I'd likely buy and SC if you made it to Toronto.

Also, I would highly advocate a stop in Los Angeles!

One question I have after playing around with the designer.
What's the difference between a Jacket and a Sports Coat? I can see that designing a Jacket offers many more options than designing a SC. But the fabrics are pretty much the same and they cost also the same.

Quick question for Riccardo: Is it possible to have the lapel width modified or do you typically work with set pattern? 

 

PS liking the jacket more each time I wear it!

This. I like my lapel width around 3.5" to 3.75" and was wondering the same thing.

Hi @Galix 

 

so a jacket is structured: you have pads on the shoulders, lining, undercollar melton and so on. A sport coat, on the other hand, is completely unstructured, no padding at all on the shoulders, no lining ecc... so of course the designing options are fewer

@patliean1 @akoustas

 

thanks for your question. At the moment it's not possible to change the width of the lapel, as we are working with set patterns.

We hope to introduced this feature with the fully canvassed option, so probably at the beginning of 2016.

 

Ciao!

Thanks for the quick reply.
Actually the SC being unconstructed makes it even more interesting. Well done!

Hi All

  I've been lurking here on SF for a while, and have greatly appreciated the insights and advice on the forum!

 

  While I've had a "meh" wardrobe thanks primarily to a casual work environment, I'm headed to a new position that will require a nice investment in apparel.

 

  My challenge is, I really don't care for the "salesman" experience.  Too often I feel I'm being pushed toward something the salesman likes (or being upsold), or they don't like spending the time I'd prefer to really examine the options and quality--I can be picky, to be fair--or, because I often shop in casual attire, getting the brushoff (happened in Nordstrom's just last week). Finally, my body shape requires a lot of tailoring to get a nice fit, so there's always that hassle built in.

 

  So I've been interested in MTM/bespoke.. and have been reading the Lanieri thread with interest as well as hanging out on their website getting a feel for their product and options.. and took the plunge.  Last night ordered the classic Navy blue suit and a couple shirts.  Interestingly, my spouse enjoyed the process, and really liked helping me pick options for the suit and shirts -- she wondered if Lanieri was going to make women's clothing as well!

 

  If they deliver as anticipated, this will be a perfect solution!  Fine fabrics, quality product, and the tailoring built in, plus convenience of ordering online (which is pretty much how I shop anyways).

 

  A couple minor notes: on the otherwise outstanding Lanieri website, the little question-mark icons (for instance, under Suit Details, where it lists Seasonality, Weight, etc), when you click those icons the explanations are in Italian, not English, even though the webpage is set to English.  And in the "props" department, I appreciate how the Lanieri team has been visible not just on SF but other websites as well -- they are clearly working hard to establish a positive presence and rapport and that shows a good commitment to this delivery model.

 

  Once I get the order delivered (Late Jun/early Jul) I will come back and report on the results!

 

Tim

Hi Tim,

 

first of all thanks for you order! Your spouse is not the only one asking us to do women's clothing as well, we are thinking about it but women apparel it's like doing another job altogether, with complete different challenges - however with big plus as well, like we get to pick female models instead of male models... 

 

Thank you also for your notes, we will correct the translating bogus shortly!!!

 

Congratulations on your new position!

 

Ciao

Riccardo
