East Sicily Tailors - Page 10
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)
Just chatted with Sleevehead, and he's actually putting in a lot of work behind the scenes to create the Kickstarter and make it something continuously profitable. If successful, he'll get a cut (like most agents) but by far the majority is going to the tailor. 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
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.
