post #1336 of 1727

Several weeks ago, I was taking our baby boy out for a walk in a stroller.  Turned out one of our neighbors was starting a clothing company.  I was impressed, so I ordered a sport coat in Ariston's double-faced jersey.  Just got pics of the progress:

Yesterday I, together with some shirts, took delivery of three pieces of my new obsession: bespoke polo shirts. I had one trial made, and with these additional three I'm pretty stocked up. The cotton is the Machu Picchu range from Canclini and they're finished unfused with handmade button holes and mother of buttons smile.gif

They look very nice! Who made them?

Interesting. Their website copy reads tactfully vague, but the operation seems thought out. I assume half-canvas made in China? At ~$700 (for a SC) with shipping and $100 in alterations included, it does give me pause, but that sounds cool for more casual jackets. Intrigued to see how it shakes out.

Thank you, sir. Whitcomb & Shaftesbury in London. The cutter, John McCabe is fantastic.

 

My next bespoke projects are a mid grey flannel DB, either an RAF blue flannel/slightly more traditional blue flannel SB, a navy window pane SB in wool fresco and a navy DB wool fresco. Looking forward to these and will post more pics during the process itself.

Thanks, and indeed they are. They're made by Camiceria Artigiana Carmen, a small shirt tailor from Turin run by a mother and her daughter. Their website is here: http://www.bespoketailoring.eu (I bet they bought the domain very early) and there's a write of from Torsten here: http://sartorialnotes.com/2013/11/26/testing-bespoke-shirts-from-turin-22/

Any chance we can see bigger pic ? It is too small for my aging eyes :fu:

 

Same as the Liverano, this style matches you very well !

 

Just one thing, the leg opening looks a bit too wide ? Or the effect of linen ?

Sorry I thought you could click to enlarge them. Will upland to bigger size in the future.

I need that kind of leg opening because I have elephant legs. This linen suit was first delivered in April. But the pents were too narrow, especially when I want to wear OTC socks. So I sent all the trousers back and have them widened. Just took the delivery of them and now I'm happy with the leg opening.

I think the pants will seem less wide if they are cut longer. They seem to be at or above the ankle right now.

These are from Bettanin and Venturi, a 556th generation cobbler and his wife started the company outside of Milan. We had a nice break in today. After 8 hours I felt a spot on my toe, but otherwise fit was great
