True that it depends on which Savile Row tailors we're talking about. I'm not criticizing how things are done or to generalize about Savile Row. Just explaining that outsourcing some things isn't a sign of bad quality. And yes I have some examples, all my Savile Row suits had trousers made somewhere else than at the premises of the tailor. That being said, I'm not mentioning any of them as it's not the point here.

Hi Seamaster

I have just re-read this thread.

Just wanted to check on something.
At one point, you said Ripense's 2 piece suits were 2.2k euros, then latterly, 3.1K.

Is that price jump correct, or a typo?

thanks

Hi,

 

It was 2500 originally for a two piece suit. But that was 6 years ago. Now it costs 3'100 EUR if you buy it when he's travelling.

 

I don't know about the price in Rome. Might be very slightly cheaper but it's better to ask Andrea Luparelli directly.

A few months ago jackets started at 2.500€ when he was traveling. 3.100€ for a 2pc sounds about right then.

Returned yesterday, from my first visit with Ripense. Ordered a suit and a shirt, and plan/hope to do one suit pr. year going forward. Not exactly big timing, but moving forward with my wardrobe in a steady pace.

 

Now this is my first bespoke suit, I choose the always popular and "safe" navy route. No harm in that I guess... :). As indicated by Paul, he certainly has his opinions on styling - but for me they where all reasonable and founded in his vision for his work.

After I had given my overall design-brief, fiitngs was much more efficient than I imagined, discussing and fine tuning design choices along the way, both between me and Andrea, and between Andrea and his head tailor. I found both quite assuring. But then again, how where I to know how exactly stuff like this work with this exact house, when this was my first visit.

In the 2 fittings I had, we already got a long way and I'm already looking forward to going back for the final fittings in september or october.

Does Ripense travel to New York City?
