A visit to Sartoria Ripense, Roma-based bespoke tailoring house - Page 4
Awesome, thanks. Would you mind sharing the outcome?
The problem I have with Italian three-piece suits are that the rise of the pants are often too low, rendering the vest too long. It's not a big deal on the single breasted vest but I think the DB vest is best when it is cut high so that the horizontal bottom is near the natural waist. For example
In my case, the trousers are really high rise. I've never had them so high and the belt is at the belly button level. You would expect them to be even higher?
Thanks for the kind comments. The Ripense buttonholes are flawless. I never found better looking ones (even Camps de Luca and Cifonelli do them as good but not better).
I truly like the value for money that I get with him.
really sexy holes
Paul, thank you for the insights into your bespeaker journey. Would you care to elaborate a little in your thinking when writing:
"It’s really worth trying this tailor as he won’t let you down and represents, according to me, the best value for money I’ve seen on the bespoke market.", as I'm thinking strongly about moving from MTM to bespoke.
This not to pit say Rispense against NSM or SR in a SF war on who's the best, and there can be only one tailor to rule them all.
I'm more thinking in somewhat softer terms - what makes you lean to Ripense instead of others, from your personal standpoint? Is it the easy access, the staff, the experience and understanding that evolves between bespeaker and client over a longer period? Is it the handwork and cloth selection?
Naturally it's a combination of all mentioned. But still.. you must have written as you did for a reason.
