A nice illustration of the French view on bespoke tailoring. Duret is a French maker of leather goods and belts. I wanted a bespoke belt made to my specifications but won't be in Paris until October. I contacted Duret and told them my belt size and also that my tailor was Parisian and could give detailed information about my measurements. Duret told me that in order to get the appropriate size, they would send me a package with instructions. Today, I received from Duret a canvas belt with cork and nail attached via leather at one end, and a leather capsule at the other end. It is a simple but nifty way to get an accurate belt size. It came with instructions in English. All of this was sent international mail with a customs declaration at no cost to me. Sure, they could have just accepted my measurement over the phone and sent me a belt, but then I might not have measured right and I wouldn't be happy. Typical of my experience with those who really want to get it right. Pictures below (with Cifonelli bespoke trousers and a Charvet bespoke shirt thrown in for good measure).

which belt are you getting?
post #727 of 1430
^ for the first one, a black box calf belt with black linen stitching and the delta palladium buckle. I may get a colored leather lining (I like the blue lining in the example on the website) but all visible leather and stitching will be black.

Congratulations to Camps de Luca !

 

Tomorrow, French president François Hollande will give The Living Heritage Company label ("Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant") to the Parisian master taillor Marc de Luca. 

 

The Living Heritage Company label (“Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant”) was set up by law in 2005 in favour of SMEs to promote the development of companies embodying an economic heritage composed in particular of rare, celebrated or ancestral know-how based on their mastery of traditional or highly advanced techniques and limited to a particular geographical area.

That's some good info, HT, thanks. Make sure to post some phtographs or video here, as I'm sure that the press will be present.

^ I've always found them very accommodating with pictures. I photographed my entire fitting process and posted it in on a thread.

I come from a journalism background, I've learnt that something always gets more eyes if it's pitched as an exclusive, even when it's not wink.gif

Hah! I actually really appreciate you posting those photos (and I'm using one to select a shirt!). For those of us in the U.S., the picture below is the way we make an order. Charvet has incredible customer service is always happy to send a fantastic selection of swatches. You just miss out on hugging the bolt of fabric.

I had no problem taking pictures at Charvet. Madame Colban is friendly with bloggers...

This afternoon, I visited Berluti workshop rue de Sèvres. 

All the staff was very nice, master tailor Karim Rehabi and Alfredo.  

 
Berluti is still taking orders from Arnys customers. You can order "La Forestiere" jacket in Bespoke.

 

They have "La Forestiere" jacket in ready-to-wear revisited by Alessandra Sartori.
