If I am not mistaken, aren't tailors supposed to widen the sleeve of one arm to adjust for wearing watches? Not that this particular tailor did it for that reason since it looks the same on both arms.

Do you go to the same tailoring school as sartrollidinapoli?

No.Why would you come to that conclusion? This was based on something a tailor told me when I was being measured for a MTO blazer.

Because it's not correct; there's no "supposed to"; you can request to widen a shirt sleeve to accommodate a watch if you feel so inclined..

That is on shirt cuffs.

 

What tailors have to do is to calculate the  jacket sleeve  as well, otherwise looks bad proportioned as on this case.

 

Do not answering the other offender from my block list.

I generally like a knee with a 1.5" diameter wider than the bottom, the pleats are probably giving extra bag to these particular trousers which is a bit jarring with what? A 15" bottom diameter?

I don't like wide sleeves.

 

 

Not familiar with inches, but is clearly bad proportioned and even is bad hemmed, even for a rtw shop, the trouser is badly hemmed, see the breaks over the shoe, totally off for a bespoke trouser “good job” says others... ,  but is obvious for us on this that the trouser are both pretty bad.  Nice taste if you don´t like unreal unproportioned sleeves. No one who knows what are talking about does.

Whoops. I meant to say shorten not widen. My memory came back. Still find the sleeves ro be a bit curious considering I have had more tailored sleeves from low end MTM jackets. I feel that in these cases, it would be better to communicate what kind of fit you want with the tailor as opposed to letting him do whatever he wants.

@Weakmonday

how did you find the shop of VecchioDrappiere in Milan? Good stuff?

 

any of you people visited the shop? thoughts?

 

I ask because I believe part of a great suit is a good cloth. Too many people focus 100% on the tailor and five zero importance to the cloth. I am on the 60-40 proportion

 

@SartodiNapolion that note some of your barbera jacket cloth looks great, I might be touch to get some

Hey @whippet... it's got a pretty wide selection of stuff so I'd recommend stopping by if you're in the area.  Also remember to work the numbers on the calculator a bit after you get a price quote (if you like that kind of thing).
