East Sicily Tailors - Page 22
My respect to Sicilian tailors, my full disrespect to Armani aka crapmani.
Armani was one of the ones who degenerated all the tailoring and good looking of centuries on tailoring to the atrocities he is know for, also the worst decade ever about style, late 80s, early 90s, he is the guilty one.
He even doesn´t knows how to dress properly, or maybe he doesn´t cares. He is only a magician on making believe to the masses his low quality garments are “ the best”.
He is guilty of the closing of tons of Made in Italy factories because his high priced garments, most of the time, are made by slaves on the IV World country paying them cents a day per labour just by being a pennypincher who asks 350 euros for a bad shirt that cost more of shipping back than to made itself due to poor materials used, perhaps 5 euros of making it.
Again, fantastic and informative thread, molto props my man
I understand the time involved for doing a jacket/suit and several fittings is longer than I have in Sicliy. However, would you think that Sig Arrigo would be able to do Trousers in a couple days? I understand trousers to be much simpler than a jacket, of course. I am going to be in Toarmina and staying in Linguaglossa for about 4-5 days and am wondering if that would be enough time for a couple fittings for trousers. What do you think? I'd like some idea before i contract Signore Arrigo.
Very nice. No fittings?
South Italian tailors are the best in the world (after Golden age Savile ones) , and ironically, the most underrated and underpaid.
I hope this thread give them the glory they deserve, just simply by basical dignity.
My tribute to all them.
My gratitude to
@UrbanComposition, eventually met Pippo and have the sport jacket made without a translator...wow, and Signor Arrigo brought us to have gelato near his atelier. well, my wife doesn't really know how to take pictures...and we supposed to take more pics onthe day we pick up the jacket, however all parking were full at that afternoon, i had to leave my car at almost the centre of the roadway, rush to collect the jacket without taking any pic......what a shame! Will try to post up more pic later on.
