When is opening?

And what is the suit price range? (Single breasted, worsted wool)
post #336 of 16666
Ok, I will say it. The interactive pic of the suits is next level s#!t. Very nice.

Thanks. Got it and replied

Single breasted, peaked lapels, 1 button, unvented jacket. Black Barathea in 11oz from Drapers's formal book. Thick satin lapels. I considered various configurations, but Gennaro really wanted to go w peaked lapels and satin, the most classic combo. And after seeing the result, I can tell he was right. The cut and shape of the lapels is very va-va-voom (is that the technical tailoring term? wink.gif) and that would have been at odds with a stealthy grosgrain. The roll is huge and voluminous, the whole coat is hand-stitched and even the satin band on the side of the trousers leg is hand stitched. It's an impressive piece - I don't have many of those though.

I like all tuxedos, but all the ones I own have a shawl lapel as well. I like the louchness of the shawl lapel. The peaked lapel is great, and it does great things for most guys' shoulders, mine included. Glad you went with the satin as well. I have both, and the satin is definitely a bit more rich looking, in a good way. Grosgrain, on the other hand, goes really well against unconventional, textured materials. I have one winter weight jacket that is made of a heavy, plush, flannel, that works amazingly well with a contrasting grosgrain collar.

Hope to see some really cool stuff, Greg.

biggrin.gif Thanks guys. Just took a few minutes. It's too bad the code doesn't seem to work to embed on SF - it would be a lot more effective than having to click out of the forum to hover / use

Thanks Fok. Don't get me wrong, I love shawl collar tuxes myself. But I thought that if I had to have just one, it should be the classic SBPL one, especially since Gennaro Formosa was very much rooting for that one (Formosa's DB peaked lapels are legendary)

Sorry about the embedded code. I'll ask about that, but I assume that the platform does not allow that as a security precaution, since we've had issues with malware embedded in images.

Cheers,

Fok.

It's all good Fok smile.gif Can't chase all these new apps and constantly tweak your platform to fit their js code. In a way, it's a statement of failure on their part, not yours...

Here is a quick look at the six suits we have currently in stock : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You will notice that the "blazer suits" use spalla manica a camicia (shirt sleeve shoulder) and patch pockets, while the other suits use the regular soft shoulder (spalla cadente morbida).
I wrote a short post about it on our blog, if you haven't read it:
