Hi everybody!

I received my shirt !!!

Great work: French seams, hard collar, great fit, button zampa di gallina and nice package.





My only regret is that the buttons are not MOP. Is it a project?

Great job!

Thanks for the review @bmartin!
 
Yes, we have been thinking to introduce MOP buttons, the problem is that if you have your shirt ironed using a press ironing machine by someone that literally slams the thing on the shirt they sometimes dent. We will probably going to introduce them as an option for our incoming SS collection!
 
Speaking of shirts...only until tomorrow you can one shirt for free if you order a suit!.
Select one suit and one shirt, then enter the discount code HAPPY-CHRISTMAS at the check-out.The shirt will be free!

 

Looking forward to hearing your always precious advice!

Ciao

Riccardo

I ordered a sample book of fabrics and was sent a voucher for the cost (£15) but I accidentally deleted the email containing the voucher code. I spoke to customer services and they said they would resend me the code but that was a week or more ago and I'm yet to receive anything.

Last Sunday September 27th, more than 37,000 stylishly-dressed gentlemen in over 400 cities were driving their motorcycles to raise funds for prostate cancer research and awareness. 

 

Obviously we (me and some Lanieri’s friend) were proudly there in Milan.

 

Take a look at our photo by Andrea Benedetti. We were driving our motorcycles all around Milan wearing special Lanieri suits with our friends Riccardo Pozzoli and Fabio Attanasio (the guy behind thebespokedudes.com)

 

Riccardo Pozzoli (wearing our Green birdseye pinstripe suit)

 

 

 

Fabio Attanasio (wearing Loro Piana's charcoal grey blue striped fabric)

 

 

Yours truly (wearing a Reda fabric now unfortunately discountined). I've built the bike myself during university, starting from a 1975 wrecked Honda CB500 Four, then heavily modified (now it's 605 cc, with racing camshaft and much more... not exactly street legal :D )... took me 3 years to complete!

 

 

 

 

and the rest of the team!!!

I didn't see any coverage of the Distinguished Gentlemen's ride on the forum, did any of you guys partecipate?

 

Ciao

I haven't been keeping up with this thread. But, Riccardo, those are some beautiful bikes and photographs. And it seems like Lanieri is getting even stronger on the online MTM front with its new products.

Let me know if you have additional questions,

Riccardo + co.,

I wanted to get your thoughts on my primary reason for not yet using Lanieri - body measurements vs. existing clothing measurements. As someone who's dabbled in MTM with some successes and some losses, but has finally gotten a set of hard-won clothing measurements that seem to work, I feel like I'm back to square one with providing body measurements. Also, for example, your in-house "tweaks" - like leg width, slim-normal-wide - are subjective and give me just enough pause to not pull the trigger (is their "wide" my "normal"? etc.) To me, I feel there's just enough gulf between what I've invested a lot of time and effort and now know works for me (my shirt measurements, for example) and Lanieri's body measurements that it's preventing me from even trying.

A quick example - I'm particular about my sleeve length, I've settled on a 35.75 as being perfect for me but it's probably a bit longer than normal. I suspect a shirt made from the measurements I provided would probably ship with a 35 or 35.25 sleeve that I wouldn't care for.

I was curious on what your take was and to pass along at least my perspective on your process, I suspect I'm not alone. Had Lanieri been the first service I'd ever tried, it would be a different story (and I would probably be complaining to other MTM companies "why don't you use body measurements like Lanieri?")

ps - all that said, your guide to taking measurements is the absolute best I've ever seen (regardless of whether it's for body or garment measuring).

thank you for your feedback first of all. Most of the the things you have pointed out have a specific technical reason, that are not entirely intuitive until someone really understand how made to measure works. For example, you were mentioning:

The problem is that it depends strongly on the overall build of a customer, that comes from the measurements taken after the suit is customized. We should communicate this better (at least give an expected size range).

That would be an easy fix, simply add your preferences in the notes during checkout and we will take care of this. Online MTM requires an additional communicative effort compared to other e-commerce, both from the seller and from the customer.

Rest assure that for us every feedback is precious, actually if you have more of them, to help us improve our communication, don't hesitate to go ahead, I'm all ears. For example, first thing on monday I will improve the leg width part, providing more details on the expected size.

 

We have studied a lot what other MTM companies are asking in terms of body measurements, and I think we have adapted to what it seems now an "industry standard". On top of this body measurements will be then checked using our algorithm, if we spot any inconsistency the customer will be emailed asking to double check specifically what seems odd.

 

We have been testing garment measuring as well in the past, but in our experience is not the way to go, as it is basically impossible to replicate a garment made with a different "blueprint" with a few measurements. Just to give you a sense on how critical this can be, to make a proper job with garment measurements we will need the precise size and position of the armhole on the jacket, and to provide that a customer will have to destroy his own jacket! On top of this, fabric stiffness or looseness play a very important role on the overall feeling of the fit, impossible to predict even with the actual fabric available to be tested!

 

Happy to discuss this furthermore!

 

Have a nice weekend everyone, ciao

Riccardo

Gentlemen,

 

following up @razl feedbacks, we have stated more specifically what leg width size range you should expect upon ordering a pair of trousers in our configurator. Specifically:

 

  • slim from 6 1/2 inch to 7 in (16.5 cm to 18.5 cm)
  • medium from 7 in to 8 in (18.5 cm to 20.5 cm)
  • wide from 8 in to 9 1/2 in (20.5 cm to 24.5 cm)

 

Moreover, we would also add a note field at the end of the configurator for any other additional request or inquiry.

 

Ciao!

Riccardo
