Yes, you don't need them at all.

I would say that goes for most of the hand stitching, like your handrolled edges on a pocket square or a hand-stitched lapel buttonhole. They're things that one may or may not appreciate but they don't add any functionality, simply aesthetics.

On the other hand, having hand attached collars and sleeveheads, for example, do add something. The tailors are able to shape those round areas better, including the extra material / shirring, so that it will feel better than one that is attached by machine. It takes extra time (and therefore cost) but it has utility. Of course, they almost always reinforce the seams afterwards with machine stitch to ensure a solid construction - but the hand-stitching still shows and is something one can appreciate as a mark of fine craftsmanship.

It is quite impressive to see these people work - we visited both Mazzarelli and Inglese workshops in southern Italy and saw them work. It's quite inspiring and makes you want to give these guys more work so they can keep the craft and skilled manpower going.

It's just pick stitching, decorative.

 

Caveat Emptor: Vox is talking about Borrelli not Mazzarelli.

Hi G,
is this the "Shawl collar" or "Pub Jacket" model? I realize not necessarily the exact color that you carry. Thanks

More likely MTM than bespoke. G. Inglese does a lot of bespoke work. We can work on a trunk show / measuring event with those guys for the winter or spring, if there is sufficient interest.

Neither. That is what Inis Meain calls "shawl collar cardigan". The pub jacket feels like a sweater but is cut like a jacket (notched lapels), the shawl collar sweater we have has a horn toggle closure, no buttons. here are pics of both - click for larger pics

That's a cracking price for that quality of cloth and that much handwork.

I've always been fit above all else so I've always preferred machine made bespoke to anything else but, for the first time in ages, I'm tempted.

Definitely agree, that's the price of a RTW Zegna shirt. Humble indeed...

That shirt is awesome, definitely going to have to pick one up. Now, I'm really looking forward to what sorts of things will be available in spring and summer. :dozingoff:

What do you guys want to see for spring/summer? I'm thinking cotton/linen mix, maybe a light chambray?
