I know UC brought both of those fabrics so my guess is yes.

 

I'm be going back and forth on a vacation destination for spring break 2017 with the missus.  This thread may very well influence my decision....of course I won't tell her that :)

Yes, CMT.

I don't know if Sig Arrigo will be willing to come out to San Francisco, but he wasn't averse to travel either. I'll mention it to him and see what he says. Sleevehead is trying to organize a NYC visit; I'll see if we can coordinate a visit on this side of the States. I have no idea of the particulars but Id hazard that the cost of everything will at least double if he does come.

Not being snarky at all, but will he bring a translator with him? I thought that was an issue with him that is easily solved when seeing him locally. Someone should also clearly discuss with him what it means to make a commitment to be a traveling tailor. See the Solito thread as a cautionary tale if you think I am joking.

Monreale is awesome but if you were in Palermo and didn't make a trip to Cefalu, you missed out!

I have used both Ercole and his son Frank for sport coats. In my experience, neither is at the same level as the tailors I mentioned. Both were less expensive by a good measure, but I was not satisfied with the work of either one. I understand that he has happy customers and Patrick booth's stuff looks really good. So YMMV.

Quick, I think we need an economist's opinion on this matter. Will the upswing in traveling tailors create competition between each houses ultimately leading to a lower price or is the price inelastic?

It looks like sleeve head is offering some reduced early bird prices for his Sicilian tailors.

Yeah, in other words, they travel here once to take your measurements and your deposit. What great value!

Fair enough. I'm not trying to internet fight, but your question was who are the bespoke tailors in NY, not who are the bespoke tailors whose work you like. I assumed from your list that you were aware of Ercoles, but some might not be.

 

And my point was more about how few bespoke tailors there are in the US outside of NY.

LOL, this interest is really exploding. Hopefully I get to visit Signor Arrigo next month before it really becomes a phenomenon.

Fair points. Thank you. Ercole is a legit option in NYC since he can do the work.

Guys, if he comes to the US, of course there will be a translator. If he comes to SF, I'll offer my own services as such.

BTW Sleevehead's early bird prices are pretty amazing. I'm hoping to have that for SF as well.

I got that email from sleeved and found it to be a turnoff. Is it a business or altruism to he help the Sarto?

I don't know all the details, but if he's spending time to bring a tailor across the planet I can only assume that's it's monitarily beneficial to both parties. If there were no financial gain for either tailor or agent I'd be pleasantly surprised and appreciative.
