It makes all the difference here; century after century, from times immemorial. 

The textile industry in Italy has really gone down the hill; you have entire regions that look now like ghost towns in American Western movies. A decade ago, these same towns were producing whatever you could have wished for. 
Similar with Slovenia; only worse; they had 4 shoe factories, a highly skilled textile industry (producing even for world known brands). The reformed communist holding the power have financially squeezed the companies till the ruin (financial levers through state owned banks). Nothing is left.

You probably mean Slovenian factories such as Mura? They did make decent suits. I know, I'm from Yugoslavia (Serbia, to be precise).

Mura was the biggest. (when the reformed communists sucked out all the money, it was sold to a British investor who ruined what was left).

Labod, Rašica, Almira, Svilanit, Beti, Lisca, Polzela, Prebold, and other smaller ones. 

 

Italians have other problems; their business used the money to celebrate itself, instead of investing. Carrera jeans, Rifle, Benetton, Missoni,..

Oh man, I still have two Rasica sweaters. They have to be at least 15 years old.... 😉

You're not the only one; their knitted pullovers were just phenomenal; not even the brands selling for 400$ have such designs. 

Especially the pieces made in small series for export were really high quality and highly designed.

I have some 8 pullovers left :)))  golden reserves :D

Cross-post from the French bespoke thread: for casual friday, an Cifonelli military-style jacket, panta pants, spacca napoli tie and koji suzuki shoes.

@Andy57 how do you like Rumisu's squares? They look pretty interesting from what I've seen.

 

@patrickBOOTH perfect. Awesome lapels. 

 

@daddyblitz As uncomfortable as I feel referring to your as daddy anything while I type this, don't be offended by Caustic's reply. He's a very brusque in his critique, but he's not wrong. Your rig is VERRRYYYY tight, to the point where it does not look comfortable. I have suits that are slim, though looser than yours, which feel uncomfortable doing anything in, up to and including breathing. I don't know your measurements, but you're probably bigger than me, and I cannot do RTW in any exceptions, without spending a bundle in alterations just to make the fit somewhat decent. I think MTM would suit you well :slayer:

 

@agjiffy Not a huge fan of the jacket (everything else is glorious), but I LOVE that you consider this casual!

I rather ignore him as he reminds me of my gf when she's on her days.
As far as the suit goes ,even if i go up a size my bicep section will still look the same,believe or not the suit does not fit uncomfortable at all,which is weird bc it does look tight, however i agree MTM is a good/best option.

If someone who critiques you more bluntly than you like is going to be viewed as though he's having a period, I think you're probably not in the best place. Wearing a suit here isn't going to get mindless exultation (instagram sure will). Most folks here critique the parts (of which fit is included) that go into the entire fit.

 

Caustic is more blunt than I am, but your reaction (and childish name calling) to his perfectly legitimate critique is in rather poor taste.

I'm not going into this specific theme; however, I might add that there are far worse things being thrown around (by some Asians) and the gentlemen policing go for a hiding.

He implied once that he did not like the fit ,Isaid ok.
I continued to a have a conversation with another gentleman, and he butted in and , kept talking nonsence (then dont wear it) etc again when i was not talking to him,im sorry but there is a limit to some things to say ive been following this page and thread for a while enough to know im not the only one that gets annoyed ,other gentlemen advice me on what they thought about the fit without being annoying.

You post here to show your fits and have people celebrate or critique for better. No one comments with the intent to make you look bad. We all are here with the same idea. Dressing well.

I think that photo was really funny and just right for a Friday afternoon :))

 

we're all different and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't :D 

We just have to try not to make feel bad each other.

 

It's really late here; I think I'll navigate towards my bed; good night big guy! :)

I only have this one square, which is the design of people "flying" toward a spaceship, in yellow. I like it. The design is interesting, the silk is light and somewhat gauzy. If you like quirky designs, and I do, I'd recommend them.

just out of curiosity, when was the last time you've given a look at the casual style section, what you wear today? 

post #38715 of 44050

@ericgereghty Rumisu's designs are very fun...the feeling of their silk is phenomenal. I have quite a few of their squares.
