The summer jacketings on the Tumblr links above are €80/m, or at least they were, when I inquired back in April.
My visit to Caccioppoli Napoli - Page 3
I think they are the same as the LL linens. I just saw the bunch at NSM and the RAF blue is exactly the same as the one I got through LL.
My understanding was that there will be fittings, but the process isn't up and running yet, so can't say for sure. There may be a forward but no basted or something like that. As I said, this is something new that they're trying out before really rolling it out full scale. By the time I'm back in January should know more.
So did you go back?
I was at the local tailorservice this weekend and looked through some swatches. The swatchbook had the name "golden" written on it, and the owner of the shop said that it was a distributor that carried everything from Loro Piana to Dormeuil.
There were some nice wool/silk blends form LP that looked interesting.
But the fabric swatches only had a label with reference number, weight and blend. How do I know where these fabrics come from?
