post #526 of 1727

Sanders, really love the brown coat could you tell me more about the cloth please ? Looks pretty heavy and that's so great.

 

Braddock, it's a light grey flannel ? Just a bit to many cloth on the right chest, but it's the first try.

By the looks of it, his tailor is looking into this in the picture, no? Nothing unusual about that at the first fitting I reckon.

Yes, light grey flannel from VBC for Caccioppoli. That's right, but it shouldn't be a problem to fix that and it's my first suit from this tailor.

Sanders' coat is casentino from T.A.C.S.

Of course it will not be a problem at all :fistbump:

Exactly.

And as Braddock already said, the coat is a brown casentino wool by T.A.C.S., heavy and warm, perfect for the nasty Berlin winter.

It does look pretty great.

Winter is coming, and as far as I understand it, that's no laughing matter if you have to walk around the cold and windy streets of Berlin! ;)

The back on that navy jacket is really impressive.

Absolutely, actually I could use it already. First week of November it should be finished. *fingers crossed*

Thanks, I'm really happy with it, especially for the first fitting ever from this tailor + my difficult posture.

Quick questions to Corcos' customers : does he speak English ? Also would someone know if he is going to be open at the end of the year/start of January ? I know Italy is closed in august and I guess it could be the same for the new year period but since I should be in the area from 29 December to 5th of January, might as well ask. Will contact him too but I don't know if he speaks english...
Good job btw to the shibumi boys keeping this thread alive smile.gif

Yes, he speaks English. Not good, but enough. I guess he will be in Florence during that time, but I'm not sure if he will accept a new order. Actually he planned an order cut off for 2016, because he's totally booked out and has to finish a lot of stuff. But anyway, just send him an email or contact him on Facebook.

He actually speaks better English than he lets on (I think). Never had any problems with communication. He's just not very chatty (he kinda is if you get to know him, but during fittings he's extremely focused).

I really look forward to my next fitting in January with him. Niels and Ben, you guys better not crash my fitting again! smile.gif

He also mention to me that he might consider not accepting new clients for a while because he's so busy.

Would love to see the jacket if convenient to post a pic. I have been considering something in a similar pattern.

He'll be there. I know b/c I asked for a fitting some time around then.

 

I'd ask in advance, though, if he takes new clients right now, as others said.
