket in the middle picture of Obiang's son. Without commenting on the man's character, I think the jacket is quite beautiful. The shoulder line looks like Cifonelli. The shape of the notch is different than anything I've ever seen before. The buttonhole on the lapel appears to float above the fabric. If anyone does know and is willing to comment, I would very much appreciate it.

Paristailor knows, you can trust me on this one...

His identity will not be public and I doubt be will be an active participant.

More and more I think RJman has the right idea about being active on internet forums...

Simon Crompton of Permanent Style has written a short article about a day trip to Cifonelli, Camps, Corthay, Berluti and Charvet for Essence magazine of London. No relation to the American one, I think. Essence has a concierge service, or perhaps is one with a magazine attached. Not sure of the point here, but Crompton has deep knowledge of the subject, and works in progress at a few houses. Plus the pictures are beautiful, for instance:

Simon must have the most professional menswear site available, he often travels with a photographer though the end pictures are usually contrast-heavy. The archives have much to teach for any man.

No offense to Simon Crompton. I love his website, his sartorial point of view and the always beautiful pictures of Luke Carby.

 

But I don't think a short trip to Paris, make you an expert on French tailoring.

Not sure where he has ever implied that he was an expert on French tailoring. By his own admission, he was visiting and ordering from many of these shops for the first time.

The point that eluded me was why anyone would use the Essence Magazine "concierge team or your lifestyle manager" to book an appointment with any one of the shops mentioned. Why not just call or email them yourself? How much hand-holding do these people need?

Crompton never presented himself as an expert on French tailoring specifically, but as a menswear expert who can write in English for a general interest publication, he is in the top rank. Plus he's already a customer in a few places. So who would be better?

But let this not derail the thread.

Maybe some people doesn't have time to deal with appointements. 

Or maybe people don't want to deal with French speaking in English. ; )

 

Is-it a new revenue stream for magazine ?

 

 

Sorry, I might misunderstood your sentence. 

I like to read Simon Crompton and I learned a lot on British tailoring via Permanent Style.

 

On French tailoring, I prefer to read Dirnelli or Paul Lux on Style Forum. ; )

Baby Doc Duvalier is wearing what appears to be a French suit as well:
