Unless that other city was less than a 60 or 90 minute easy commute, I would not do it. Bespoke in general involves inviting hassles. Crossing state or city lines to see a tailor, especially a travelling tailor, is asking for trouble and aggravation.

Perhaps a dig at me?

Wasn't it one of the members on here who was organising this trunk show?

Great to have the chance to chat to Gennaro yesterday. He's doing great work.

Is Gennaro related to Ciro Paone of Kiton fame?

His work impresses me more and more. Would love to commission something when funds allow it.

Had a great fitting with Gennaro on Saturday. So far I received a navy DB sports coat and a three piece suit. However, both needed some adjustments, primarily due to my shifting body weight.

Here's the latest commission, a DB flannel suit.

Looking good.

I saw this suit in old Tonik at the fitting stage that looked very nice. The fabric is certainly something else.

Every suit should be made in tonik!

My own experience is that many customers ends up following the cutter in his new ventures, not only when they set up on their own, but often even when they change Sartoria they work for. The person that introduced my family to my tailor had followed him across three Sartoria until he set up on his own.

He is not the first to leave Rubinacci and start a successful independent career and will not be the last

Yeah that's why you keep cutters and tailors locked away from clients!
