post #1366 of 1726

If you're interested in Pricing, email him. Asking a customer (who may have a different pricing due to location served, relationship with tailor, etc) might not be helpful.

or the customer may know where pricing is posted on the website... why i asked if someone was comfortable sharing, didn't ask/call out a specific individual

I posted the link to the pricing in a previous post on this thread if anyone is still looking for the Sartoria Corcos pricing. He has in fact raised prices a bit, when I went to go see him, I believe the price was 2.8k euros for a suit. It is now 3k. When we spoke, it sounded like he was not interested in raising prices too much, as we talked about some other tailors as well and when we got to some of the higher priced tailors, he made a wincing face and said something like "hmm, they are expensive." I think it is a similar philosophy to the shoemaker in Japan that charges a maximum of 150k yen for a pair of bespoke shoes because that is the maximum that he would spend on a pair of shoes. For better or for worse, that results in people being excluded from being clients on the basis of clients' patience (1.5 years before he starts taking new clients plus the 9-12 month wait time) rather than on the basis of clients' ability to pay (as many on here are suggesting that he should do)

Sartoria Corcos has been a hit these years although I never really know what his house style are / is...

 

His client base also seems to be relatively young (or maybe they are the one that is always active in the internet society)

The stuff I've seen is slimmish, but slightly swelled in the chest. Little to no belly on the lapels, slightly dropped buttoning point, and a slightly longer body than what I've seen from Liverano. Very softly tailored.

It's a nice cut. Really distinctive. I don't know his client base, but the look has obvious appeal to slightly younger guys (younger than 50 or whatever), who want something traditional, but a little different. Something with a bit of "spring" or "snap" to it.

Thanks DWW, 

 

Under this style, I can see the younger client base (which I am still assuming, again, based on the internet) 

 

Good he is stopping new orders as his demand > supply, especially with an emphasize on handwork & craftsmanship, tailors should do less trunk and focusing more on what the client really go them for, the product. 

 

P.S - btw, really nice outcome of your special run

Some tailors end up sourcing the work out in these cases. It seems he's not doing that, which is nice.

From DWW's post on Sartoria Corcos (and from my own conversations with him), it sounds like he does trunk shows primarily to travel. He had mentioned to me last year that he was considering doing a trunk show in NY and possibly SF, and even then he already had plenty of orders, so it wasn't because he needed new business.

I think that is a very modest raising of prices compared to some other hyped tailor. Musella Dembech, for example, in two years raised his prices for a suit by a whopping 1300 euros uhoh.gif

What I've seen from Corcos is very nice apart from the very open quarters, which I find a bit off, even for a florentine tailor.

 

Do you happen to know if Seminara's cut has so open quarters?

You might want to look at their Instagram.

Hi guys,

 

I live in London and would like to order a nice, moderately priced bespoke overcoat for winter. I don't want it too classic because I'm young and wouldn't always just wear it formally, but neither do I want it too far from classic. A nice balance ideally. Any recommendations for bespoke overcoat tailors?

Good description I think, I'd just add that the lapels have no belly at all, in fact most are concave (which I love, I hate bellied lapels). Also, the jackets are maybe a bit shorter than "classic". On mine at least, I would have liked to be a little longer, but he was adamant (which I respect).
