Before it goes down to the basement for a well deserved spring-summer rest, here's some pictures from one of my favorite brown prince of wales suit by Ripense
Yes they do. A year ago, it was somewhere around 2200 EUR. The grey Prince of Wales (3 piece) that I posted was actually a CMT commission (Cut Make Trim).
That silk has absolutely no sheen whatsoever. It does capture a bit of the light as can seen on the picture of the back of the jacket but it isn't shiny (thank god).
It was purchased from a fabric merchant in the little town of Biella near the Swiss border.
Was nice meeting you Patrik. I am definitely not living in the shop but funny coincidence indeed. I actually met quite a few clients over the years who came there after reading something I had written about Ripense.
I don't live in the shop but being now working in Rome for two weeks, I stop by from times to times for lunch break (and for my fittings as well)
