Please forgive my ignorance, Magnifico, what are those big folds at the top of the sleeve? Are those normal?

In NL, the standard line of La Vera is being sold for less than Kiton prices. I find that they are nicely made and finished, although the stylistic choices made by the stores here are atrocious, such as the overly pleated shoulders and spalla camicie on a suit.. combined with a 150's or higher count lightweight wool.

Indeed, the details on the "limited Edition" coat is cheesy and over the top, but many here in NL would love it, cause it screams 'handwork' and 'look at me' appeal...

I can understand having a preference for a certain buttonhole shape, but calling all straight lapel holes "ridiculous" is writing off an awful lot of tailors and labels and a bit extreme, surely...

:tomasso:, I mean

It's interesting that that guy who wrote The Suit put La Vera Sartoria Napoletana in a class of its own in terms of RTW suit make (IIRC), or it at least was the only RTW name I remember him citing.

They do very nice work, and Pino Luciano is a really nice guy. It is just that some of the things they turn out can be atrociously styled, but that is no knock on their workmanship. Part of it is what the shops specify.

Also in Quebec? Must have been funny over there...Have you got a French version?

I do remember listening to Rule Britannia once a week when i was studying in Wales...Was quite funny too because they're also far from being monarchist over there...

Que Dieu protege la reine...: You have to wonder; where WOULD this be sung? And when? And what consequences? No, I was raised in Ontario; the roast beef part of Canada,

Yeah but their stuff wasn't quite this garish until this "limited edition" business. I imagine they've hired some marketing consultancy that feels that they need to highlight the "exclusivity" of their brand.
