Are the buttons on the shirts mother of pearl? Are they milled flatter or with edges?

Second, for shirt collars, are they fused or with sewn in interlining?

For the pants, is their canvassing in the waistband?

Cheers.

 

Ciao Dynemacron!

 

Sorry I just saw this :-)

 

Thank you for the kind words! Fabric selection takes, in fact, a few months, where Prisca - our head of purchasing - spends most of her time in Italy's best woolmills carefully selecting colours, patterns, compositions and so on.

 

Regarding your questions:

They made of high grade plastic, we will probably add the mother-of-pearl option during 2017. They are slighty concave.

They are half fused (i.e. fused on one side).

 

Quote:

Yes there is! Made in horsehair.

 

Let me know if you have additional questions!

 

Ciao

Riccardo

Special promo worth only if you want to buy some of the 6 items with higher discount. Unfortunately i was not lucky.

 

Usually, style forum members have 15% discount (and there are also  other discount codes).

 

So i have to wait until march.

 

I don't see any advantage in this special promo :(

Well, we have been changing the top discounted fabric on a weekly basis, and we will continue to do so until the end of February, increasing the number of fabrics with higher discounts.

Just subscribe to our newsletter to be informed about the discounted fabrics!

 

Ciao!

Hi Lanieri reps, 

 

Do you think you'll be getting this fabric below or one similar to it soon?  Or generally, when do you start offering the more spring/summer fabrics on the website?  I have an early april birthday and I'd like something that goes well in our Louisiana heat and humidity, dark navy is just brutal so a lighter blue hopsack or fresco is what I'm more interested in. Thank you!

A Review of Lanieri

 

Overall, I have had a very pleasant experience dealing with Lanieri regarding my order of a Loro Piana jacket. In the interest of providing information to my fellow Styleforum members as well as providing credit to where it is due (namely, Riccardo and his team at Lanieri), I feel the need to report back. And so, in the next few paragraphs, I wish to outline my experience and sincere opinions about the ordering process, and, more importantly, the final product.

 

First Things First: About Lanieri

 

But first things first. What do they do? Well, from a quick glance at their site, they offer the usual MTM tailored-ware: suits, jackets, trousers, vests, and shirts. But, unlike some other MTM vendors, they do not offer coats or other accessories. Another differentiating factor, and one that I seem to come across time and time again (for better or for worse) is that Lanieri products are 'Made in Italy'. Although, many would see such a statement to demonstrate quality, I am often quite skeptical of such an inference. In fact, it would merely make me think that a significant portion of the money that I part with, will contribute to a (unnecessary) premium of production costs. But one ought to remember that Italy possesses some of the finest tailors around that produce suits that are uniquely Italian in style. The point is: if you want an Italian cut, you are going to have to do 'Made in Italy'. Naturally, a suit from elsewhere (India, UK, USA), will give you a different style. 

 

What about the price point? Lanieri is priced above other MTM's: Indochino, Black Lapel, etc., but is obviously more affordable than Bespoke offerings. As for the other MTM's, frankly, I haven't tried them. So, I cannot chime in on how they compare. The results would be very interesting! *Edit: But one thing, I ought to mention is that the fabric Lanieri offers is, by far superior, to almost all other MTM's. We are talking about Loro Piana, VBC, etc.

 

Ok. Before I began my order, I wanted to find out a bit more about Lanieri. So, I scoured the web for information and I discovered that they were previously called 'Natural Gentleman' and already had a brief history of doing business in Italy. Upon further scouring, the feedback and opinion of 'Natural Gentleman' was largely positive (although written in Italian). This made me confident enough to go ahead with the order.

 

The Ordering Process

 

This is where Lanieri really shines! The web interface is intuitive and the customer service is friendly and effective.

 

Like other online MTM's, you provide bodily measurements as well as answer some questions regarding your posture. The whole process was comprehensively guided by videos integrated on their website. As a brief digression: although the lady in the video is very attractive, there were times where the actors in the video felt unnatural and corny (you will know what I mean if you watch it). You can also visit pop-up stores in Milan and London to be measured in-person.

 

 

After I had submitted the measurements, Riccardo and his team e-mailed me to double check some measurements and provide some feedback. Though, I have very little experience in online MTM's, Riccardo and his team were very professional, patient and ultimately guided me to make several amendments that improved the fit. This was one aspect that made my experience very pleasant.

 

The Jacket

 

The packaging was excellent. The jacket came in a sturdy box that, surely, would have protected its content from whatever DHL, Fedex, or UPS could throw at it (literally and metaphorically). The jacket was accompanied by a beautiful, thick wooden coat hanger (I must apologise for not having it with me for pictures) and a garment bag.

 

For a first attempt, I thought that the resulting fit was quite good. Obviously, there is excess fabric at the back and some rumpling at the shoulders (though, I wonder to what extent this is caused by the jacket being lightly structured). The fabric is a 'Loro Piana Hopsack' -- perfect for the summer. The handiwork, I would say is quite decent -- although I think there could be some improvement here, if Lanieri really wants to take Styleforum by storm. However, frankly, for the price point, it is a solid offering. 

 

 

 

 

 

During my preliminary research, I found out that Lanieri produces half-canvassed jackets. And, upon in-person inspection of my jacket, it was indeed half-canvassed. Of course, full-canvas would have made for a better product. But, alas, we are once reminded of Lanieri's affordable prices. However, as a future note, an option for full-canvas, would probably appeal well to Styleforum members.

 

The button-holes are high quality and stitched well. And in my preference for a bit of sartorial-ness -- I opted for a shade of red on the lapel.

 

Notice the prick stitching and the beautiful lapel roll.

 

 

As you can see, the jacket was very lightly structured. It makes sense as it is a Hopsack fabric for the summer. They offer personal embroidery (which I painted white as to hide my personal details).

 

 

The buttons are alright (nothing to write home about). But they offer an extensive variety of buttons, in both horn and polyester.

 

 

On a whole, Styleforum members should take Lanieri as what it is. A good-value, Italian all-rounder that you won't be disappointed with. Give it a try (and report back)!

 

(I never really felt the need to explicitly provide a disclaimer, but I see it so often on Styleforum such that there must be a good reason for it! So here it goes: I am not affiliated with Lanieri nor do I gain any compensation, financial or otherwise, in promoting their products.)

Lanieri is a great option for those who can't afford a bespoke suit and want to have the best of Italy. Said that, I want to give you a special discount code for a 100 USD/EUR discount sitewide: "LANIERI200"

The new spring/summer collection is coming on the 1st of March! We have increased our assortment, especially in the entry price fabrics :-)

I can already tell you that there is a Marzotto fabric, 75% wool and 25% mohair that is very similar to the one in the pictures.

Gentlemen, our new Spring & Summer collection is finally online!

 

 

By popular demand, we finally added also LARGER lapels! Simply select them on the very first customization step:

 

 

Last but not least, thanks to the recent dollar&pound vs euro exchange rate decrease we have reduced our prices in dollars for suits by 70 $, and in pounds by 30 £!

post #253 of 261

Anyone here have some experience to share about Assoluto fabric from Lanieri.

 

Description says it have a special carbon in fabric.

I don't mind about magnetic field protection, but keeping the cold out and shields from the heat can be interesting.

 

I want to buy a jacket and don't know if i go with Assoluto Biella Blue or with Super 180´s. 

Any thoughts?

Hello. I'm new to the forum and wanted to ask a question of Riccardo. I'm awaiting delivery of my third suit from Lanieri. I was very happy with the first two (save for some initial problems with the first jacket, which were very quickly fixed - thank you) and have no doubt that the third will be just as great. The service is also very good in my local atelier in Bologna. My question is whether you will be introducing the option to have side tabs on the trousers. Maybe it's me, but I dislike wearing a belt or braces and prefer to have side tabs to adjust the waist slightly given my propensity to grow and shrink in that zone by an inch or so from time to time. I think this option is the only thing missing from your collection - and if it was to be introduced I would be inclined to buy from Lanieri exclusively, given the fantastic fit/quality/price ratio.

Thanks,

JT

Ciao JT!

 

Sorry I just saw this... sometimes I don't receive the notification in my inbox and I end up missing posts!

Anyhow we are currently working on quite a few things that have been requested often here, including side tabs!

They would be available by September! This may sound like a lot of time for such a small feature, but when you have to make sure that works perfectly with different type of fabrics and linings it's not that much time. We are also working to introduce made to measure chinos by the summer, and last but not least: a fully canvassed option!

 

Let me know if you need more information!
