I went for very high rise this time and it's looking good.

 

Awesome, thanks. Would you mind sharing the outcome?

I don't at all

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?

Hmm in that case would you consider cutting the waistcoat higher since the trousers allow it? You'd have to remake it, but it might be an interesting exercise. One issue would be that style vest is more british and the Italians may not want to make it.

The pants look great. I have not seen pleats look that sharp in a long time!

Great write up and thanks for the pictures.

 

Those buttonholes belong in the 'Buttonhole P0rn' thread. Really beautiful teardrop shape.

 

I don't know much, but the stuff he's made for you looks flawless.

So . . . have you ever visited with Caraceni in Rome, @SeamasterLux ?
I have been a few times and really liked them, but I have never been to Ripense. I would love to see a comparison from someone who has been to both, even if you didn't order anything from Caraceni.

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.

Nice. Somehow I missed this thread back when it started.

Nice suit.

Good to see some 'harder' suits coming out of Italy pictured on here too.

I wish tailoring wasn't so addictive. biggrin.gif

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.
