I was at the G&G reception on May 9 with the crew from Chittleborough. Most everyone was elegantly turned out with the noticeable exception of that magician hired for the evening. Totally random, but he had a 10 min up-close routine which was actually quite impressive.

Cool. Now it makes sense that he's a magician. I wonder if they'll do something similar at the NYC event.

After few months, I just finish today my new video on Japanese bespoke shoemaker Yasuhiro Shiota for French House, Aubercy.

Had my first fitting yesterday, but from the photo you can't really see the fishmouth lapels, I am a bit worried that they might get the collar wrong (not lapel) as it is somewhat larger than usual.




Will post pics when it's done.

I feel for you. I have gone down that route a number of times, even giving my Hong Kong tailor the actual original Camps or Smalto jackets to copy, but it never works out to be just perfect, frustratingly. So I can only guess how approximate it will be if they must cut a copy just based on a photograph. Interesting experiment, I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Question for Cifo's American customers - do they carry the completed suits with them, or does one have to pick it up in Paris or have it mailed (thereby incurring American customs charges)?
