Thanks !    Although most of the credit goes to Antonio, Antonio and Dionisio, the three master tailors at Sartoria Formosa.   I just pick fabrics :)

I just watched SKYFALL with my wife last weekend. 

I want to the that he wore...but it probably won't fit me. 

I want the aviator shades that he wore. 

Are you hooked on ebay?

did you not see my fit today? all kinds of low to medium contrast up in there.

also.....

This?    It's as high-contrast as it gets.  Almost black and white

So I've exhausted all my resources in trying to track down the brown version - what do you guys think about the red? A worthy pick-up as a close-second or a pass because it wouldn't be as versatile?

post #4792 of 37482

too red. pass.

post #4793 of 37482
i like it. its very similar i think to a tie i wore a few weeks ago that i love very much.

i have not been following closely enough to know what brown version you were looking for, but below is a great brown option, brown and light blue is maybe the best tie color combo ever.

If you like red ties, that's about as good as they get.

I think that the red and the brown are very different ties. To me that red tie borders on too light but it's always hard to tell from a monitor. Either way it is more in good taste than a lot of red ties I see out in the wild.

Well it's tagged a 40R -

shoulders : 50 cm ( 19.7")
armpits : 60 cm ( 23.64")
undersleeve : 44 cm ( 17.34")
total lenght : 105 cm ( 41.37")

Might be a bit big on you but as an overcoat they should have a bit of breathing room.

I'm not hooked on ebay. Maybe I was when I first discovered the world of used/vintage menswear and went a little crazy and made some mistakes. I'm done stupidly spending but I keep an eye on a few sellers that usually have some good items. A lot of times if you just search New with tags or new you can get some good deals on new items marked down. Or if I hear about a new brand I'll check the bay to see whats out there. As in this instance with Sartoria Partenopea and the jacket I posted.

We all learn thru our mistakes. I hope I have because I am done paying retail for brand name suits (says the wife and my head) and there's so many great resources at hand via SF to make better informed purchases. But I still want a bad@ss RLPL grey suit. But I think this will be just as good, if not better.

this is not what I meant at all...  Low/medium contrast between shirt, tie and suit.   You're advanced enough in the menswear style to start thinking outside of the dark tie box

That Formosa is going to be a very, very different suit from the RLPL. Like, almost polar opposite.

RLPL is generally heavily structured stuff. Formosa is classic soft Neapolitan tailoring.

Not really comparable IMO.

Thank you for that. 

While I have tried on some RLPL suits, I do not have anything to reference on the Formosa except the pictures. 

Forgive me but when you say "generally heavily structured", do you mean the way they're constructed or fabrics are heavy?

I am quite interested in the Formosa suit but would like to know how it compares.
