Napoli it is.

Save for BnT?

If you need to fill wardrobe holes now and want to do it for minimal expense, the OTR fit on that Napoli is very good.  

 

You probably get a better fit and better fabric (or at least, more choice in fabric) going MTM with Samuelsohn or bespoke with BnT, but those are a whole different price/process ballgame.

I too visited SuSu on Thr evening, trying on a Lazio, a Sienna, a Havana, and a La Spalla. The only one I have pictures of us the first, the Lazio. I think the Sienna, with lesser shoulder padding, looked better.

At the time I disliked the massively roomy back, which I didn't like even after the suggested alteration in the third picture below (because of bunching on the wings, near my arms).







But after my first fitting at another MTM place (posted earlier on this thread, here), I'm thinking this was perhaps the better of the two. Maybe as @Claghorn was saying, getting my dropped shoulder accounted for would fix the bunching on the wings? What do you guys think?

Gentlemen, I acquire you're help. I will be visiting London during Eastern and would like to know of some good hotels to stay in. While I have been to London before, this is a completely different trip with other preferences. Most important is placement and safety, of course. I would like it to be as central as possible at the best price possible (of course). Preferrably walking distance to central places (5-10 minutes). I will travel with siblings and wife-to-be and won't spend much time at the hotel, thus safety and position is of more importance than comfort. I don't require anything fancy, to make myself clear.

I will get back to you gentlemen later regarding places to visit etc later when I have a hotel booked. Thanks.

Oops. I don't get notifications often. This is Minnis 0656. I think Greg offered it recently at NMWA.

BnT is no longer an option for me. They are too expensive if I go with H&S or the likes of it. That Samuelson mtm seems enticing but I need to fill holes quick and Napoli seems to be it. I shall go back with a dress shirt on and not that thick winter shirt. Or maybe I should just order the dang suit to my haus.

I did notice that the button stances were always too high.

Noodles is not a nice person but Noodles would like to help a nice person.

The kid is in grad school and is in need of a suit. He wears the same black worn out suit that he cannot even button up. His shoes are worn out. He wears the same tie every week. He part times at a bakery shop and his parents are... don't want to get religious... missionaries so they do not provide financial support. So here is what I would ask from gentlemen who may have a menswear item that no longer fits him or just doesnt want it:
- 46R suit
- ties
- shoes (will update with size)

I know this kind of thing has been done for a person going in for a job interview but this kid has to wear a suit once a week for his volunteer work.

Ah, BnT pricing is not inclusive of fabric?

That would change my perspective on their pricing. 

post #34556 of 37428
BnT pricing includes fabric, with slight variations relative to fabric quality, ie one suit I commissioned was $100 more expensive than another because it was made up in a pricier fabric
post #34557 of 37428
interesting - so it's only additional for certain premium fabrics?

My convo w/ a receptionist in 2015 went something like:
Hello?
Hello.
I want a suit and was wondering how much something like that wud cost if I used H&S, LP, or a fabric in that level.

That would run you about $3,000. But we have fabric that are just as good and can bring the price down.

Okay, can you do all you need to do in 3 to 4 weeks?

Usually, we ask for more time but we can get 3 "fittings" and ship you your suit upon completion.

Okay, thanks!

Good, you are asking for trouble using a tailor half way across the globe.

I am calling Will on Tuesday.
If he's got a houndstooth in stock, he can take my money and the hardwood floors.
