East Sicily Tailors - Page 10

post #136 of 362
^ That looks nice. Who made the jacket and the pants?
post #137 of 362

Thanks.  Jacket's Chan and pants are thrifted (then tapered by a dry cleaner and cuffed by me using Ambrosi's XxX method).  What's really special about them is the fabric.  

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Some poly blend.  :)  Or possibly pure polyester, or nylon.  There's no tag or marking inside.

 Ambrosi's XxX method - Please tell me more.

Best method I've ever seen.

Incidentally, both Sig Arrigo and Palmisciano set the US price at $3000 for a suit, which is pretty fair considering the quality, amount of handwork, and fit.

Obviously more would be interested in the lower price, but check out the survey here:

I'd assume that the more people are interested in the "early bird" price, the more the tailors can be convinced to make the trip out. $1500 is a killer deal for a suit.

Can someone please direct me to this 'early bird' offer? Thanks

The survey is to provide Arrigo with stats, so Sleevehead can show him "X amount of people are willing to pay X amount for a suit/jacket".

UC are you doing something similar to gauge interest on the west coast?  

post #144 of 362

Arrigo have said to me that is not interested to travel in New York or in America.

He don't have never fly before,and is a quiet family man of seventy years.

Not sure what I'm looking at besides your sofa.

I see a blind hem done with a serger/overlock machine.

Is that standard in the UK? Cutting corners?

 

The tailors I have worked with hand sewed the cuffs in the manner described.

Not that it matters, obviously. But many made a point of not using sewing machines.

I think the standard way is sewing on the sideseams to attach the cuff to the legs
