Kuro, have you been reading what I have been reading? I just finished Farid Chenoune's men's style history book and that The Group of Five photo was printed on one chapter. The top right suit is from Camps, I can't remember the rest.

Hello all, just wondering if anyone in the thread has commissioned items from Kenjiro Suzuki yet? Would be interested to hear feedback on his work from those who have seen the results. Thanks.

I have a first fitting with Kenjiro Suzuki waiting for me to come by Paris. Can't say much about his work yet - he and his wife are extremely nice, though, and communication has been excellent so far.

Thanks Stone. I've only heard good things that match your impression. Would be interested to know what you make of it...

SeamasterLux has a commission underway at Kenjiro Suzuki, I'm sure we'll have a detailed report & pics when it's ready.

Lapel notch doesn't look like CdL to me.
post #915 of 1050
No, not at all. However, we know that CdL make the bespoke suits for Hermès so perhaps they use a different notch. My photo sucks, but the finishing (e.g., the Milanese buttonhole) was excellent...
