I danno. It may just be me, but I don't mind someone speaking their mind, blunt though it may be...maybe this fella is a serial crap talker (in which case I'd agree about being put off by him), though I think that's a bit of a leap going off the above post.

 

I don't think there's anything wrong with that jacket, but the roll of the lapel looks a bit over the top to my eye, to the point where they (lapels) just look too small.

 

Admittedly, I'm not generally a fan of the 3 roll 2, so my dislike for the image is tied to my bias.

Sh*t talking is more common I guess among the Italian tailors. (Ex - Luca Rubinacci bashing his old head cutter Paone on Instagram)

God, that is so funny. I really doubt he would have typed it himself, though, as he does't speak one word of English. Moreover, his assistant's English is really broken, so I kind of doubt he would phrase a sentence along the lines of "in my humble opinion" – but who knows. Funny though, as you probably know Guida used to work for Liverano – indeed on one of the sartorial travel reports from Naples from a few years back you can see him at the cutting board.

Going on your ex-employer's blog and bad-mouthing their product would be exceedingly unprofessional, even if the jacket were bad, which it's not.

 

Being Italian is no excuse.

 

If that comment really emanated from Guida, then as a person he is to be reviled. I hope it's not the case.

 

A true professional speaks through their own product. Nothing else needs to be said.

Not unlike overzealous teenagers given their first access to Instagram, Italian tailors have no clue how to handle social media. What used to be smoky back room, client/tailor discussions, a la barbershop shit talking, have now bled into the public domain as tailors and their staff make off-handed comments without any concept of who will see. It's also likely they don't care. Italian tailors, particularly Southern Italian tailors, bash one another all the time. If you can't stand for a little chirping then stick with the Brits whose brand of sarcasm and first-language mastery of English make their barbs far more subtle and dry.

It's also weird to me that you guys would care. If a tailor does right by you and makes a great product, who cares what they have to say to/about their peers (in public or otherwise).

What would be entertaining is if he was actually joking because theyre on good terms and hes actually just teasing liverano "bro - that shit is terrible, I can do better" but they actually just troll each other and we're taking it out of context.

Ahh, didn't realize it was a former employer receiving the comment. In that case, unless it was a joke, it is definitely unbecoming

Marking out the buttonholes as part of finishing the jacket of a suit for me. The cloth is London Lounge Brisa, the tailor is Steed.

With Steed? We've spec'd out a sort-of shooting jacket, which is how we are referring to it. Using the Green Tween with Crimson Windowpane test length I have, this will be a SB two-button jacket with a box pleat in the back and a half-belt, and bellows pockets at the side. I was considering having a quilted pad on the left shoulder (I'm left handed), but as I would almost certainly never actually shoot a gun while wearing the jacket, I decided that was a little too precious. It should be ready for a fitting in June.

Love the fabric. I got a SC with VBC Cloth that looks exactly the same.
Is it just me or are the soulders a bit too broad?
