HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2042

@stanleyvanburen, that's a beautiful suit, and I love the cut of the pants, but I feel like the jacket makes you look a tad top heavy particularly around the middle. Maybe AAS is right and a lower button stance would help, or maybe a more padded shoulder? Not sure.

Are you serious? I like the cut of Inglese, but just compare the quality of the fabrics and the hand work. It's no contest, Kiton is better. But still not the best.

Oh oh, overloaded? Don't tell me you're starting to go the SF way... wink.gif

I think it doesn't harm Stanley, a little bit more bulk on top. Agreed on the button stance. Slightly lower would have made it perfect.

No worries, I'll make sure to overload next time!

So who would you put above Kiton? Attolini? Charvet?

Really? I haven't seen much, if any, difference in the quality of handwork between the two and Kiton is almost triple the price.

DT, I have that shirt and it is one of my favorites. Such a great fabric.

You should take a closer look, then. ;)

At least on my Ingleses only the sleeve inset is handsewn, the rest is done by machine. Very neatly done, true. But on my Kiton's virtually every seam is done by hand, as well as the buttonholes. Is it worth triple the price? That I cannot tell.

And, as DT says, I rate Attolini shirts even higher. Best RTW shirts, IMO. Charvet, I don't know. From what I've seen, they don't appeal to me at all.

Hm, I would land somewhere between you here. There are definately more handsewn details on my Ingleses than just sleeve insets (in particular on their more formal white and blue shirts), but it's also true that there are more handsewn details on my Kitons and Attolinis. But handstitching may be an important quality marker, but not the only one. Btw, dont know where you buy your expensive Kitons, but in Europe they are not more than double the price of a Inglese. And if you are prepared to buy from previous seasons you can of course get both Kiton and Attolini at more reasonable prices (understanding of course that for 99% of the world's population the perception of a "reasonable" price for a shirt is wildly differen). But people like us that frequent forums such as this have lost that perspective long ago...

It would appear that NYC is getting a wet, not a white Christmas this season, hence repeats on the raincoat usage. Note also that today's photos are missing the trademarked Crusty Crouch, as that photo came out badly today. Apologies from the management . . .

I'm I understanding your list at the end correctly when I read your jacket was done-up by Kent Wang? If so, are those the 4.25" extra large lapels? They look amazing on you, and may have sold me on getting a similar jacket made up.

As always, your look is fantastic.
